Administrator Machine (Field Machines) without Geodatabase Replication

Due to so many links to topics everywhere, and so many repeat, duplicate topics, I am placing this comment in topics I’ve already fixed that I know are linked to a bunch or that I know I have seen a bunch and that I want to ensure aren’t duplicates or see if I can reuse something {this is the case for Enable Dir Browsing and Configure Bits}.

Create the following directory on the Administrator machine. When setup is complete, copy this directory structure (and the Process Framework databases) to all field machines. The paths on the Administrator machine and the field machines must be EXACTLY the same.

  • ProcessFramework: This is the directory where Mobile sessions and designs are transported between the field and Enterprise. Make note of the path to this directory. In a later step, you'll create a configuration value (ProcessFrameworkField value) in the Process Framework database that points to this directory. If you do not create this directory and the configuration value, then Mobile will automatically use this location instead: C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Miner and Miner\ProcessFrameworkField. All other folders shown in this directory are created automatically during the initial send/receive. This directory must be readable and writable. This directory can hold your field Process Framework Database, but it doesn't have to. You can place this database in another location.

Directories on the field machines require no special sharing or permissions.
