When clients are notified by the server to receive updates, the notifications are logged in the server’s notification queue.
When the server fails to process update notifications for some clients, component updates fail for the rest of the machines on the network.
When the server fails to process client update notifications, succeeding entries in the queue may fail because previous queue entries are not deleted to allow the next ones to proceed.
Set the server to regularly clean the notifications queue for client updates:
- Go to the ...\PCCSRV\ installation directory.
- Open the Ofcscan.ini file in Notepad.
- Add the applicable entries under the INI_SERVER_SECTION section and set an appropriate value for each entry. [INI_SERVER_SECTION]
0 = disable the function (default)
1 = enable the function
1 = clean the queue monthly
2 = clean the queue weekly
3 = clean the queue daily (default)
Where "h" represents the hour which can be set to any value from 0 to 23, the default value is "1".
Where "m" represents the minute which can be set to any value from 0 to 59, the default value is "1".
Where "d" represents the day of the month which can be set to any value from 1 to 31, the default value is "1".
Where "w" represents the day of the week:
0 = Sunday (default)
1 = Monday
2 = Tuesday
3 = Wednesday
4 = Thursday
5 = Friday
6 = Saturday
For example, to trigger a cleanup daily at 22:30, set:
Enable_Cancel_Notification = 1
Cancel_Notification_Frequency = 3
Cancel_Notification_Hour = 22
Cancel_Notification_Minute = 30
Cancel_Notification_DayOfMonth = 1
Cancel_Notification_DayOfWeek = 1
- Save the changes to the Ofcscan.ini file.
This will empty the notification queue according to the specified schedule.
