Does Quest support the cloning of vWorkspace installations, components or databases?
During some limited internal testing, numerous problems have been discovered directly relating to the cloning of vWorkspace. The vWorkspace suite was never designed to function when its components were cloned. Problems may include
- Dropped client connections
- Crashing of the Connection Broker
- Intermittent crashing of the Quest vWorkspace Services
The cloning of vWorkspace installations including components, database etc. is not supported and there is no workaround other than performing fresh installations.
The cloning of vWorkspace and its components and running two copies of the product simultaneously is also against the Terms in the Quest Software EULA agreement.
