Cant find database in database list - Actdiag

Hi!

 

I'm trying to find out if a member of staff has made a database backup or export from an administrators PC whilst the Adminstrator was away from their desk.

I desperately need to see the Audit Logs!! However all it will let me select is a Demo database from the drop down menu!

 

Please help Smiley Very Happy

ACTDIAG will only show you the databases that are on the machine you open it and attached to the SQL engine.

If the database is on a server, you have to run it there

The machine it is on doesnt not seem to have ACT DIAG.

 

We have two laptops with it on. One uses the other to reference the database files.

 

The laptop with the database files on does not seem to have ACTDIAG, whereas the other laptop does....

The machine with the database is on must have ACT! ... and therefore must have ACTDIAG

And you checked the Program Files folder?

If it's not there, then you have a damaged installation and need to reinstall

Hmmm just to clarify, will the ACTDIAG utility be on every machine that has SAGE installed on it? Or just the main machine?

Thanks

It is on every machine ... it can't only see the databases that are on the machine that you're running it
