What to Do When Gold Image Changes Don't Get Written to Cache

Product Line:  VERDE

If you are using the Cache I/O option/fumction, make a modification to your Gold Image, check it in, and the Cached version of the Gold Image does not update.  You may be pushing the limits of your available storage.

If you are using VERDE 8.1.2 or older,  there's a workaround.  You'll need to perform the routine during off hours, because you'll need to restart the VERDE services.  

  • Ensure all Gold Images are checked in.
  • In the VERDE Management Console/General Settings/General Settings, disable Cache I/O
  • From the VERDE Server command line, restart VERDE services.. (service VERDE restart)

  • Test by making a modification to a Gold Image and check it in.
