Good point Clara. But for the update process they copy all dirs and files to a replica server, and then back to the production server when done. They can't find the updated files on the replica. It turns out that our rework should not take more than a half day, so more the nuisance than anything. > You might also tell your network guys that REAL sysadmins > work under cover of night... > When the users are in bed. I like your attitude Art. I've tried that in the past, and also asking for notification before they begin. I may have to go higher. On the other hand, they might reply that REAL tech writers work in a secured source environment, which I will be looking into more aggressively. Thanks, Mike Long
