The PowerPM database consists of seven files. It is a static size and occasionally will need to be expanded. When the database gets down to 10% you will get a message each time PowerPM is launched. When it gets down to 5% it will lock you out.
NOTE: The TDBADM.EXE utility must be run from a 32-bit OS computer. If none are available see the doc Expanding a Database (64-bit).
1. BACKUP FIRST (with everyone out of the software)
2. If Multi-user, bring down CLIDA1 database server, TDESRV or stop the Titanium service.
3. Then get to the PMD dos prompt, or PMD folder in Windows Explorer
4. Rename powerpm.exe powerpm2.exe (optional security measure to make sure everyone is out and don’t get back in before we’re ready for them to be)
5. Dir clida*.db (note the size of each file to make sure all the same)
6. At dos prompt type in tdbadm, or from explorer double click on tdbadm.exe
User name DUSER all caps
Password DPASS all caps
7. At the TDBADM Options menu choose Area Management
8. At the next menu choose Modify Area Size
Area Name clida1
Number of pages in file 1173 (# will vary, used as example)
(Unscientific math equation at this point, take 1/3 of the number of pages listed and add it to them, in this case 1/3 of 1173 is 391, I just round it up to 400, so the number of pages is 1573, type that # over 1173, press enter.)
9. You’ll see a green bar flash sort of quickly saying modifying area size, then it will bring you back to database name prompt. Continue thru each of the databases, clida2 thru clida7, for example:
Area Name clida2
Number of pages in file 1573
10. After all 7 areas have been expanded, then press the escape key a few times to get back to dos prompt or to windows explorer.
11. Dir clida*.db or scroll to the *.DB files (to confirm that all db’s are the same size)
12. If PowerPM.exe was renamed above, rename it back.
13. If multi-user, restart TDESRV or start the Titanium service.
