Re-integrating an Rdb database using definitions from CDD (INTEGRATE with ALTER FILES) may result in the loss of some definitions in the database and possible data loss. Metadata, such as tables, indexes, and views, defined in the database while attached by filename rather than pathname could disappear, as well as the data in such a table. Errors during the integrate can also cause loss of metadata.
1. Tables and views
3. Indexes used in storage maps
1. Tables and views.
Define a new table and a view on a table that is fully integrated in the CDD and the database while attached by filename rather than pathname. After defining the view, perform an INTEGRATE... ALTER FILES. The view no longer exists in the database.
