Rollbacks

A DMSII "rollback" is when the DMSII database is restored to an earlier point in time to correct a problem. While the DMSII database is being restored, replication stops. The Client must then be restarted for replication to resume.

If the Client has processed updates after the DMSII restore point, this replicated data will be wrong. Upon finding bad information in the stateinfo, the DATABridge Engine typically returns a message stating that a rollback has occurred. To resolve this problem, the relational database must also be rolled back (to the DMSII restore point or earlier).

If the Client hasn't processed updates after the DMSII restore point, no action is required. This can often be the case as the Client tends to lag behind the DMSII database by several audit files.
