Using BestSync with multiple users

Post by ctobias »

Hi!
We have installed BestSync on a VM running multiple tasks as a service. This works well.

We are having the issue that we are three persons maintaining the BestSync configuration. Now we were stumbling across the fact that when one person does a change to the task configuration, this has no effect for the others although we are using the very same project file.

Can you enlighten me why this could happen? is the configuration stored internally somewhere else?

Thanks, Christian

If the task is set to run as Windows Service in the schedule settings, then all the users can see the task settings.
So you can just set the tasks to run as Windows Service, then any os the users can manage the settings.

Thanks for the swift reply and clarification!

However, we were stumbling across the fact that we somehow managed to run a Task twice in a row with different configurations. This was not intended, off course. So we are trying to find out why this happens.

In the Log is appears e.g. like this:
-----
2022/02/17-04:28:07,Start task by scheduler: PRD move VG Azure to local
2022/02/17-04:28:10,Start task. PRD move VG Azure to local
-----

Can you explain what the difference between those two executions is?

Thanks & Regards
Christian

The two messages point to two different stages of the same task.
That does not mean that the task was started twice.
