I have BigFix (9.5.16). installed on an airgap network, i have a method in place to pull over updated sha1 files (collected offsite) and import them to: BES Server\wwwrootbes\bfmirror\downloads\sha1
That works fine, folder ends up with around 22,000 files in it. (1.9TB)
However after it copies down, the next morning when i try to patch something, the patch will sit on “Waiting for downloads to be mirrored”
I go check that downloads folder, and its down to like 9,600 files (800gb). Then i have to re-initiate the copy to get the files back to patch. its getting frustrating to do this every time.
I have checked the - _BESGather_Download_CacheLimitMB on the Server and i have it set to 2.5 TB (2500000)
and the folder (when full only sits at 1.9tb) clears down to around 800gb.
anyone seen this issue before? i have checked Event Viewer and its BigFix deleting these files, but im not sure how to stop this.
For Example, Thursday i copied down Feb 202 MS patches. Tried to patch some test machines today and its missing 1/4 of the Feb patches downloaded and placed in BES Server\wwwrootbes\bfmirror\downloads\sha1 So i had to re-copy them over, once the sha1 files are in the the patch continue with out a problem.
