Data Center Expert | Remote repository data overwritten if two appliances are using the same share.

Issue:
Information is overwritten if two or more StruxureWare Data Center Expert servers use the same remote repository and share.

Product Line:
InfraStruXure Central (ISXC)
StruxureWare Central (SWC)
StruxureWare Data Center Expert (DCE)

Environment:
ISXC, SWC, & DCE (all versions)
Remote Shares (Windows or NFS)

Cause:
If you add a remote repository that is already in use by another DCE server, the repository.id file is overwritten (which contains the MAC address of the server and mounted date). This may cause problems if multiple servers are using the same remote share.

Resolution:

Each StruxureWare Data Center Expert system needs it's own unique repository/shared folder.  These can be located on the same system, but the mounted folder must be different between the systems.
