Recovery Mode

Recommended Posts


We have had situations where a record has been deleted from the Hosted database and then reappeared. I've chalked this up to a client getting into Recovery Mode. That Spoke still has that record and so for safety's sake, MS will recreate that on the hosted side. Does that reasonable?

If so, what *will* put a Spoke into Recovery Mode? If any sync fails, does the next sync put them into RM? Do they stay in RM until they have a successful sync? If that is so should a Spoke then seek to have a successful sync *as soon as possible* to keep Recovery Mode from putting records 'back' that were deleted? i.e. the longer a Spoke has a Failed sync 'pending' the longer this circumstance creates a higher likelyhood for this to occur.

Anything else about RM that's valuable to know? Thanks, Mark

Mark, I forgot to mention - the version I sent you today (3.1203) fixes an issue where recovery mode could be engaged when there are multiple syncs simultaneously running.

If user A is running a sync, which writes records to the server, and then user B starts a sync after that but before A finishes their sync, then B runs in recovery mode. This is now fixed.

In addition, there is a client-side change to the MirrorSync script which prevents recovery mode in the case where the client aborts the sync when waiting for a response from the server. You won't get this feature until your users get an updated file with a new MirrorSync script, but their existing script is still compatible.

Thanks Jesse. I'll get it installed as soon as I'm back in the office.

Appreciate your work for us all. Mark
