Understanding DbCreate Utility
Various Database errors
The DbCreate utility provides you with the basic tools you'll need to create and remove an I/NET SQL database. After creating an empty database, you can use DbCreate to import data from a previously installed I/NET 2000 version 2.x system in order to upgrade to I/NET Seven.
Note: In most cases, you will probably use DbCreate's graphical user interface (GUI) in order to interactively perform tasks. However, you also have the option of performing DbCreate tasks silently from a command line. For information about using the command line, refer to Using DbCreate from the Command Line. Ref; Online Help "Using DbCreate".
Use DbCreate to perform any of the following tasks:
Create an empty database To create a new SQL database.doc
Import I/NET 2.x data Importing I/NET 2000.doc
Import a Docutrend archive Importing a Docutrend Archive.doc
Verify the existing SQL database Verifying the Existing SQL Database.doc
Remove an existing I/NET SQL database Removing an Existing I/NET Db.doc
Backup an SQL database Backup an SQL Database.doc
Restore an SQL database Restore an SQL Database.doc
Upgrading the database Upgrading the database.doc
Recording a Log File
When you activate () the Record logfile, DbCreate will record a log file. The path and filename may be specified. If no path is specified, the file is created in the current directory. Also, if the path specified is invalid, the current directory is used.
There are two levels of logging: normal and verbose.
By default only significant events are logged. When the –V (verbose) flag is set, other informational events are also logged.
Once an operation has started, its progress can be monitored in the lower half of the DbCreate dialog. Side-by-side progress bars show the overall progress of the operation (left progress bar) and of the individual task being performed (right progress bar). A scrollable text area keeps a list of actions that are being performed. The text includes the result of each action performed.
If you have chosen to import I/NET 2000 2.x data, the Start button changes to Abort, and all other controls are disabled. Pressing Abort will attempt to stop the operation in progress. In this case, the database will contain only partial data from the I/NET 2000 system that was being imported.
