EMC IONIX \ SMARTS Clean Topology of Stuck Events

Ever have that problem where events get stuck in SAM?  Want to clear all the devices from IP and start fresh?  You could just delete the RPS files and let them regenerate, but then you lose all your settings too.

Start your services with "--clean-topology" and it will clear all the junk and keep the settings.

Command Line:

1.) Stop the service in question.

2.) Start the service from the command line:  In Windows copy the start string from the services properties tab and paste it into CMD.   Before the "output" at the end of the line insert "--clean-topology". 

3.) Once it is fully up, stop the service again and restart it via services console.



1.) Stop the service in question.

2.) Edit HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\<service name>\ImagePath and add “--clean-topology” before the "output" at the end of the line.

3.) Start the service.

4.) Remove the "--clean-topology" from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\<service name>\ImagePath.  (This will prevent the topology from being wiped again during the next restart.  If you want a fresh start every time, leave it.)
