Problems with folder replacement using Change Utility
Resolution:
Detailed Description and Symptoms

When Trying to replace the folder name with the change utility using the following syntax for example in the changescript:

REPLACE_PART FOLD "\MAWI\SCHEDULE", FOLDER_NAME, "SCHEDULE", "SCHEDULE_WEEKDAYS"

Nothing happens the folder names stay the same.?


Investigation

A lot of our customers had these issues even tho it is described in the documentary, but can be easily misunderstood.

It might be a little confusing but in the Automic documentary it says that the syntax of the object name should not be in quotation marks, in this case the path "\MAWI\SCHEDULE" is the object name.


Solution

Simply remove the quotation marks so the syntax of the changescript looks like this:

REPLACE_PART FOLD, \MAWI\SCHEDULE, FOLDER_NAME, "SCHEDULE", "SCHEDULE_WEEKDAYS"
