The BSI Maintenance Server performs automated backup, examines the databases for
error, and reclaims temporary space on your computer for all applications other
than POS Store & Forward, which has its own maintenance server.
Applications maintained by BSI Maintenance Server include
Each application product has a 'Settings' function available from the toolbar.
The settings function allows specification of a folder where a backup of the
database is made each day specified by the user at the specified time. If no
folder is specified a 'Backups' folder is created in the installation directory.
The handheld assistant does not have its own Settings function, but depends on
the Settings information in the parent application CookenPro. Until settings are updated to desired values, maintenance
occurs on Monday at 12:00 PM by default. The Maintenance server updates settings
each time prior to actually performing maintenance. This means that the server
will have to be brought down and back up if it has been installed prior to
properly making Settings entries.
In a network enabled configuration, backups and maintenance are performed on
each computer on the local copy of CookenPro. On the
computer where Network Enable is installed, backup and maintenance are performed
on the network database specified at installation. Network application database
(CookenPro) Backups are made to the directory specified
in Network Enable. This setting also controls backup and maintenance for the
Network Enable application.
The BSI Maintenance Server is normally started when your computer starts and
gracefully shutdown when the computer is shutdown. You can manually shut it down
by going to Start->All Programs->Startup->Maint Server and clicking. This should
cause BSI Maintenance Server to ask if you desire a shutdown. Termination is not
immediate and could take up to a minute. When you want to restart, do the same.
Occasionally, when uninstalling, BSI Maintenance Server is busy with an
applications components. In this case terminate the BSI Maintenance Server by
performing a Shutdown.
In addition to Event logging in each application, a complete log of activity is
maintained in 'maintlog.txt' located in the BSI Maintenance Server installation
directory. This is a very complete log of events with the most recent
information at the end of the log. You can examine this log by double clicking
and it should bring up Notepad. It also can be emailed to
firstname.lastname@example.org in the event that it is required for support.
