Mirror settings have no effect on other Agents on other computers, which will continue to mirror on their own schedules. File-locking is not available when mirroring is suspended. If two or more users edit the same file while mirroring is suspended, the last version of the file uploaded is considered the current file; however, as always, all versions are saved and any version can be made the current version. For example, suppose an Agent in Istanbul connects to the Vault and uploads myfile.doc. Then an Agent in Chicago connects to the Vault and uploads myfile.doc. Because the Chicago Agent uploaded last, that file version prevails over the version uploaded by the Istanbul Agent. However, you can make any file current in the Job Details page of the Vault interface.
To change the mirroring schedule
Open the WAFS Agent Manager and click the Agent in the tree.
Click the Schedule tab.
Click a replication mode:
Mirror Continuously - The default mode, real-time, always-on replication. Any change to any file or folder is automatically mirrored.
Suspend Mirroring - The Agent is in offline mode. Users can still access the files and modify them, but these changes are not replicated to the Vault or to other Agents.
Mirror on a Defined Schedule - You can specify to allow replication only at certain times, such as Mondays and Wednesdays between 2:30 a.m. and 4:30 a.m. Select the check boxes of the days desired, Start time (in 24-hour format, e.g., 18:00 = 6 p.m.), and Duration. The Agent is disconnected from the Vault except during these times. (Users can still access the files and modify them, but these changes are not replicated to the Vault or to other Agents until mirroring begins.)
Click Save to save the changes.
