Use of On Air RB with production RB
« on: February 13, 2020, 08:39:39 AM »
Having trouble arranging the best way to set this up.   Both the main RB "air" server A and production machine B access the MySQL music database on the NAS via M drive - works well.

RB A hosts all presets, schedules, ad folder etc in the djsoft subdirectory on C drive.
How should RB B machine access that subdirectory to be able to sync everything? 
Is it better to use machine B as the master for scheduling ads and copy to A?  Should I sync the .sdl files on each machine?  If I create a preset on B, how can I ensure this also appears on A?

Should  the djsoft subdirectory be mapped from both machines as well as the database perhaps?

Can you please explain which files need to be mapped so as to ensure updates occur on A when B is modified?   What happens if there is a third machine wishing to access A?

Sorry but I find this aspect quite confusing and I'm sure many users here face this issue and would appreciate any hints.

Hey Chris,

I have the same setup too and face the same challenge as you. To compound it. My "C" Studio is located at another location (A and B are same location where B is used to programme Adds and Playlist) while C is for resiliency. I too am look for a solution to keep all in sync with less manual effort.

It won't be possible to "sync everything" automatically, RadioBOSS does not offer such thing. You can synchronize only the items you need, e.g. using scheduled events to load event list, using shared network drives or Dropbox or similar technologies to synchronize music/ads content.
