Run "Synchronize Database Tables" after an updatePermanent link for this heading

Last update: 4 August 2017

SummaryPermanent link for this heading

After a Fabasoft Folio / Fabasoft eGov-Suite update, the Fabasoft Server management may display a warning " Database synchronization required for COO-Service ... " during the start of a service. These warnings are also written to the event log / system log of the backend servers.

In that case, synchronizing database tables is absolutely necessary.

Important: Ignoring this warning after an update can lead to data inconsistency.

After an update, pay additional attention to the backendserver event logs / system logs.

See the section Information for further details.

InformationPermanent link for this heading

During the Fabasoft Folio update procedure, so-called Upgrade Definitions (also known as "CSV migration") is performed against the database. This migration process is used for example to change object classes, attributes and move property values (see the Information section of article Incompatible type 8 for further details about Upgrade Definitions).

After such changes the database configuration needs to be synchronized in some cases. The Fabasoft Folio COO-Service will warn the administrator if this is the case.

SolutionPermanent link for this heading

After your successful Fabasoft Folio / Fabasoft eGov-Suite update, restart all Fabasoft Folio backend services. Wait some minutes until the domain configuration thread of the Fabasoft Folio COO-Services has finished.

If the warning ( Database synchronization required for COO-Service ... ) appears, or if you can find it in the application event logs (Windows) / system logs (Linux) on one of the backend servers, perform the following steps:

  • Shut down your kernel instances (web services, conversion services, AT, etcetera).
  • In the Fabasoft Folio Server Managment on the backend server, navigate to Domains / .
  • Right-click the Fabasoft Folio COO-Service which raised the warning and select All Tasks / Synchronize Database Tables .
  • Your service will restart and synchronize the updated object model to the database. This step may take some time.
  • Repeat the steps for all Fabasoft Folio COO-Services, which raised the warning (it is also possible to perform the task in the Fabasoft Folio Server Management for the whole domain).
  • After the synchronization has finished, check the event log / system log again. If the message is thrown again, retry the steps above.
  • If the event log / system log message is still thrown, please contact Fabasoft Support for assistance.
