Pinned topic Upload files to Software Distribution Packages

‏2011-09-01T10:40:15Z |
We have just started to use "Manage Software Distribution Packages". When uploading files we get a warning "File uploads in progress". That warning doesn't go away. We have even tested with small files (less than 50KB) located on the BES server itself and using the local console to bypass potential FW-problems Still the upload doesn't seem to finish. Version 8.1.617.0

Any ideas?

Best regards,
Espen

    Look under "Setup" and make sure you have deployed the Fixlets including downloading and registering the server download plugin.

    Thanks Ben!

    These fixlets where all listed as non relevant.

    The relevance clause for "Setup" was incorrect. Made a custom copy without the incorrect relevance check, installed and everything is fine now.

    I had this issue, but my problem was that the BES plugin service was not running as the Active Directory service account that had rights to the database. In our case, the DB server is a separate box, and we use NT auth on the service accounts. If you simply deploy the plugin service and install the upload service plugin via fixlets, it can only start them as local system. Change service login account, problem solved.

    +2 to the service login account solution. After changing it from local system to the correct AD account name all started to work.

     

    thanks for posting the solution!
