Comnand line vss

I am trying to use command line VSS to create a simple batch program that will let me do all my gets in the morning.  The problem is that when I do the ss <command> I always get a User <myusername> not found.  Even though I have done a set ssuser and also I can bring up the gui and see my user there.  Has anyone else seen this problem and if so how have they fixed it.


RE: Comnand line vss


You might want to check that you don't accedently have multiple VSS databases.  Some people have been known to accendentlly install a DB with the client applications when they just want to connect to a server.

If you do have multiple databases you should make sure you are communicating through the command line to the correct one.


RE: Comnand line vss


Thanks.  Thats exactly what happened.  All I had to do was set a property to say which database to use and I was fine.
