Duplicate mar files in deploy folder

  • 1.  Duplicate mar files in deploy folder

    Posted 21 days ago
    HI All,

    For few of the deployed virtual services, i could see duplicate mar and mar tracking files in vseDeploy folder. 

    Sometimes, if i remove the duplicate file it's impacting the actual deployed service. So the actual service is also being removed from the Portal.

    Please clarify me on the below points.

    1) Will there be any impact, if these duplicate mar and mar tracking files exist in vseDeploy folder ?
    2) What is the ideal way to remove/ stop generating the duplicate files.

    HI Surya
               IMHO, vseDeploy folder is internal to the working on DevTest. It contains all the deployed virtual services and its related data. Is there a specific reason you are paying keen attention to the files created in that folder ?

    Hi Sankar,

    Once I've seen in portal that, the duplicate services are deployed with the service names as  (<Service Name>_2,<Service Name>_3). Then i checked the vseDeploy folder, found that there are duplicate files of mar and mar tracking files in vseDeploy folder. When I removed them, automatically the duplicate services are also removed form the portal.

    From that point of time, i'm just observing vseDeploy folder, for duplicate files of mar and mar tracking files.

    Hmm....interesting and thanks for the background info. 

    Do you have the steps to reproduce the scenario ?

    No Sankar :( :( 

    Since these files are generating automatically, no specific steps to reproduce them.

    Hi,

    1) Will there be any impact, if these duplicate mar and mar tracking files exist in vseDeploy folder ?
    To my knowledge, no. The VSE behaviour is in sync with the .services file in the vseDeploy folder. MAR files listed in the .services file need to exist. There can be many additionnal files if they are not listed in the .services file then you can leave them there or you can remove them.

    2) What is the ideal way to remove the duplicate files.
    Cross-reference with the .services file, remove the ones not listed there.

    2) What is the ideal way to stop generating the duplicate files.
    I have never come across this issue so didn't even know the problem existed. I think it is only a problem if you delete the wrong file manually.
