Do we need IIS on spoke computer

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi

We're doing a one-way sync from our FM Server to a SQL Server instance. MirrorSync is installed on the SQL Server instance which is configured as the spoke. This has been running for several years now with no problems. Do we need to run IIS on the SQL Server box? IT is on a mission to disable/remove all unnecessary services from our server VMs and have asked me whether IIS is required here.

I somewhat rashly said "I don't think so" and they've disabled IIS. I'm not seeing any error messages in the MirrorSync logs and data is synchronising with no problems. However  my MirrorSyncConfigClient.jnlp client doesn't seem to be responding. So is this dependent upon IIS? I suspect it is, but everything else is working as expected...

thanks

One of our IT guys has had a look at the snap-shot of the VM from last night and has found that there is an alias pointing to a directory in the 360Works folder, so he's re-enabled IIS and is putting it back the way it was.

 

Interesting that the important bits, the synch process just kept on going with no problems.

Yeah, MirrorSync runs as its own background service independently of IIS. However, as you discovered, disabling IIS will disable the ability to get to the MirrorSync launch page, which means you can't run the MirrorSync admin utility.
