Controlling Database Sizes
How to reduce the size on your ARCServe database
Posted: 26 May 04
1.) Close all ARCserve programs (i.e. Manager, Server Admin)
2.) Stop ARCserve Database Engine Service
3.) Delete all files like *.CH? from the \ARCserve\database\ directory
4.) Start ARCserve Database Engine Service
5.) Start ARCserve Server Admin
6.) Select Database Engine tab
7.) Pull down the menu "Operation"
8.) Select "Initialize Database ..."
9.) Switch from "All Databases" to "The Database to be initialized"
10.) Select ONLY the Datbase "ASTPSDAT"
11.) Press the Initialize button
NOTE! This procedure will almost empty your Database.
Since the database is empty you can not restore without Merging back sessions to your database.
Each run of your Backup Job will fill the Database with new records (if you use the Backup Job Option "Record Detail Information"), so be sure to limit the history days in ARCserve Server Admin Database Configuration to 8 or 15 days. (We use 30!! Company Standard)
