A Forum reader recently asked:
“We have set “mailfile background creation” to true, but we also want to create a mailfile replica. The server receives the commands, but it ends with ‘databases processed: none’ and finishes the adminp process without responding with any error.”
And here is the response from Perry Nuffer …
If the ‘Create MailFile in background via AdminP’ GCV is set to true, and the ‘Create MailFile Replica in background via AdminP’ GCV is set to false, then when the driver attempts to create the mailfile replica, it will not be able to do so. That’s because the mailfile does not exist yet (as the AdminP ‘Create Mailfile’ task hasn’t been processed by AdminP yet).
If the ‘Create MailFile in background via AdminP’ GCV is set to true, and you want the driver to also create a mailfile replica for the new user, then you should also set the ‘Create MailFile Replica in background via AdminP’ GCV to true.
‘mailfile-adminp-create’ and ‘mailfile-rep-background’ are custom driver parameters related to these GCVs. These parameters toggle the background creation of the mailfiles and replicas.
The default driver has a rule (Add User E-Mail: Mail File Replication Settings) in the creation policy (sub-cp-AddAccountNotesOptions). This rule tries to account for the various settings of these potentially conflicting custom parameters.
