How To: Troubleshoot DriveWorks Group Issues

This article discusses issues relating to opening or creating a DriveWorks Group.

Troubleshoot Group Issues - Opening a group

In some cases the following error message is displayed when an existing group is opened

Possible causes of this message include:

  • Group is locked (Individual Group)

    A lock file is created when the Group is open and removed once the Group is closed. It could remain if the application closes unexpectedly.

    Browse to the location of the Individual Group and delete the lock file.

    The lock file is in the following format:

    <GroupName>.~drivegrou

    Ensure this file is deleted and NOT the actual Group file, which is in the following format:

    <GroupName>.drivegroup

  • Folder Permissions (Individual Group)

    Ensure you have the correct permissions (read and write permissions) to the path where the group is stored.

  • Login credentials

    Ensure the correct user name and password were supplied to log onto the group.

  • Later Version Group

    The Group was created in a later version of DriveWorks.

    Ensure the DriveWorks product version matches the version the Group was created in.

  • SQL Server may not be Running

    You can check this in either Windows Services or SQL Configurations Manager.
