Depending on the version of DFM, it has up to five separate databases. DFM 2.0 has three Sybase (ASA) databases, dfmInv, dfmEpm, and dfmFh. Then there is an EMC repository file under NMSROOT/objects/smarts/local/repos/icf/DFM.rps. DFM 3.0 has all four of these databases, plus an additional DFM1.rps repository file for the second instance of DfmServer.
The three ASA databases can be reinitialized using dbRestoreOrig.pl. The rps files can simply be deleted when dmgtd is shutdown, and they will be recreated once the DfmServers start.
I have been instructed, by TAC support, to re-init DFM 2.0.10 a few times already in an effort to resolve inconsisent and or incorrect email alerting. Both times deleting the .rps file was NOT one of the steps.
Is this something I should be concerned with?
My email alerts broke again and since I couldn't get reliably inconsistent behavior from DFM, I had to close a TAC case yesterday. Today, its broken again.
If you reinitialize the Sybase databases, you should also delete the .rps file. I have filed a bug against DFM about missing notifications. The bug is CSCso28593, and a patch is available from the TAC.
