    EPO Replication Problem

      Hello,

      We have a problem with replicating the EPO master repository to a distributed repository.
      After replicating the master repository to the distributed repository, we start the update on the client.
      The client returns the following errors:

      File update/Current\EPOAGENT3000META\AgtMetaDet.McS not found
      Error occurred while downloading AgtMetaDet.McS.
      Updates were not applied because the update process encountered an unknown error: EPOAGENT3000META.
      File update/Current\EPOAGENT3000META\AgtMetaDet.McS not found

      Here is the complete log:

      We did a file compare between both repositories and we noticed that not all files were replicated (so it seems there is some intelligence in the replication process).
      When we copy-paste the contents of the master repository directly to the distributed repository (which is hosted on a ftp site), the update on the client is without any errors.

      We use EPO 4.0 on Windows 2003. The distributed repository is hosted on an IIS FTP Site.

      What goes wrong? Any help is greatly appreciated!
