  2. Run DLM CLI for dynamic link review
Action Plan

Perform the below actions (Relevant input is needed)

  1. This error is normally the result of an invalid management profile in the management profile list that is used by the DLM CLI. Validating that all profiles are valid and removing invalid ones should resolve this issue. Even if your DLM CLI is not referencing the specific invalid entry, it will still result in this error. To validate the profiles:
    1. Start the CAST Management Studio interface
    2. Validate each profile in the list on starting up
  2. Remove items from the list which are no longer operational or valid. For assistance on connection profile management for CAST Management Studio, please see the documentation. For 8.2, see the documentation here: Manage CAST Management Studio Connections 
  3. If still having issues, contact technical support with the relevant input requested.

For reference, the file where the connections are stored is located here: %appdata%\CAST\CAST\<version>\cast-ms.connectionProfiles.pmx 

Relevant input

  • CAST Support Tool (CST) - alias Sherlock. Option to select are : Export CAST Bases, Export log files
  • Exact command line run and associated DLM XML files
  • The file %appdata%\CAST\CAST\<version>\cast-ms.connectionProfiles.pmx
