What steps did you follow to reinit the RME database?

Stop all CSCOpx services, and after that, check if there are some CSCOpx processes in the task manager.

If yes, kill it and reinit the RME DB by the following command:

%NMSROOT%\bin\perl %NMSROOT%\bin\dbRestoreOrig.pl dsn=rmeng dmprefix=RME.

hope this help!

hi all,

thanks for the reply. i did stop the server net stop crmdmgtd and then go to command prompt and go to the bin directory. then type perl dbRestoreOrig.pl dsn=rmeng dmprefix=RME. then it asked me that all the data will be gone and i say yes.after that it is saying that could not delete the rmeng.db,syslog1.db,syslog2.db,syslog3.db but do the reinitialization until it say reinitialization complete.any idea?

another thing is after the re-initialization process, the RME database and syslog.db files are not going empty. their sizes are remain the same. is it normal for successful reinitialization. thanks.

You have to see if you have the rights permission to delete the rme and syslog db.

You can try this:

- Stop CRMdmgtd daemon

- backup all rmeng db (rmeng.db, SylogFirst.db, SyslogSecond.db, etc..).

- delete the above files from %NMSROO%\databases\rmeng folder (warning at not delete the orig folder!!)

- run this command:

%NMSROOT%\bin\perl %NMSROOT%\bin\dbRestoreOrig.pl dsn=rmeng dmprefix=RME

thanks for the reply. i will try this tomorrow. another thing is "ianywhere". when i try to start the RME db after re-initialization, there is a pop up and it says "ianywhere" and give the message as "shared violation: another process may use the file".

is "ianywhere" coming together with cisco product. i've never encountered this before. thanks.
