Troubleshooting validation and promotion process errors
To troubleshoot possible errors in the validation and promotion process, you can perform tasks described in the following sections:
Monitoring the thread manager for a validation or promotion process that has stopped responding
When you start a validation or promotion process, records are added to the DMT:ThreadManager form. At the end of the process, the records are deleted.
You can search for the records in the DMT:ThreadManager form. If the records are not being added, modified, or removed, the process has stopped. Perform the steps listed in the Recovering from a halted validation or promotion section.
Recovering from a validation or promotion process that has stopped responding
If the validation or promotion process has stopped responding before the operation is complete, an administrator must perform the following steps to resolve the issue:
- Reset the maximum number of filters for an operation to the original value.
- If you encounter the following error, check the Short Description field in the forms that have the error flag set:
An error was encountered during data promotion. The Short Description field of this record has been updated with the error details.
- Check for other errors as described in the Checking for errors in validation and promotion topic.
To reset the maximum number of filters for an operation to the original value
Open the AR System Administration Console.
Select System > General > Server Information.
In the Server Information window, click the Advanced tab.
Change the value in the Maximum Filters for an Operation field to the original value, and then click OK.
The BMC Remedy AR System is installed with this value set to 200000.
