tmp files from C:\Windows\TEMP\ show

WARNING - pri table exists, but has no rows

Manual investigation of this tables confirms this is the case with this table and other tables.

Environment

Release : 17.3

Cause

Customer previously did not have the prerequisite MDB client installed which prevented the population of the MDB tables.

Resolution

Verified files exist in "NX_ROOT/data/tagged" and "NX_ROOT/data/XML" 

Modified NX_ROOT\site\config.properties changing resources.created to 0

Ran pdm_configure and made sure to select "Load default data"

Tables were populated and services were able to start.
