Hi,

We have been having problems with our IPM application not starting.

We run it, along with the other LMS 2.5 applications on Solaris 5.9 servers.

When we do:


./ipm start server

Starting IPM Naming Server...

-- IPM Naming Server Started.

Starting IPM Database Server...

WARNING: Unable to start IPM Database Engine.

WARNING: Possible database log does not sync with database.

WARNING: Will try to force start.

Abort - core dumped

ERROR: Unable to start IPM Database Server.

ERROR: Please have the database /opt/CSCOcwbS/db/CSCOipm/IPMDB.db

ERROR: and try again.

IPM Database failed to start!! Will not continue...


I found something this for Windows, but I find nothing for Solaris


Any ideas, greatly appreciated

Shutdown all of the IPM daemons (if any did start) then post the list of contents of the /opt/CSCOcwbS/db/CSCOipm directory.

Hi

Thank you for your quick response

The IMP daemon is not working, you can see doing:


# /opt/CSCOipm/bin/ipm stop


IPM Process Manager NOT Running.


IPM Database Server NOT Running.

Okay, looks like you have a corrupt transaction log (at the very least). Delete IPMDB.log.0, then run:


env LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/CSCOpx/objects/db/lib:/opt/CSCOpx/lib /opt/CSCOpx/objects/db/bin/dbsrv9 -f /opt/CSCOcwbS/db/CSCOipm/IPMDB.db


Then restart IPM. If your database is in tact, it should start.


In the future, DO NOT touch the IPMDB.log file. This is a binary transaction log, and cannot be rotated.

Hi,

I deleted IPMDB.log.0 and ran the comand, but I had a new error:


# env LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/CSCOpx/objects/db/lib:/opt/CSCOpx/lib /opt/CSCOpx/objects/db/bin/dbsrv9 -f /opt/CSCOcwbS/db/CSCOipm/IPMDB.db

Then I restarted IPM, and had the same response:

Did you remove the log first? If you did, then your IPM database is corrupt, and must be reinitialized with the command:


ipm dbclean

Looks like it's time to uninstall and reinstall IPM. You've lost your original IPM database.
