Hello everyone, I just recently took over the Administration of our Afaria
server. I've been able to perform many basic and advanced tasks by reading
through the manual. In an effort to try to streamline a lot of the current
sessions that we have, I am trying to figure out to create an event that
will dynamically synchronize our client machines with documents from our
file server.

The session that we have in place right now simply transfers that contents
of a source folder. Whenever we delete a file in the source folder I have to
create an delete line command for each document that needs to be removed
from the client machines. We thought about having a command just delete all
files on the client and then just download all new files, but the problem is
that there are entirely too many files and with the varying connection
speeds the length of time to perform the task would not work.

I wanted to know if anyone has run into this type of situation and if so,
how would they advise me to approach this task. Our system is still running
5.2 and all the client Machines range from Windows XP to Windows Server
2003. Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions.

Congratulations! Welcome to Afaria. It may prove beneficial to you
to attend one of our public training classes to get a kickstart on
properly Administering your Afaria system.
On the Afaria Trial DVD we included a sample channel that uses only the
build-in session manager events to synchronize client and server
directories. The channel export is attached. Just import into your
Afaria system, modify to reflect your directory structure and test.
Another option would be to do the sync with a Session
Manager channel which utilizes a VBscript to process the sync.
On another note, you should consider upgrading your system to the latest
Afaria version (5.5) to take advantage if the latest capabilities of Afaria.

Do you have one that is compatible with 5.2? The Channel Administrator will
not let me import the file.

No. But this is a short worklist, it would only take a few minutes to
manually recreate. This newsgroup is focused on supporting the Afaria
5.5 Trial System. I'd suggest that you contact support or engage our
Professional Services for any other questions you may have for other
versions.

John, I was beginning to think that this was an abandoned newsgroup thread.
Thanks for the advice John, I will play around with the attached channel and
see if that works. I will also go over the specs of 5.5 and present to the
Director for consideration.
