Error description

  • Problem Description:
    
    CDP FPA.txt file on target system  is not updated correctly for
    continuous protection, when changing the protection level from
    "None" to "Local and Remote Storage" on source system and then
    publishing the settings using Central Administration.
    
    This happens when the user had continuous set to None
    and then and Admin tried to push a configuration with a setting
    other then None to the users system.

        from "Local storage only" to "None" and push OK button on
        Admin PC.
    
     2. local fpa.txt is changed
    
     3. Check the "Publish this computer's settings as the
        configuration template for other computers to use" check box
        in Central Management page. Then fpcommands.xml is also
        changed
    
     4. fpcommands.xml is distributed to target PC with keeping
        change. And fpa.txt is also changed on the target PC.
    
     5. Next, change "Continuous protection level" on Admin PC from
        "None" to "Local and remote storage".
    
     6. fpa.txt is changed on the local system
    
     7. Check the "Publish this computer's settings as the
        configuration template for other computers to use" check box
        in Central Management again. Then fpcommands.xml is also
        changed.
    
     8. The distributed fpcommands.xml on target PC has the change,
        but fpa.txt still has disabled="1".
