Description:

HarRefresh uses the HarRefreshd daemon process running on a reference box to perform synchronization with the reference box.

When the reference box is on a Windows platform, only one HarRefreshd daemon process at a time is allowed to be started as a service.

Solution:

To synchronize from multiple brokers to a single Windows reference box which is only running one HarRefreshd daemon, the HarRefresh for each broker can utilize the same HarRefreshd daemon.

This works because calls to HarRefreshd from each broker receives details of the reference directory specified in refresh.txt plus the broker name as specified in the HCO command generated by each HarRefresh call's UDP. Given these supplied values, the HarRefreshd daemon will synchronize without conflict.
