What is the function of the MmSecondaryCacheRefresh job?

Directory and Resource Administrator 6.50


The MmSecondaryCacheRefresh job provides a measure of redundancy in case the MmReplicate job fails.  

When the MmReplicate job runs, it copies six files from the primary Directory and Resource Administrator server to any secondaries.  These six files, who's names begin with the words listed below and include a timestamp, are copied to the C:\Program Files\NetIQ\DRA\Refresh directory on the secondary server.

  • Accounts 
  • Exchange
  • Policy
  • Schema
  • Security
  • ServerConfiguration

After the files are copied to the secondary server, the primary makes another call to the secondary and instructing it to load the copied files.  If this call fails for any reason, DRA runs the MmSecondaryCacheRefresh job every four hours, forcing the secondary server to load the replicated files.
