I have upgraded my EE server to 5.2.x and new client file groups have been created accordingly. In my environment the SDMCFG.ini file is also in the EE for PC client file group. When I change the Client Files applied to the machine group it first downloads the new files, then updates the exisiting ones, and finally removes the old version. During the removal process it removes the SDMCFG.ini file. Is there a way to change change the order or another way to resolve this outside of creating a separate SDMCFG.ini file group?
If you have SDMCFG.INI in your old 5.1.7 client file set, make sure that you have another copy in 5.2.x client file set.
Pay attention to file object ID's and revisions. Make sure that file in 5.2.x client file set has higher ID and revision. You can achieve that efect by making numerous file "export" and "update" operations.
you can increment a file revision just by pressing the "apply" button - but, I don't see how this helps? If you add a new file, it's a new file (object) - so why would the revision number compared to the original file (a completely different object) matter in the least?
