Sync Issues

The sync seem to be really slow.
2 days ago i added a new user to a scsm role and to the cireson analysts group. late yesterday afternoon she got access to the portal. that took nearly 24 hours.

yesterday afternoon we found that she had only read rights, so she could not edit any work items. so i added her to another group.
Now this morning she still couldn't edit work items. and that is like 18h after i added her to the group and ran the AD connectors.

so i did this:

First stop the Cache Builder service and then run the following commands against the ServiceManagement DB:

  • TRUNCATE TABLE CI$User
  • TRUNCATE TABLE CI$DomainGroup
  • TRUNCATE TABLE LastModified
  • Restart the IIS app pool
  • Restart the website
What i found out now is that all new pages i have created and assigned to a specific AD group have been overwritten. before it was only one AD group per page. now after the sync  2 pages have 4 ad groups assigned to them and 1 page have 8 groups assigned to it...

all of the groups is a member of our Cireson_Analysts group.

so, really slow sync and settings being overwritten. what is happening?

    Hi,

    What version of the portal are you currently on?  Or did you recently upgraded and this problem started? 

    Have you tried watching the Cachebuilder log when you restart the CB to see if any suspicious is happening?

    Hi

    We are using 8.12.6.2016, recently upgraded from 8.12.4.2016.
    But we are new to the portal, have been in use for maybe one month, so it is possible that we had this problem from the start.

    And the cache builder log is empty (logging set to error and service restarted 2 days ago).
    i have changed "Cireson.CacheBuilder.WindowsService.exe.config" to WARN now.

    Hi again, this is a big issue. Yesterday i added a few more groups to our cireson analysts AD group, today all those groups have access to the pages i have created, all new groups are listed under "assigned AD groups" for the pages.

    change the log to "ALL" to see more what is happening in the log.

    Have you tried restarting the cachebuilder, along with the IIS (app pool, and browser)?

    yesterday i changed the webconsole and the cachebuilder log to "ALL". i have now entered a new group into the cireson_analysts AD group and i am waiting for the sync to happen.

    You restart the Cache builder from the Windows service?

    I see you have opened a ticket with support. Looking over your log it appears that the permissions changed for the cachebuilder account. Is the account locked out or did the password change?
