Greetings, everyone.

We've seen an issue where VisualCron seems to be ignoring the server referral order in jobs that use a DFS share to process.

Here's my example.

We have a job that is set to copy and rename files at a certain time every day. The source and destination path are Windows DFS shares. A change was made to the server referrals so that a new server becomes the primary DFS server. VisualCron continues to use the old referral server.

Has anyone seen this or know a way to have VisualCron rescan DFS share info to get the most recent referral server? I know Windows clients do this every 15 minutes. How can we get VisualCron to do something similar prior to running a job?

Thanks, all!!
