Cisco Emergency Responder ERL imports

I need to import a couple of thousand ERLS into CER 7.0 (large business has ERLS down to the room level).

I've been testing the ERL import tool to try to make sure a large import will work, but even with one record, I get the following output:

Number of Records Inserted: 0

Number of Records Failed validation:0

The end result is that the ERL is not added. I looked through the logs and see this in the CERAdmin logs:

458: Feb 23 12:47:09.961 EST %CER-CER_SYSADMIN-3-ERROR:Failed to read Building Tag fileFile not Found /usr/local/CER/nena_msag_records/validate.txt (No such file or directory)

459: Feb 23 12:47:10.437 EST %CER-CER_SYSADMIN-3-ERROR:Status message from ERL import

460: Feb 23 12:47:17.381 EST %CER-CER_SYSADMIN-3-ERROR:Failed to read Building Tag fileFile not Found /usr/local/CER/nena_msag_records/validate.txt (No such file or directory)

461: Feb 23 12:47:17.626 EST %CER-CER_SYSADMIN-3-ERROR:getFields: null

So it looks to me like it's trying to look for the non-mandatory Building Tag field in the validate.txt file and failing.

Does anyone know how I get around this--what to put in the file to get it to skip the Building Tag file?

Or does anyone have a sample import file that works, so I can follow the format?

Thanks in advance.


Re: Cisco Emergency Responder ERL imports

Building Tag field can be used if you want to import MSAG fields from Building Tag file. The location of building tag file is

>>%cerroot%/nena_msag_records/validate.txt. We cannot add any new fields in the validate.txt file.
