Import: Connected data sources moved?
  •     rng February 25, 2015 10:40AM
    Facing a rather strange issue with 'data load/refresh'. Similar to one posted on this thread:

    Error Message: "The external data source DataManager is not available. Make sure that the file has not been renamed, moved, or deleted. Check your network connection is working."

    Any thoughts? Thanks in advance

    Is that a new data source or existing one that you're trying t refresh? Can you navigate to and open the data source from your machine?

    There were few network (SharePoint) connected data-sources, which had moved.
    I always thought Omniscope would maintain a snapshot & the data-flow would 'break' only if the user explicitly attempted to update the data-source (which was moved).

    Sorry for any inconvenience...Should have checked thoroughly (although this error was witnessed for the first time)

    Rohan - You can change the refresh/update behaviour on each DataManager source block, even turn it off...and if you want to build a reporting data flow that uses a local static snapshot of a data source (in IOK format) you can do that too, but it does not happen by default, since the assumption is that all data sources are potentially changing at any time.

    The default setting on all Source blocks is to monitor each remote data source for changes and refresh on any change, unless refresh behaviour options are explicitly changed for a given source.

    If you've moved the data source location Omnscope will not be able to track it and keep connection unless you re-map it.
