    Has anyone successfully scripted a IOSCacheRefresh? Looking to get an example if anyone has one.

    Thanks,
    Joe

    Below is a script that you maybe able to use to automate an IOSCacheRefresh. An installation of cURL (3rd party tool) will be needed as well.

    @echo off
    SETLOCAL

    SET CURLDIR= (the directory where cURL was installed)
    cd %CURLDIR%

    ****run over SSL**** *****if not over SSL, remove the -k switch & replace https with http*****
    curl -k -L -b dummy.txt "https://yourservername/sso/SSOServlet?_ssoUser=Lawson ID&_ssoPass=Lawson Password&_ssoLogin=Login&_action=LOGIN&_fromLoginPage=TRUE&_language=en-us&_ssoOrigUrl=https://yourservername/servlet/IOSCacheRefresh&_serviceName=SSOP" -o iosrefresh.txt --stderr iosrefrerr.log

    IF NOT EXIST iosrefresh.txt GOTO END

    FIND /i "Refresh complete" iosrefresh.txt > NUL

    IF NOT ERRORLEVEL 1 (GOTO LABELGOOD) ELSE GOTO LABELWRONG

    :LABELGOOD
    ECHO IOSCacheRefresh COMPLETE %DATE% %TIME% > iosrefresh.log
    COPY iosrefresh.log + iosrefresh.txt > NUL
    GOTO REMOVEFILES

    :LABELWRONG
    ECHO IOSCacheRefresh NOT COMPLETE %DATE% %TIME%. cURL errors are shown below > iosrefresh.log
    COPY iosrefresh.log + iosrefresh.txt + iosrefrerr.log > NUL
    GOTO REMOVEFILES

    :REMOVEFILES
    IF EXIST iosrefresh.txt DEL iosrefresh.txt
    IF EXIST iosrefrerr.log DEL iosrefrerr.log

    :END
    ENDLOCAL

    installed cURL on AIX6.1, and curl -k -L -b dummy.txt "https://yourservername/sso/SSOServlet?_ssoUser=Lawson ID&_ssoPass=Lawson Password&_ssoLogin=Login&_action=LOGIN&_fromLoginPage=TRUE&_language=en-us&_ssoOrigUrl=https://yourservername/servlet/IOSCacheRefresh&_serviceName=SSOP" -o iosrefresh.txt --stderr iosrefrerr.log

    replaced: ssoUser and ssoPass, output from iosrefrerr.log:
    infappqa1:RDC:/tmp>cat iosrefrerr.log
    % Total % Received % Xferd Average Speed Time Time Time Current
    Dload Upload Total Spent Left Speed
    100 2000 100 2000 0 0 7265 0 --:--:-- --:--:-- --:--:-- 7380

    login to portal to check, but change did not work. when i IOSCacheRefresh browser, it worked fine. any idea ?

    if you can paste that entire URL in the browser, and it works, then it might be that the version of curl you have doesn't support SSL.
    Thanks for using the LawsonGuru.com forums!

    If you are using a vertically scaled cluster (in WAS), you need to set up your IOSCacheRefresh to take into account all of the servers, too. I thought that there was a KB article about how to do that, but I haven't been able to find it.
