Problem:

If I clone an image containing the Cross Platform Client how can I ensure the cloned clients use different workstation ID"s when connecting to the server?

Resolution:


  • Product Name: StarTeam
  • Product Version: 2005 - 2008
  • Product Component: Cross Platform Client
  • Platform/OS Version: Windows


Each Cross-Platform Client has a unique WorkstationID that is generated the first time you open the client. The client creates a file call ConnectionManager.ini that contains the ID. The file can be found in:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Borland\StarTeam
(Note the Application Data folder is hidden by default in Windows)

Before cloning you should delete this file from the master image so that all cloned images will get their own unique file when the StarTeam client opens for the first time. If you already have clones then simply delete the file in each image and let StarTeam create a new file. Having duplicate WorkstationID"s can affect the behaviour of the client.
