Title: Task History error
Post by presley on Feb 21st, 2014 at 2:04am
Hello Gert.  I think we did something on our end, this is most likely self-inflicted.  We recently did some security hardening of the Windows Server 2012 servers that WD is running on.  Now, when trying to look at event history, we get a database error.  Two different ones show depending on which WD process we are trying to view history on.  Does any specif port need to be open, or any thoughts?  Thank you!

Hello Jim,

It looks like the history.db file got corrupt. Please download: http://www.watchdirectory.net/img/forum/history.zip

Assuming your task is called "Hello"...
Stop the task
Select the menu "Tools -> Explore Task Directory" (opens explorer)
In explorer navigate to the subfolder "Hello" (the name of your task)
Inside this folder delete all files that have "history" in their name (one or more files)
Unzip the above empty history file.

Easy!  That corrected the error.

As always, thanks Gert!
