Oracle Communications Session Monitor - Version 3.x and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


1. There are orphaned tables (files starting with "#sql-") in the /var/lib/mysql/vsp/. To check this, run:


Recent system poweroff, cold/hard reset/reboot (which occurred while the database was in the process of making table changes)

Note: The OCOM should never be hard reset or powered off! Instead, reboot the server from the PSA at https://<YOUR_OCOM_IP>/setup/ - in the right top corner. (alternatively use the reboot command from shell interface)
