How to recover management server CMDB object if accidentaly deleted? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi!

    I have accidently force deleted all windows computers from CMDB including management server object, which, apparently , stores information about which computer executes workflows. Now all workflows fail.

    Is there any chance to recreate the object somehow to make Health service work again?

  • Hi,

    If you have force the deletion you can't use the "Deleted items" in administration pane ...

    You can check this : http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh495516.aspx

    For me the solution is to restore the database :

    Service Manager Databases

    Recovery procedures are the same for both the Service Manager database and the data warehouse database. You use a computer with the same name, and then you restore the Microsoft SQL Server databases using the same instance as the original. Recovery of a Service Manager database and a data warehouse database involves the following procedures:

    1. Start with a new computer with the same computer name and with the same SQL Server instance as the computer that failed.
    2. Restore the SQL Server database or databases using the same instance name as the original. For more information, see Database Recovery in Service Manager in this guide.
