FMS Shared network routing

Pioneer

Looking for some help\advice. Am looking at the samples in the System Admin guide for 10.1 regarding FMS configurations. We have the following setup.

One Enterprise server

4 local LAN cache servers (Same domain different subnets)

4 remote cache servers (Outsourced companies)

If a user at a remote site saves and checks in data, it is stored till store and forward retrieves the files. In this interim period another remote site might require this data, but and unable to see this cache server, so TC reports it as an FMS error to the remote site requesting the data, so looking for help tuning FMS Master to route, rather than a reverse proxy or other firewall based solutions.

Hello

The entry in the DB should have been made already, therefore even if another remote site needs the file it must not throw an error. If you think this is what is happening then please file an IR.

Thanks for the reply, but I believe the following happens, and my FMS file is maybe not right thus request for help

user A on remote site A opens, checks out and checks in partA

once checked in the DB reports that the file is now stored on cacheserverA. Dispatcher is notified and sets the schedule for retrieval.

User A at remote site B want to see this file, but when he calls the file, it reports as FMS Error, as the file is on cacheserverA, which his site is unable to route to.

If that is happening then it is an error. Please file an IR. GTAC will help you.

Have you tried using <grouproute elements in your FMS master file so that you can route calls between the remote sites through an FSC at your main site that has network connectivity to all sites?  

 

Example from Tc docs:

        <fscGroup id="fscRemoteGroup1">
            <fsc id="fscRemoteCache1"  address=“http://rsun1.ugs.com:4444" />
            <fsc id="fscCache2" address=“http://rsun2.ugs.com:4444" />
            <clientmap subnet="146.122.40.1" mask="255.255.255.0">
            <assignedfsc fscid="fscRemoteCache1" priority="0" />
                 <assignedfsc fscid="fscRemoteCache2" priority="1" />
             </clientmap>
             <clientmap subnet="146.122.41.1"  mask="255.255.255.0">
               <assignedfsc fscid="fscRemoteCache2" priority="0" />
                 <assignedfsc fscid="fscRemoteCache1" priority="1" />
             </clientmap>
             <grouproute destination="fscGroup1">
                <routethrough groups="fscRemoteGroup3" priority="0" />
                <routethrough groups="" priority="1" />
             </grouproute>
        </fscGroup>

 

You may want to set up a new FSC at your main site to serve as a proxy and configure it to avoid caching all files going between the remote sites.  

 

If that doesn't work for you, the other option would be to set up a proxy.
