puring database

Is there a way to delete everything in the database. I need to dump the old
data and pull in the new infomation from the workstations. Or do I need to
remove and remake the filestore?

Re: puring database

Check the help in the Asset Manager for "purging the database".

How large is the database?
Are you running any interim releases or patches?

Re: puring database

Set the ZAM system to retain history for 1 day, delete all workstation
records, wait >24 hours then run a purge.

If you have a small ZAM system, few or no Local products, and (as you
said) no IRs applied, it might be simpler just to blow it all away and
reinstall from scratch - will probably take about 1-2 hours.

When the existing clients connect to the new system (assuming they resolve
to the Collection server(s) on the same IP addresses as before) then they
won't care that it's a new ZAM system - they will run the New Workstation
scan and be added to the clean database.

If you are running Software Usage monitoring you might want to switch this
off before you blow away the original system, run a final workstation scan
then blow away the servers... then switch it back on again after the
rebuild. This is to stop the weird-looking side-effect of usage being
monitored & reported on BEFORE the new ZAM system reports the software as
being first detected (during the first scan). Hope I explained this ok -
let me know if I didn't.
