Build a new, synchronized queue cache database.
Command Qualifiers Defaults None. None.
Requires sufficient privileges to create a file in the PMDF_TABLE: directory, and to scan the PMDF_QUEUE:[*] directories.
The CACHE/REBUILD utility creates a new, synchronized queue cache database. Although the new database will inherit the ownership and file protections of the previous database, it is a good idea to check afterwards that the new queue cache is owned by the same UIC as the
log.dirfiles in the
PMDF_ROOT:directory and that the file is protected against group and world access (S:RWED,O:RWED,G,W).
Rebuilding the queue cache database with this command should only be performed as a last resort, e.g., if disk problems have corrupted your queue cache database, as it will cause loss of some information from the queue cache database. (The sort of information lost includes, but is not limited to, message creation dates, message deferral dates, message expiration dates, and the original message owner information used by the PMDF QM utility to allow users to bounce their own messages.)
The command PMDF CACHE/CLOSE should be issued immediately after building the new queue cache so as to ensure that any detached processes close any I/O channels to the old database and open new channels to the new database.
The queue cache database is the file pointed at by the PMDF_QUEUE_CACHE_DATABASE logical. Normally, this is the file
PMDF_TABLE:directory. This file should be protected against world and group access and be owned by the same UIC as the directory files
To build a new queue cache database issue the commands
$ PMDF CACHE/REBUILD $ PMDF CACHE/CLOSE $ ! wait a minute or two $ PMDF CACHE/SYNCH
