  1. 1. Sheila Smith Armor ASAT Program Manager Excellence in Training, Doctrine, and Combat Development
  2. 2. Preventing Global Lock Outs <ul><li>Two Types of global lock outs </li></ul><ul><li>1. Every local user in your database is inactive. </li></ul><ul><li>2. Your database takes on another schools identity. </li></ul><ul><li>What causes these global lock outs? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Directly importing information from another school into our working database– the sharing of information. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The Armor School prevents global lock out by: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Never importing directly into the working database. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Removing all users except the ASAT System Administrator and the Reviewer from the transfer database prior to importing the information into our working database. </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. School Identity Theft <ul><li>The Armor School utilized Infomaker to recover our identity; change the school codes back to Armor. </li></ul>
  4. 4. School Identity Theft continued Sample of the Armor Schools database site id information from Infomaker   0     N     71 171 N 180     Y 3/29/2005 4.44 17 171 req chg history text cd pswd chg period last month-ly dt last daily dt remote database version dt version product propon-ent school
  5. 5. School Identity Theft <ul><li>Or you can use the “isql.exe” method. However, my recommendation for a lock out that is associated with school identity theft is to contact: </li></ul><ul><li>ATSC ASAT Manager, Elaine Tarr </li></ul><ul><li>( 757) 878- 4762, Ext 7044 DSN: 826- 4762, Ext 7044 FAX: (757) 878-4140 [email_address] </li></ul>continued
  6. 6. Armor School Import Steps <ul><li>Take the transfer database (from another school or contractor) that was created using the steps Elaine presented earlier, and connect to it to review the data. </li></ul><ul><li>Since ASAT defaults to your working database, to connect to your transfer database on the power panel select File, attach to other databases. In my example below, I have created a “TOMA” profile. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Armor School Import Steps continued <ul><li>Logon to the transfer database as the Administrator (use id: admin and password: asat). </li></ul><ul><li>When prompted to change the password, change the password. </li></ul><ul><li>Select “System Admin” on the ASAT Power Panel. Select “ASAT User Administration”. </li></ul><ul><li>Filter by clicking “All”. This will bring up the ASAT User Maintenance Screen with every user </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>At the User Maintenance Screen, remove all users except the ASAT System Administrator and Reviewer by: </li></ul><ul><li>-- From the file menu, select data then “select/deselect record” (the record will turn blue when selected). Then select data delete record. You can delete several records at a time by holding the shift key and clicking on records. </li></ul>Armor School Import Steps continued

  10. 10. Benefits of utilizing a transfer database <ul><li>It prevents your active users from becoming inactive (locked out) </li></ul><ul><li>It prevents your working database from taking on another schools identity/school codes. NOTE: If your database takes on another school’s identity every user including your administrators and any administrative back doors will be disabled. </li></ul><ul><li>If the information you are importing is corrupt you will not corrupt your active database. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Benefits of utilizing a transfer database <ul><li>You are able to choose specific items you want to import into your working database. </li></ul><ul><li>You are able to remove outdated facilities, products, TADSS, and other items that appear under the support tab. </li></ul>continued
