LMS 2.6 Corrupt

Answered Question
Aug 4th, 2008

Another cry for HELP !

The server that hosts our LMS2.6 application crashed overnight after some Microsoft Updates were applied and now LMS2.6 is totally unusable !!.

When I launch the application it is okay , but going into Campus Manager/Topolgy Services it simply pops up a red hexagon with an "Error" .

I think that the database is completely corrupt , how do I reset it and start again ?

Please post the output of pdshow as well as the recursive directory listing of NMSROOT\databases. Your database may not be corrupt. It may just be the transaction log.

I also need the recursive directory listing to be able to tell if this is DB corruption or transaction log corruption:

dir /s NMSROOT\databases

In each of the databases subdirectories, you will find a .log file (e.g. rmeng\rmeng.log). Delete each of these files. Then, for each database, run:

NMSROOT\objects\db\win32\dbsrv9 -f DBFILE

For example:

NMSROOT\objects\db\win32\dbsrv9 -f NMSROOT\databases\rmeng\rmeng.db

Once you have done that for each database, restart Daemon Manager. You should be up and running again.
