What should I do if there is a need to destroy and then create an iidbdb
database? I've read that while creating the iidbdb one should use -S
flag. OK. But how can I destroy it? Destroydb refuses to do this.
For example the disk with iidbdb data, journal, dump and checkpoint
catalogs has crashed (let's imagine that they all are on the same
physical disk). I've tried to emulate the situation and moved all these
catalogs to another place. Then I've tried to create an iidbdb. There
was an error saying that iidbdb is already exists. Stopping and
restarting Ingres hesn't helped. What should I do in this situation?
Thanks in advance,
Yes, I've tried to leave the directory itself on the position and delete all
files in it. But again recieved the following message from createdb:
E_DM0124 Database already exists.
Maybe you have any other advices?
