In 4.6.3, if I had top move a node from, say, Lost & found, to it's proper spot in the tree, I only had to drag it...
but in 4.6.4, drag-and-drop doesn't work...it's like I can "drop" the object, but the "move" function doesn't apply...
Anyone else with this issue?
I've just tried here and the drag&drop function seems to work as it did before. If you try with different browsers, or from different machines, do you get the same results?
Drag and drop is very intermitant, It can take up to a minute just to move 30 computers.
In some cases you think it fails,,, wait 2 minutes and it will refresh .. computers were moved.
I have to move, instead of Drag and drop in most cases.
A quick test here shows that it's fast moving from a folder with a large number of boxes to an empty one, but moving to a folder with a large number of boxes already in it is slow.
This is a changed behaviour from previous releases of ePO 4.6
Thanks all - this is interesting. I only tested with a single machine to ensure that it still worked, so I'll try again with larger numbers.
ottawa_tech_31 - is this what you're seeing? Or does moving a single machine to an empty folder still fail?
It's probably easier if I put this in a scenario.
In my lost and found this morning, there are 23 machines
2 machines with VSE 8.8 + hotfix that prevents agent upgrade (they still have 126.96.36.1992). I dragged those 2 machines to the my group for "old agents" and the moved instantly. The destination group has about 40-50 machines in it.
Also in Lost & Found, I have 21 new machines with the proper agent (188.8.131.522) ,and I want to drag them them my "Workstations" group, which has around 9000 machines in it. The Drag and drop never happens..I "drop" the machines on the group...and nothing
Interestingly, if I make a new group and drag and drop one of those machines and put them into a group the move happens...same thing with dragging multiple machiens at once.
But to get them into my proper workstations group., I end up having to select them all and doing a "move", because I can't drag and drop them,.
The fact that I can move them means that I do have rights to that spot in the tree (I'm a global admin w full rights),
This worked just fine in 4.6.3, so it' s a behaviour change in 4.6.4
I hope this helps.

That's basically the same as my scenario, except I have a mere 2300 in my main 'workstations' container.
In my case, most if not all times the move eventually happens.
Okay, this is interesting... I've had a play with this and the behaviour has definitely changed: what I don't know at this point is why
Please open a case for this - I'll keep investigating.
I just opened one. For your info...
In the meantime could you do a test for me? If the symptoms are the same as I''ve observed, then (as Phil describes) the move will eventually happen - it just may take a very long time.
Could you just try and move a single machine into your Workstations group, and then just leave it - does it complete? If so, how long does it take?
