Steps to execute the cleanup script

  1. Stop the VigilEnt Policy Center services

VPC 5.6 service pack 2 includes a SQL database cleanup script to ensure that all existing users have the documents that they have read correctly assigned to them in the VigilEnt Policy Center database. This script is saved to the VigilEnt Policy Center computer when you install the service pack, but is not automatically executed. If you have a small database or the documents in your database are already correctly assigned to users, the script will take a short time to execute. However, if your database is large or there are users in your database that do not have the correct documents assigned to them, the script could take up to two hours to execute. You should first install the service pack and then run the script at night or another convenient time when users do not need access to VigilEnt Policy Center. For more information about running the database cleanup script, see Installing This Service Pack. (ENG303729)
