CMRun error
Hello everyone,

Just wondering if anyone of you can help me out. I have a data migrator procedure where I want to initiate from the dos cmd using the CMRUN function, but when I try to run the CMRUN function, I get the following message:

An EDACONNECT error occurred
EDACONNECT returns Error -7, Cannot initialize EADLINK

I searched everywhere and I even make sure that my data migrator service is running.

Any clues??

Does the data migrator procedure run when executed from the DMC? Please post the code you're using with CMRUN.

Data Migrator 5.3, 7.1, 7.6
WebFOCUS 7.1, 7.6, 7.7
SQL Server, Oracle, DB2

EDALINK is the original name for the iWay client software, which CMRUN can't find without some help. Before calling CMRUN issue the following commands, substituting the locatoin where you have installed the client or server software.

SET EDAHOME=C:\ibi\srv76\home
SET EDACONF=C:\ibi\srv76\dm
SET EDACS3=C:\ibi\srv76\dm\etc\odin.cfg

Hi Cliff,

yes, that's what I was missing in my bat file. It works now.
