I have a custom Add-in for PDM Pro 2017 SP2.0 that is modified occasionally for business needs. When I publish the files in the Administration tool, I then go the SQL and set the Archive VersionUID = 1 because PDM doesn't version system files (for whatever reason). This setting allow the add-in files to replicate to the other servers and to the corresponding users.
SET VersionUID = 1
WHERE ArchiveType IN (2,3)
AND VersionUID != 1
The problem I'm having is: a couple of our remote Archive Servers and users never receive the updated files. No matter what replication settings I use or permissions I assign (to the client PC or PDM) I can't get the add-in files (.dll) to replicate. My work around is to manually copy the assembly to the users' appdata folder where PDM should put them. You can imagine this is a cumbersome work around. I'm hoping someone out there has dealt with a similar issue because my VAR hasn't been very helpful. Does anyone know what setting to try or at least how to force replication?
