    Our automated build process is invoking Unity from the command line (in batch mode).
    I wanted to update our build pipeline to also use the Unity accelerator, as such i appended the following command line options to our build:

    -EnableCacheServer -cacheServerEndpoint host:ip

    This did not work! i am wondering if it should work ? what am i doing wrong?
    Only when i enabled the cache server from Project Settings, it started working.

    I was under the impression that the CLI options override anything that is set in the editor ? please let me know if this is a real bug or expected behaviour.

    Hi

    What version of Unity are you using? And could you provide an editor.log file from a build run?

    It might be that you would need to add '-adb2' to the set of command line arguments. And yes, the CLI options are there to override the cacheserver project settings, so they should definitely be working.

    We are using Unity 2019.4.22. I can provide an editor log, sure (do you need the whole thing ?)

    Ah, ok, then you need `-adb2` flag as well. Reason being that the 19.4 release still has the old asset pipeline v1 available, so some of the logic checks for that flag. For version 20.1 and up, it's not needed.

    If you still have issues after adding the flag, then sharing an editor.log should enable us to figure out why it's not working for you.

    @henriksc good to know. i will try that. AssetDatabase v2 is set in our project settings from what i remember.
    Also, worthwhile to note that in the docs, in case it's not there (i didn't see it, but now i am not 100% sure i looked at the 2019.4 docs)

    On my jenkins with 2019.4.21f the -adb2 flag did it, a bit hard to troubleshout as unity log is silent if connection is not performed.
    Code (CSharp):
    1.  
    2. RemoteAssetCache - connected - 192.168.1.10:10080
    3.  
    My args :
    -adb2 -EnableCacheServer -cacheServerEndpoint 192.168.1.10:10080 -cacheServerEnableUpload false -cacheServerEnableDownload true
