Is there a way to find out how the central repository is being updated (auto vs. scheduled)?
Check the registry under the engine key HKLM\SOFTWARE\Imceda\SQLLiteSpeed\Engine\ActivityServers
There should be subkeys with SS instance names. Under an instance name key, there is a REG_DWORD value with the name PushEnabled
A value of 1 causes updates to get pushed (the *auto* setting), a 0 disables this (the other two options: scheduled and never)
If scheduled, you should see PushEnabled=0 and have a schedule to perform the work
