    Alert Central Configuration corrupt




      Hi all


      I found the Alert Central was not performing after serveal force reboot in VMware

      The AD authorize function was not working, and I found that there is error during boot up screen as attached

      The configuration file is corrupt, I have no clue how to fix that


      This morning, I found 50,000+ email generate by the alert central regarding fail to sent out email (or receive email)

      I have no choice but to shut it down


      I guess the best solution for now is to export the A.C. database and reinstall a new one

      Any one has idea how to do that?


      Thanks and Best Regards
