PC Adm: Data Disk Not Updated After Regenerate

When creating a remote user data disk with version 3.0 or 3.0a of the Administration program for Microsoft Mail for PC Networks, changes in address information may not be correctly updated.

If the Administration program is left running after the data disk is first generated and until the address information is changed, the regenerated data disk does not contain any address changes. The date and time stamps of the files on the regenerated remote data disk reflect the date of the regeneration but the address information in the RNETWORK.GLB file is left unchanged.


To work around this problem, exit the Administration program after the remote user's address information has been changed, then restart the Administration program and regenerate the directory view selecting either Update Disk or Init Disk. The newly created data disk reflects the correctly updated address information selected for the remote user.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in versions 3.0 and 3.0a of Microsoft Mail for PC Networks. This problem was corrected in version 3.2 of Microsoft Mail for PC Networks.

Additional query words: 3.00 3.00a user name admin
