How to know if files are being copied/detected from the Replication server
I have set up a couple replication servers that I have configured and want to confirm the systems I am testing with are getting their info from the rep server and not the KACE device. I have the replication job set up and unchecked the "Failover to Appliance" in the replication detail.
I found an old response on here from back in 2011 or 2012 but did not match up to the files I am looking at.
The old article is still valid.
The only difference is that the location has been changed.
Look into your KAgent.log (s) (under c:\programdata\quest\kace\user\ ) for lines like that:

This shows that the patch has been downloaded from the Repl Share.
MI and scripts are similar.
