    Hi all,
    We had an issue a while ago where we were replicating our images from the UK to our FOG server in the US. This was perfectly fine for a time, though we ran into the issue with our ISP where they cut our network down significantly due to the amount of data being transferred. I’ve since shrinked the image sizes, but I’m wondering if there’s some kind of setting that says to only replicate at a certain time of day that wouldn’t impact business hours? Or even have it on a schedule so it only replicates once a month? Is that possible at all?

    First the generic recommendation. Please update FOG you are several versions behind and on an RC release that has a known bug with image resizing.

    More than a generic one, this is a very strongly recommended and needed. We could end up wasting days on an issue in an RC that’s already fixed in the next stable release. Imagine asking Microsoft to help you fix something on a Windows 7 Beta copy.

    Second, to your question yes you can do that. What you will need is to setup a cron job to start and stop the FOGImageReplicator service.

    There is a variant of that process to change the replicator bandwidth during the day and then make it unrestricted at night. Again it involves a script managed by cron to change the FOG replicator setting and then restart the FOGImageReplicator service.
