In a Distributed Spectroserver environment it is a requirement that all the catalogues are the same on all the Spectroservers.
If they become out of sync you may see the following error:
"Two or more of the Spectrum catalogs in the DSS are in conflict'.
There is "More Information" link which provides more information as "Conflict have been encountered in the device identification settings within the DSS environment.
These conflicts exist because two or more of Spectrum catalogs are different.
Conflicts of this type may have been introduced by changing a modeling catalog using MTW or by failing to apply custom catalog work to all Spectroservers in the DSS.
All conflicts must be resolved in order to use the identification tab."
When seeing the above error you will need to reload a copy of the catalogue from the Main Location Server (MLS) database on all the other Spectroservers in the DSS environment by doing the following:
1. From your MLS
../SS-Tools/SSdbsave -c <file name> (This is a save of the catalog only)
2. Move the catalog save to all your other servers.
3. On each other Spectroserver do:
../SS-Tools/SSdbload -c <file name>
It is not possible to determine which of the non MLS Spectroservers have a catalogue that is out of sync with the MLS so you will need to load it on all the non MLS.
