Database Administration

Caliber requires limited database administration but regular backups are strongly recommended. The main utility to administer the Caliber database is the dbmgr utility and the database owner is the user who installs the Caliber server and is the only user who can run the dbmgr utility, including backing up and restoring an existing database or create a new database.

A hard-drive defragmentation can corrupt a Caliber database. Before defragmenting the hard-drive where the database is installed, make sure all databases are stopped and remain stopped. The best method is to set each database to unstartable mode (dbinfo -0), and stop the SQM Database service.
