Is it safe to defragment the drive that stores the Caliber database?

Is it safe to defragment the drive that stores the Caliber database?

Problem:

Is it safe to defragment the drive that stores the Caliber database?

Resolution:


  • Product Name: CaliberRM
  • Product Version: All
  • Product Component: Server

Performing a windows Defrag with a live, active database can cause corruption to the data. Therefore it is important to carry out the following steps

  1. dbmgr -stop (Stop Server)
  2. dbmgr -backup (Takes a Backup of current database for safe keeping)
  3. stopdb databasename (Stop Database)
  4. dbinfo -0 (Make database unstartable)


  • Defrag the machine


  • dbinfo -m (Make database startable again)
  • startdb databasename (start database)
  • dbmgr -start (start Server)

    Once this is complete, the server is operational again.
