Quickly Perform a Linkpath Correction in Place
If your SUPRA® PDM database linkpaths become damaged (typically from partial database restores or other incomplete operational processes), previously your only recourse was to:
- Do a full database restore from a known, good backup. With this method, however, you will lose any recent updates.
- Perform a dataset unload and reload. With this method, however, you could potentially lose some data records.
The Linkpath Editor (LKxxEDIT) is now available to enable you to perform a linkpath correction in place quickly.
If you choose to utilize the Linkpath Editor (LKxxEDIT Utility), be sure to first make a backup copy of your DBMS files.
The Linkpath Editor can be an invaluable tool and save enormous amounts of DBA time. But it can also be a very dangerous tool. If used improperly, it can further corrupt your linkpaths and make a bad situation worse.
