Question:

What information is stored in each folders in the Scalability Server ServerDB folder.

 

Environment: 

CA Client Automation - All Versions

  

Answer:

The CA\DSM\ServerDB holds a lot of information (mostly temporary). 

Most of the information is downloaded from the Domain Manager or uploaded from the Agents so in most cases the folder can deleted and the data 
will be restored when CAF is recycled.
 
Below are all the Directories and Sub Directories Under ServerDB and what information is located under them:
 
Common            Stores a copy of the ‘basic’ inventory, and registration details.
                          Can be used to re-register all Agents, and rebuild basic inventory (cserver clone command).
                          Useful for moving Scalability Servers between Domains.
                          Data is stored compressed/encrypted, ‘cserver dump’ command provides readable view of all data.

                  Collect            Uncollected registration/basic inventory is stored here

                  Master            Previously collected data is stored here. ‘cserver clone’ command copies this data into ‘Collect’ directory for re-collection

 

Metering        Holds data for Software Metering 

 

RC                  Holds temporary information on Remote Control connections

                Module                   Keeps records of which Inventory Modules and their schedules to be run on each computer

                New                        Keeps the information of new UNIT/ agent registration .

                SSFU                       UNIX/Linux  Signature Files

                SSFW                      Windows  Signature Files
