Synchronizing libraries (and other master data)

We have libraries on workstations and servers. They are both .L folders and PCDL.  We’d like to keep them synchronized.  This question could also apply to methods and report templates. 

We could do it with scripts called by Windows Scheduler, but it would be tedious to setup and administer.  Does anyone have a better solution for synchronizing them?


  • Ryan,

    There is no automatic way to sync those files between servers and workstations. The files can be downloaded from ECM manually by SOP to sync them and Chemstation has a tool to update all methods from ECM, but both are manual actions. You might be able to setup BPM scripts in ECM but that would be similar to the use of windows scheduler.
