Software Engineer, Doug Redmond, developed the Autodesk Vault Mirror utility that has since graduated from Autodesk Labs. The Autodesk Vault Mirror utility was compatible with Autodesk Vault 5 or Autodesk Productstream 5. It was not compatible with Vault 2008. Vault Mirror functionality is available in the Vault SDK for Vault 2008.
In the Vault Mirror for Vault 2008 thread in the Autodesk Vault discussion forum Doug noted:
For those of you using Vault Mirror upgrading to Vault 2008, you probably noticed that Vault Mirror no longer works. You probably also noticed that Autodesk Labs does not have the updated version. The reason is that Vault Mirror is now part of the server install... but it's a bit hidden. You can find it at "Data Management Server 2008\SDK\VS8\CSharp\VaultMirror\bin\Release". The readme file is in the folder 2 levels up. You can copy the files to a different location if you want.
Vault Mirror is now considered part of the SDK (software development kit), which is why it lives in such a strange location. The good news is that A) it's part of the install and B) the source code is included. So if you know how to program on the Vault API, you can take a look at how it works and tweak it for your own needs.
Graduation ceremonies are sometimes alive in the lab.
