LUA 2.x Ability to Manually Replace Files when Distributing
In cases where it is suspected that the files stored on a LiveUpdate Administrator 2.x Distribution Center (DC) have become corrupted (perhaps due to disk issues on the server where this DC is located), it would be useful to have the ability to re-distribute known good copies of the files.
(Indications that the contents of a DC have become corrupted: clients that connect to that DC receive Error: "6004: LiveUpdate did not complete successfully . . . " or "6004: Internal Authentication Failed . . . " or Message: "SECURITY_PACKAGE_NOT_TRUSTED" in Log.LiveUpdate after running LiveUpdate)
At present, attempts to re-distribute from the LUA 2.x server to the remote DC will result in a message, "Selected distribution centers have the latest updates for current selection."
It would be helpful to have an "emergency" manual distribution that would overwrite / replace the contents already present on the remote DC with the known-good copies that the LUA maintains in its download locations.
