1.7.6 won't save changes

Hi there, I've updated from a working 10.7.4 to 10.7.6. Since the update, some changes I make in the Admin app to workflows are not saved. I can change the content of a task, but if I add new task it is generally not saved once I reboot the server. If I just quit the Admin app and restart it, everything is fine. But if I reboot the computer or just restart the server in Preferences then changes are generally lost.

Mac Mini Server (Late 2014), OS X 10.12.6, server 5.3.1

Thanks!
Den

Re: 1.7.6 won't save changes

I discovered a couple of additional things: If I run the Runtime app, the new items I added are there and work, but if I restart the server then the new items go away. Also, my NetBoot set isn't working - it's just spinning globe until it times out. Don't know yet if that's unrelated.

Nobody else has had this, or has any ideas how to approach the problem?

Posting more in case anyone has ideas or at least for posterity in case this happens to others.

Another weird thing - I can quit DeployStudio Admin and the new workflows will show up. But if I reboot or restart the server, they are lost.

Now I can see the older workflows in the repository itself, and I know it's reading the repository because I'm able to add/remove packages and other items and they show up in DS.

Creating new workflows being saved stopped working after August 1st (I was able to create something that day) around when I updated the server to Sierra and the system to 10.7.6.

Re: 1.7.6 won't save changes

OK my last post led me to the solution. Somehow my DSAdmin lost write permission to the deploystudio share - the user was simply not in the list of allowed users in Server.app. Fixed and fixed.

Yay!

A marginally related story:
I recently (after an external repository ungraceful disconnect) had to uninstall, reinstall, then walk through configuration of the DeployStudio Server in order to see any but the default 4 workflows.
After reattaching, repairing the repository (diskutil), and a couple of reboots, still no progress.
Next quick fix option was uninstall/reinstall. I could then see all of the workflows. We have 2 more imaging servers in various locations, so no one was breathing down my neck for resolution. Thankfully, it was only a matter of a couple hours (with interruptions...).

Congrats again!
