summary: determining if database has been put in read-only mode
Thanks for solving my problem so quickly! I asked two questions so here are the answers:
Question 1: How do you determine if the status of the database (read-only or read-write)?
Answer: The PDMServerStatus program returns, in my case, "0" if it's in read-write mode, and "7001" if it's in read-only mode. To get this command to run, it's probably best to put it in a batch file as follows: ------------ set path=%path%;<dataserver loadpoint=">\intralink\ilink_lib set PDM_ORA_APPL=intralink <dataserver loadpoint=">\intralink\obj\PDMServerStatus INTRALINK INTRALINK ------------
Question 2: How do I fix my batch file (why does it stop running after the ilink_export command)?
Answer: Preceed the line with the ilink_export command will the "call" command as follows: call <ds loadpoint=">\intralink\export\ilink_export manager intralink.dmp
Thanks to Brian Hurler and Daniel Harlan for the help.
