Good morning, I have an issue after one of our Admins upgraded EEPC to version 5.2.13. On some of the PC's upgraded to 5.2.13 the SCM.ini file is being deleted. When the PC synch with the database, it does not update. If we copy the SCM.ini file from a backup of config files it will synch with the database and start updating. Any suggestion?
Thanks in advance
hum. the only time I've seen this is when someone added scm.ini into a file group (it does not by default exist in ANY file groups), then of course when they upgraded, the new file group they assigned to the machine did not have the file in it.
On the machines where scm.ini was deleted, is there a "removing file.." entry for it in the client log?
Yes, there is an entry for removing SCM.INI.

Any suggestions for correcting this?
Thanks in Advance
It means scm.ini existed in a file group that has been removed from the machine.
First question to answer is "why was scm.ini in a file group?" Someone must have added it as it's not there by default. And adding it as a file is generally a bad idea as you just discovered. If anything it should be added as a merge ini...
So, you can add the file to the new file group you are assigning to the machine, but knowing why it was added in the first place is key to understanding the root cause.
