TFTP Replication caching

Hello Everyone,

I recently upgraded my ZCM deployment from 11.2 MU2 to 11.2.3.a. Now that I have updated, the tftp source seems to be cached somewhere and I can not get it to remove. I made a backup of the old files in the tftp folder and put it in the tftp folder. Since then I have removed the backup folder and made updates to a few scripts. I have forced replication to start from my primary server using ZCC, but it still is putting the removed folder and other older files on the satellite servers. I have even ran zac cc and zac ref bypasscache on the primary to see if that would clear it from cache. I have cleared the contents of the tftp folder from all the satellite servers and ran the replication again. I still keep getting older files that no longer exist in the tftp folder of the source primary server. I appreciate any assistance with this.

How do you start the replication? "zac cdp/cvc"? Or do you wait for the
schedule?

I clicked on "Start Now" in the ZENworks Configuration Console under Configuration>Preboot Services>TFTP Replication Settings

Re: TFTP Replication caching

So the “start now” TFTP Replication button should really be “check kindly, please, whenever you feel the need, to see if maybe you should synchronize”?
I also tried the following:
I deleted all the files in the tftp folder on the satellite servers.
I then ran zac cdp cleanup
I then ran zac cdp replicate
The satellites did replicate files to the tftp folder, but they were still the old files which included my backup folder.

Should I delete the tftp*.zip files from the satellites and the primary server located in /var/opt/novell/zenworks/content-repo/tmp/imaging and then click on "Start Now" to start the replication process over again?

Monsieurbob4,

you're not the only person who has seen this: Andersg (on of the KPs
who you'll see around in this forum) has seen the same thing. If you
can open a SR, I would suggest that you do so...
