Hi Leslie & All,
We store our datas in MS Access, this can be optionally choosed under NT.
(The other way would be MS SQL db)
So, the *.mdb files are placed in /ov/databases/odbc.
There are 3 mdb files: tess_db, snmpcollect_db and topo2sql_db.
In the file tess_db are many tables such like the events and a lot of other
The topo2sql file has three empty tables.
I think the measured parameters must be stored in the third snmpcollect
file, which is a big one and frequently refreshed.
The problem is, that I'm not able to open this file with MS-Access.
I tried it as local and domain admin and with the local NetView account to.
The netview service was stopped and no other users were connected so the
file was 100% closed. Access says I don't have the rights to open or convert
this file. But I can open and convert etc. the 2 other files.
Has anybody an idea, how to resolve this problem?
I didn't found anything in the docs.
Thanks for help, Zoltan
