This is going to be a quick blog.
So sometimes in IMC when you are first getting things up and running, people make the mistake of leaving their alarms for too long. Or they just alarm on everything and don’t filter out unnecessary alarms. I’ve actually seen one customer who had over 40,000 current alarms in their system.
Even at 200 alarm a page, that’s a lot of clicks to acknowledge/recover them all.
So the question has come up: How do I do a Mass Recover on all current alarms. It perhaps would be nice for a big red button,
but instead you’re going to have to follow the following procedure from the servers console ( not the web interface ).
1. Stop imc OR just stop imcfaultdm.exe in DMA
2. Access “IMC_DIR\server\bin” from the command prompt – ( most likely c:\program files\imc\server\bin)
3. Run “start_env.bat”
4. Run “imcfaultdm.exe -clean”
5. Start imc OR just start imcfaultdm.exe in DMA
note – make sure you run this from a DOS (cmd.exe) window or it won’t work. ( windows environmental path variables )
That’s it. It’s not a big red button. But it works.
