I am herewith attaching the error screenshot & the logs captured
in one of the client system. actually we are using a Microsoft office
2007 access database for our project purpose & it was stored under the
encryption path. Whenever multiple users were try to work on the
database its throwing an error & it's trying to recover the database.
After two attempts its corrupting the access database & we wereforced to restore the database from backup. So please analyze the logs
Was the database file on a server network share? Which EEFF version do you use?
How large database file is and how many concurrent users have access to it?
Yes, Peter, Database is on network and EEFF version is 3.2.5
It's a 70MB file & it was accessed by 5 users simultaneously.Message was edited by: Ram Dudani on 8/13/10 5:09:56 AM CDT
I would contact McAfee support on this issue. They might tell you that EEPC is not supported for multiuser network file access.
The best is to prove that multiuser access on unencrypted database file works fine. Did you do that test?
Already contacted McAfee and waiting for their reply since long.. ,
Actually my exceptions are high with Community..
the same scenario was working fine before encryption and right now also its working fine when we decrypt the database and exclude from ecnryptionMessage was edited by: Ram Dudani on 8/13/10 8:25:44 AM CDT
Any more info about this? I'm testing out EEFF 3.2.5 and this is one scenario I would probably use EEFF for.on 10/14/10 12:58:18 PM CDT
Sharing an access database like that for multiple simultaneous users is not really what the system was designed for - there's no object locking between users, or transactional write arbitration for example - see
But, it kind of works as long as you have the DB set to open in "Shared" mode
There's a great writeup on the whole topic by Albert Kallal - http://www.members.shaw.ca/AlbertKallal/Articles/split/index.htm
having EEFF in the mix just complicates things further though as we have to rely on the file cache being "helpful", and many other aspects of the OS and network remaining stable.
