Creating new strategy allows existing strategy to be overwritten without warning


Applies To:

  • PAC Control Basic
  • PAC Control Professional

Versions Affected:

All versions prior to R10.4a

Resolved In Version:

R10.4a


Symptoms:

With the following steps, a new strategy will erase the contents of an existing strategy without any warning:

  1. Create a new strategy (File > New strategy) in PAC Control.
  2. In the Create New Strategy dialog, select an existing PAC Control strategy.
  3. Click Open. PAC Control creates a new blank strategy, effectively deleting the contents of the existing strategy.

Workaround:

Do either of these tasks to ensure you don't lose an existing strategy:

  • Create a new folder for the new strategy.
  • To make it possible to recover from overwriting an existing strategy, configure each strategy to do an automatic archive of the strategy. In PAC Control Config mode, go to File > Strategy Options. In the Archive tab, make sure that there is a check on at least one of the archive strategy options.
