    Checked 8dot3:

    The volume state is : 1 <8dot3 name creation name is disabled>.

    The registry state is : 0 <Enable 8dot3 name creation on all volumes>.

    Based on the above two settings, 8dot3 name creation is enabled in e:

    Hi ganvi06,

     

    Could you check C:\Windows\paradigm.ini file if it is pointing to an appropriate SDM installation folder? It should shows:

     

    [PARADIGM]

    NX_ROOT=C:/PROGRA~2/CA/SERVIC~1

    NX_LOCAL=C:/PROGRA~2/CA/SERVIC~1

     

    Also, please run dir /x command and check if the folder "Program Files (x86)" has 8.3 file name.

     

    Thank you,

     

     

    Kaori

    I think something wrong with your environment variable, since pdm_load is executing dbload and most probably can't find it in E:\program. I would try to rewrite E:\Program Files (x86)\CA\Service Desk Manager\bin variable using 8dot3 names.

    Hi Vindhya,

     

    It looks 8.3 file name was not used when Service Desk was installed. Also, the "Program Files (x86)" folder does not have 8.3 file name. The dir command parameter "/x" shows both short and long file name. If "Program Files (x86)" has a short (8.3) file name, the short name, like "PROGRA~1" will be displayed as shown in the following screenshot. Had the "Program Files (x86)" folder been created by another application installation, such as SQL Client installation before you enabled the 8dot3name?

    Hi Vindhya,


    Normally, if you enable 8dot3name before SDM installation, and the SDM installation creates the folder, the 8.3 name should automatically be created for E:\Program Files (x86) folder. Had you installed something to E:\Program Files (x86) folder before you enabled 8dot3name? Had the E:\Program Files (x86) folder been created by SDM installation? For example, if you had installed the SQL Server agent to E:\Program Files (x86) folder before you had enabled 8dot3name, and then installed SDM to the same folder, the 8.3 name may not be created for E:\Program Files (x86) folder.


    Also did you restart OS after you enabled 8dot3name? If you enabled before the SDM installation, paradigm.ini should have shown "SERVIC~1" as a 8.3 name of Service Desk Manager folder even though E:\Program Files (x86) folder does not have 8.3 name for the above reason... When you run dir /x for Service Desk Manager folder, can you see 8.3 name?


    If E:\Program Files (x86) and Service Desk Manager folders do not have the 8.3 name, you need to uninstall and reinstall SDM.


    Kind regards,


    Kaori

    Hi,

    we had the same trouble a few days ago. As workaround we rebooted our Service Desk server to safe mode and added requested names using fsutil, for example: fsutil file setshortname "E:\Program Files (x86)" PROGRA~1

    When short names were added we changed paths in C:\Windows\paradigm.ini to use short names.  pdm_load and pdm_extract works correctly now.

    Regards,
