[THIN] Re: IMA service won't start

Hi,

LHC and rmlocaldb corruption have been the major reasons for the IMA service
not starting in the sites I support. The standard fix if there's a problem
now is delete the RM local database, run lhcbak or dsmaint recreatelhc and
then restart the service. Almost always works.

Regards,

Rick

The fix was 
1. chfarm out to a new farm
2. run a dsmaint recreatelhc on the Datastore server..which I didn't think
had a local cache 3. chfarm back into existing farm

I tried this without step 2 and it didn't work..the fix really makes no
sense to me..can anyone shed some light? I didn't' think data store servers
had local host caches

If using Oracle as a back-end, I see this every time I install an additional
Oracle application.  The oracle installer pre-pends the path statement with
the path to the newly installed home.  I have to edit the path statement so
that the Oracle Client (mine is 8.1.6) path comes before any other Oracle
paths.  This happens because Oracle has similarly named DLL's for the
different applications, so the first DLL that it hits by searching the path
statement that has the correct name is executed.

I've tried running IMA with local admin, domain admin, checked registry
rights, repaired the localhost cache, checked the ODBC--nothing will allow
the service to start. Other servers in the farm are working fine

any ideas..this is a new server, so reinstalling metaframe is fine by me
unless there is a quicker fix?
