Apologies in advance for the length of this email, but my story cannot be told in brief.
Ever since the 1.5 upgrade, my synced YJ libraries have been a trainwreck, and as of yet, I have had no luck getting BB support to give me a useful answer on how to fix it. No offense to them intended, and they may well be working on the solution as I write this, but I thought posting to the list may help. I have been unsynced for going on a week now, and completely frustrated. Here is the situation. I have 5 machines that sync over dotmac, 3 of which sync a YJ db: a BlackBook running Leopard, a G5 running Leopard, and a G5 running Tiger. Of the three, only my laptop has a working, full YJ db; the other two are empty, save the "Welcome to Yojimbo" note that, friendly as it is, I am sick to death of seeing, its continuing presence signifying my ongoing syncing nightmare. I'm not sure what exactly went wrong in the first place, but I suspect it had something to do with the YJ library upgrade mandated by version 1.5 happening at the same time that an automatic sync was taking place. Whatever the cause, what I ended up with was a syncing error across all three machines that would not go away. Fortunately, the library on my laptop is current and intact, so I have not lost any data. I have had a similar problem before, and appealed to support for assistance. They sent me a detailed set of instructions for fixing the problem, which did work each previous time around. The solution then was to 1) backup my main library, 2) Delete libraries and caches from all other machines, 3) halt synchronization and delete local sync data from all machines 4) Reset dotmac syncing 5) Sync each machine, merging all data. This time around, this procedure did not work. I have applied the appropriate set of steps to each of my machines, multiple times over, to no avail. I have also tried unregistering and re-registering each machine, replacing data from the good machine to dotmac, and replacing the data on the bad machines from dotmac. Still, no dice. When I sync now, whether automatically or manually, the machines go thru the motions of a sync, even warning me about a greater than 50% change to the library (at least in the beginning, when the sync state has been reset), but even then, no items are added to the empty libraries. (It may or may not be useful to know that all other dotmac data is consistent and up-to-date across all 5 machines.) Since I have one intact library, and two empty ones, it seems to me that it SHOULD be easy enough to trick the bad machines into thinking that they have never had YJ installed on them, and sync as new from the good machine thru dotmac. At one point these machines had never seen YJ, so I can't see why they can't be restored to a virgin YJ state again. Does anyone here have any suggestions on how to proceed?
