I am setting up a new replicated vault in EPDM 2012 SP4. The vault creation process goes well, and I setup a schedule routing to run. Few things we noticed. If the job terminates accidentally (network connection dies) or purposely (we kill the service, put a 1 hour stop on replication) then replication will NEVER start again. I was able to reproduce this issue numerous times with my vendor. I deleted the replication and created a new replication job. The log shows 402,313 files need to be replicated, but nothing ever happens. The weirdest thing is that we can do on demand replication no problem after we disrupt the replication. REbooting does not fix scheduled replication. The only way to get it to work is to delete the replicated vault and create a new one.
Serious bug solidworks.
Found out that you can't even kill the service through the epdm archive tool, it just hangs. Never stops.
