Delay Windows App Start
« on: November 03, 2011, 11:18:14 am »
OK I understand (?) there is a need to delay the start of FlexRAID for 15 seconds or whatever.... but I have several Windows apps that load files from my pool and without the drive existing they basically get very confused.

Is there an easy way to make those apps load AFTER FlexRAID's pool is active? Is this where the FlexRAID scripts come in?

Easiest work around - make a batch file with all programs you need to run after the pool init, and run it manually. If you want to be 100% sure that pool is loaded already, put this .bat file to the pool, so you cannot accidently start it before the pool init.

If they are services, with some registry entries you can make flexraid as a requirement for them to start.
