Bundles not included on servers

I'm just testing the waters here, but I'm seeing a strange issue.

When looking at the content tab (11.2) on the servers, some bundles
shows as "not included". And on all servers.
When I click "Include" they just magically appear as "Available"
without as much as trying to replicate.

Cosmetic error?

Regards
Allan

I think it depends on the type of the bundle. If it's a bundle without
"content" it would be available at once. But if it was a bundle with
let's say a MSI install action, then the content (MSI files etc.) had
to be replicated to the new server. Depending on the schedule it could
also be fast.

Re: Bundles not included on servers

One of them was the Office bundle, and that would have some file in
it. Actually - all those that was missing had files.

Re: Bundles not included on servers

Do you have multiple Office Bundles?
It's possible the content was already there from other office bundles.
Content is not duplicated if its the same between bundles.......

So if I have a bundle with a MSI in content repo and then makes a small
change (not in the file content), it don't replicate more than just the
changes I've made, right?

Re: Bundles not included on servers

It's file specific.

So if you update an MST, just the MST replicates.
If you actually alter the MSI, the whole MSI gets replicated.

If just settings in the bundle are changed, nothing is replicated since
those are stored in the DB.

Re: Bundles not included on servers

I can accept that. But wouldn't they be "Included" on just one of the
Backend Servers?
I have bundles that have no files at all, that are replikated,
included and available. These bundles was neither.

On top of that, these bundles seem to have been made when just one
server was up (just a hunch though). Now theres 4.

Sorry if I get this (what you vrote) wrong. But yes if there's made
changes to the bundle it will get replicated to all the servers unless
they are excluded.

How is the default replication configuration? On zone or folder (both)?
