12.50 PxPlus on Server Changes to 12.51???
« on: August 15, 2018, 11:21:23 AM »
So we have PxPlus 12.50 installed on the server with matching windx on the clients.  After some time goes by, the server reports version 12.51, but since windx still reports 12.50, nomads won't run.  We haven't installed 12.51.  Any idea how this version mismatch is happening?

The version numbers on the server should not be changing unless there was an update of some kind.

The system checks when running Nomads to make sure that the WindX version is at least equal to the host version to avoid the system generating commands to WindX that it does not understand.  Now technically 12.51 is unlikely to generate anything 12.50 cannot handle but its a generic check for version numbers.

You can likely just remove it temporarily by editing *obj/nomads.pvc.

Thanks for the information on where to change the version check.  We noticed the version change a while ago and didn't pursue it since it seemed harmless.  We installed 12.50 and without doing anything it somehow changed itself to 12.51.  To our knowledge there is no automatic update enabled.  Is this even possible for the server?  I thought the automatic update was only for windx.
