ANI database engine service terminated unexpectedly

I was having issues last week with the ANIServer process (busy flag set). I had used the following:


NMSROOT/bin/perl NMSROOT/bin/dbRestoreOrig.pl dsn=ani dmprefix=ANI


which helped to get the server to a stable state (all processes running, no apparent issues).


I just rebooted the server today and found the following in the event logs. To get the server back up and running, I use the above command again.


Has anyone else been running into this issue?


The CiscoWorks ANI database engine service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 1 time(s).

It's entirely possible that the shutdown corrupted the database. Windows does not wait long enough for Daemon Manager to stop when it performs a shutdown/restart. Therefore, it is ALWAYS recommended to do a "net stop crmdmgtd" before you shutdown or reboot a server to ensure that all of the databases are shutdown properly.

In this case, I did use "net stop crmdmgtd" first, ran a backup job to image the server, and then rebooted. The error happened after that.

You might have a bad disk. Can you reproduce this simply by shutting down Daemon Manager, and rebooting? I have LMS 3.2 installed on two Windows servers, and two Solaris servers, and I am not seeing any such corruption issues.
