After an ungracefully shutdown of SpectroSERVER, I can't start Archive Manager. The error is as follow: "Can't find file: 'event' (errno: 2)"

After an unexpected shutdown of the server where SpectroSERVER is running, the Archive Manager does not start.

The error message in $SPECROOT/SS/DDM/ARCHMGR.OUT is as follow:

Can't find file: 'event' (errno: 2)


This error message is reporting a problem with the MySQL database files. Specifically, those for the event table.




To repair the Archive Manager database:

1. Log into the SpectroSERVER system as the user that owns the Spectrum installation

2. If on Windows, start a bash shell by running "bash -login"

3. cd to the $SPECROOT/SS/DDM directory and run the following command:

./ArchMgr -repair

NOTE: This could take some time depending on the size of the Archive Manager database

4. After completing successfully, start the Archive Manager process as normal
