Thanks for all the replies! Here is the fix; (be sure to have all passwords ready!) run the DSMU, go to server, connect dataserver, then server, connect intralink admin, then go to backup/restore, then select read/write mode Thanks to all for your help! HI folks it's me again. Our installation of Intralink 3.2 has sat dormant for a while - still too many people scarred to use it. But that's not why I'm writing, I am in the process of firing Intralink back up in our office and will be upgrading to 3.3 as soon as I'm done testing 3.2 out. I am the administrator and when I try to check in the test objects I encounter a CONFLICT of "Database and file vaults in read only mode" I have gone to the Administrator section of Intralink and the Status of the Vaults is Read/Write. The Storage Clusters are Read/Write as well. I have gone to the Windows 2000 server and checked the attributes of the folders. Everything appears to be set correctly. Martin T.
