Hi Sunil,

 

Probably best that you raise a support case and supply the dlc.log, text file and the exact command line that you used.

 

We can take a look to see what might be going on.

 

Thanks

Hello Sunil,

Please ensure that you have stopped HP_PMDB_Platform_Timer service before using the utility.

Secondly, Can you please let me know what mode where you using DLC for? To delete duplicates or to delete older CIs and on which table? Also ensure that you are running the utility with commit mode.

Thanks

Do try to generate a list of CIs that will be deleted for your criteria - this can be done using one of the cmd line options to the tool.

I suspect this list mght be empty which would point to an incorrect criteria.

Let me brife you all experts about what i have done ,

 

I have downloaded the CI details and removed CI for which i need reporting and kept the CI details in text file for which i dont need the reports.

 

After executing the command "Dimensionmanager -inactive_dim_delete -caption K_CI_SYSTEM -file <File path and name> -mode commit " it executed with error. so as per the input if all the data are fetched correctly then the CI's Listed in the file was suppose to remove.  But this didn't happened and the case also raised against to it still no solution suggested for it.

 

Is there any other things we need to follow apart from mentioned in guide or is this bug or is there any issue for it.

 

Thanks,

Check the log (%PMDB_HOME%\log\dlc.log) for errors. There is currently one known issue where if the number of CIs is too great then an error ensues and you can reduce the number of CIs in the file to process.

 

Try reducing the list to just a few CIs at first (< 10) and retry.

Sunil,

 

Please be aware that the DLC tool will not remove the entries that you see in the Admin GUI under Collection Configuration -> HP Operations agent - it removes data only from the Sybase IQ database, so dimension and fact data.

 

Is it the GUI you are still seeing the data in?

 

Currently deletion of nodes this way is not available but you can disable collection for the nodes concerned.

 

Thanks
