Setup is 8.7 SP6 server. Most clients are SP5 or 6.
Preferred servers are setup at each of our 50 sites usign robocopy to keep them synchronised.
I've encountered the first problem across multimple sites.
- The client only gets every second file from the preferred server, the other time it comes from the core. In some cases it will get 20 files from the preferred server then alternate getting files from core and prefeerver. I've attached the SDCLIENT.log and i've changed the name of my core and the preferred server to CORESERVER and PREFERREDSERVER.
- the preferredservers.dat file references an incorrect server, I saw this today where it referenced a preferred server for another site, what I think happened was a laptop was in the Carlisle office yesterday, received a distribution task so had the carlisle preferred server in the preferredservers.dat, then the laptop went to the Colwyn Bay office, a peer received a push task and looked to the laptop for a cached preferredservers.dat and got the laptop's dat file that pointed to the Carlisle server, then most of the devices on that subnet got a preferredservers.dat that was pointing to a wrong server - should that happen?
