How can i clear completely my WCS database?

I would like to clear the wcs data base and put my database backup without overwrite the informations (maps, logs,).

Is it possible ?

Re: WCS DataBase

You could export the maps and then uninstall WCS and install it back. The license will still work since the license is tied to the hostname of the server.

I don't think you can just wipe the DB on WCS, I know you can on NCS and Prime.

Re: WCS DataBase

Scott, thanks for your reply.

I found the below information in this doc, but I don´t sure if it will erase the current database:

     Reinitializing the Database

  • If you need to reset the database because of a synchronization problem or a corruption of some type, enter {install directory}/bin/dbadmin.(sh|bat) reinitdb to reinitialize the database.

I have two WCS, (wcs01 and wcs02) and  I need export the database from wcs01 to wcs02.

Do you know if I do it, wcs02 will mix the current database with the new database ? or wcs02 will replace the database ?

thanks a lot

It will replace... there is no merge... be careful with that!!!!

Thanks,
