Due to the size or data integrity of the Spectrum Report Manager (SRM) database it may be necessary to recreate the database from scratch without performing a new installation.


Release : 10.2.x, 10.3.x, 10.4.x

Component : Spectrum Reporting


Please follow the following steps in order to complete this process:

1. Login to the command line of the Report Manager system as the Spectrum install owner.

2. Login to the reporting database via mysql using the following commands:

cd <SPECROOT>/mysql/bin

./mysql -uroot -proot reporting -A                                                                (Windows)
./mysql --defaults-file=../my-spectrum.cnf -uroot -proot reporting -A          (Linux)

3. Run the following commands in mysql:

select * from registry\G;           (Copy the "ServersList" field and store it in a safe place)
drop database reporting;
create database reporting;

4. Stop and restart the Spectrum Tomcat service. This restart will re-create the database.

5. Log back into mysql using the same commands in step 2 above and run the following:

update registry set ServersList = '[Values from Step 3]';

6. Stop the Spectrum Tomcat service again.

7. Run the following commands to initialize the database and pull in the data from all Archive Managers for the last 45 days.

cd <SPECROOT>/bin

./ root root -initHist 45 -all

8. Start the Spectrum Tomcat service.
