Data Center Expert | Remote repository data overwritten if two appliances are using the same share.

FA158426

9/05/2020

Issue
Information is overwritten if two or more StruxureWare Data Center Expert servers use the same remote repository and share.

Product Line
StruxureWare Data Center Expert (DCE)
- Basic Appliance (AP9465)
- Standard Appliance (AP9470)
- Enterprise Appliance (AP9475)
- Virtual Appliance (AP94VMACT)
StruxureWare Central (SWC)
InfraStruXure Central (ISXC)

Environment
StruxureWare Data Center Expert (all versions)
StruxureWare Central (all versions)
InfraStruXure Central (all versions)
Remote Shares (Windows or NFS)

Cause:
If you add a remote repository that is already in use by another DCE server, the repository.id file is overwritten (which contains the MAC address of the server and mounted date). This may cause problems if multiple servers are using the same remote share.

Resolution:

Each StruxureWare Data Center Expert system needs it's own unique repository/shared folder.  These can be located on the same system, but the mounted folder must be different between the systems.
