IC54792: CDP FPA.TXT FILE ON TARGET SYSTEM IS NOT UPDATED CORRECTLY FOR CONTINUOUS PROTECTION, WHEN CHANGING THE PROTECTION LEVEL
Closed as program error.
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. CDP Versions Affected: 31A Customer/L2 Diagnostics (If Applicable) Steps taken to recreate: 1. change "Continuous protection level" in CDP "General" page 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".
