Problems reititializing DFM DB

I became frustrated with device problems in my LMS 4.2 DFM module, so I decided to start from scratch and reinitialize the DFM databases using the procedure described by Joe Clarke in this document:

I stopped daemon manager, then initiialized dfmInv and dfmEpm DBs with no problem.  However, when I get to dfmFh I hit a wall. I issue the command to reinitialize and get no response.  I have issued it twice.  The first time I waited about 10 minutes then hit ctrl-C to cancel out.  Now I have been waiting at least a half hour and still nothing.  I haven't even received the Do you want to continue [y/n]? prompt.

Here is the command I used from within the NMSROOT\bin directory: dsn=dfmFh dmprefix=FH

Any ideas?

Problems reititializing DFM DB


Ok hard to admit this on a public forum, but I didn't precede the command with "perl".  My excuse is that on other platforms I typically associate the .pl extension with perl.exe, so I am somewhat in the habit of not doing that.
