    Need Help! Force content-repo replication on 2nd primary srv

    We have two primary servers that we will call 101 and 102. Both have virtual ntfs disk maps for the content-repo directories(link). Our 102 primary server somehow lost all data on the drive that was connected to our SAN so now we have an empty directory.

    We have tried multiple ways of trying to force the data to resync such as excluding content sync and re-including, but non seem to force the content data to resync.

    If I create a new bundle on 101, it replicates to 102 as expected and the files/filenames match on both sides. The problem is that all existing bundles somehow think they already exist on the server so it is not replicating probably because of the database entried.

    I assume we cannot simply copy C:\Program Files (x86)\Novell\zenworks\work\content-repo from 101 over to the same directory on 102?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks!

    Hi
    The file of the contented name is linked in the database and is the same on every server. So a copy of ZENWORKS_HOME\work\content-repo\content should help. (Please make a backup before you try)
    To reinitialize the sync of a bundle you can try:
    Excluding content sync from 102
    Wait for the cleanup process (during the night)
    On the next day include the content on 102 and wait for the synk.

    By the way:
    There is a problem with alias content at ZCM 11 that is fixes in 11.1
    You get alias content, when you copy a bundle. After deleting the original bundle ZCM 11.0 do not replicate the content.
    If you are using 11.0 I would prefer the copy.

    Ghuebner,
    Thanks for all of the helpful information. We had tried the Exclude/include process previously which did not work for us unfortunately.
    Because of some other issues with the server, we ended up rebuilding and bringing it back into the zone which synced all again.

    This is all good info to know for the future and your comment about alias content was new information to me as well.
    Thank you,
    Luke
