Mass delete error messages

Created: 30 Apr 2013 | 1 comment

When sorting though error messages in Puredisk, we have 33,611 critical error messages. the error itself has been resolved, but I would like to remove these messages. Does anyone know a way to mass delete these? Right now I can only remove them 20 or so at a time and that will take 1500  instances of me deleting and confirming.

Stan,

You should be able to clear these errors out of the CA database in bulk using the following technote:

http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH154710 - A problematic restore caused Puredisk to log almost 19000 Alerts and Errors

Just plug the error you are receiving in the SPA GUI into the commands within the technote if it differs. For example: # /opt/pddb/bin/psql -U pddb ca -c "select * from event where description LIKE '%Copy and paste the error you are receiving in the SPA GUI here%'"

I hope this helps in resolving your issue.
