RDBPROD: How to Restore the connection between an Rdb Database and CDD when INTEGRATE does not do this (Doc ID 983302.1)

Last updated on APRIL 18, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle Rdb Server on OpenVMS - Version 7.0 to 7.2.5 [Release 7.0 to 7.2]
Oracle CDD/Repository - Version 7.0 to [Release 7.0 to 7.2]
HP OpenVMS Itanium
HP OpenVMS Alpha


When an Rdb database is integrated into the CDD, using record and field definitions in the CDD for the tables and domains, links are stored in both the CDD and the Rdb database.

Begin with 4 fields, F1, F2, F3 and F4, and a record R1 in the CDD. Create an Rdb database called RDBCDD, with 4 domains F1 - F4 using the fields F1 - F4 from the CDD, and a table R1 using the CDD record R1.

If maintenance of the Rdb database metadata is to be performed by changing the definition in the CDD, followed by an INTEGRATE with ALTER FILES to update the database, the links above must all be present in both the database and the CDD.

This article describes what can be done if some (or all) of these links between the database and the CDD are lost.
