Guys

Is there a automated way to stop only Transfer on the 25th of each month at 23H58?

Hello,

As per the invoice transfer service rule you can not automate the service to stop for a specific date. There is a only way to run the service is manually or automatic.

So if you want to stop the service on a specific date then you have to stop the automatic invoice transfer service it self.

Thanks,
Satya

Hi.

I'm thinking in a possible solution but it's some kind of workaround. Assuming you just have one Transfer license, you could create a scheduled task to open a batch file in that date/hour. The batch file needs two lines to:

1.- Kill task eitran.exe (this will stop the service)
2.- Open Transfer Module (as interactive). This will consume a transfer license, but not transferring any document as you won't be executing any transfer job.

This way the transfer service won't work as you already have an instance open and service will error because of license availability. To restart the service you will need to close the interactive Transfer module and service will start working again.

It's just a workaround, but I think it could work.

Hope it helps.

Kind Regards.

Hello,

Why don't use the Windows scheduler to execute, in due time, a script with the instruction:
Code:
net stop "INVOICES Transfer".


To restart it, use this instruction:
Code:
net start "INVOICES Transfer".


By the way, it is always a good thing to restart INVOICES services once a day.
And it is highly recommended (if not mandatory) that no invoice is interpreted during the maintenance jobs.
Personnaly, I run the following script once a day:

Code:
net stop "INVOICES Transfer"
net stop "INVOICES Interpret"
net stop "READSOFT"
net stop "FilleZilla Server"
delay 300
net start "READSOFT"
call "C:\Program Files (x86)\ReadSoft\INVOICES\Bin\eimngr.exe" /m MasterData
call "C:\Program Files (x86)\ReadSoft\INVOICES\Bin\eimngr.exe" /m Maintenance
net start "INVOICES Transfer"
net start "INVOICES Interpret"
net start "FilleZilla Server"

My confuse! I'm still running 5-8 on my current projects.
Actually, my contacts at Readsoft told be that 5-9 was causing many problems and that it was a bit early to implement it. Do you have the same return of experience?

HI Nicolas.

We are running the 5-9 and have no issues with the services so far. We have noticed that interpret is a bit slower and consumes some more resources, but nothing critical.

In the other hand we've tried to process invoices in color (from start to end) and the transfer is a complete disaster if you want to keep your images in pdf format. We imported pdf files with size 800Kb, then Interpret converted the pdf into tif, then Transfer converted again the tif into a pdf (instead of using the original file), as a result, the final pdf was 15 times bigger than the original file (like 12 Mb) and had a lower quality than the original file. Transfer service also hanged with large invoices (more than 70 pages in the same invoice and you have a 15Mb pdf that freezes the service). Patch 1 fixed the problem.... by transferring the pdf in black and white instead of color, so the problem is not really fixed if you want to use color images from start to end.

Hope that helps.
