How to Manually Delete a storage location in DLO Database

This question is continued from another discussion that has been locked:

Hey Dev T, (or anyone)

I was wondering if I could pick your brain further.  I have a server name and storage location stuck in DLO.  It cannot be deleted because we got rid of the server and the domain it was in.  We forgot that we had a share location in DLO on that server.  So we didn't delete things in the correct order I suppose.  Now, when I right click on that storage location and hit delete, it dosen't do anything. and I can't delete the server until that storage location is gone.

Is there a way to manually delete that storage location using the osql command?

Thanks for your time,

Run the following commands in the command prompt on the Backup Exec server to delete the storage location.

osql -E -S %servername%\bkupexec -d BE_DLO

1> delete from share where sharename = 'DLOTest'

2> go

BE_DLO is the default name of the DLO database.
DLO Test is the name of the storage location.

This should fix it

Hey RahulG,

Thanks for the response.  I proceeded to try out your soulution but the server was not deleted.  Even thought he command seemed to execute with no errors.  I says 0 rows affected and the server still shos in DLO.  Any ideas?

Thanks for your help.

Take a backup of your DLO database !st
Load the Dlo databse in SQL admin console .
Then you would nees to Change the userSharepath and the usershare ID manully in the database ..
Would suggest you to contact your SQL administrator or probably open a case with Support .
