Attempts to change a participant name fails and results in a hang at the status message "Accruing Referring Items" in IBM Rational System Architect (SA).
When you try to change the name of a participant you will notice:
- The participant does not get renamed.
- SA is hung.
- You see in the status bar the message:
Accruing Referring Items
- You may see in a "
Verify Only" window errors similar to the following:
Error: Invalid Entity
This can be caused by corrupt referred entries in an encyclopedia as described in the results of a verify command on the encyclopedia.
Diagnosing the problem
To confirm the problem in the encyclopedia you can Run a "
Verify Only" on the encyclopedia:
From the SA menu bar select "
Tools > Verify Encyclopedia > Verify Only" and analyse the information that should be displayed in the "
Verify Only" window.
Resolving the problem
- Ensure that you are the database owner (
db_owner) of the encyclopedia.
- Run a "
Verify and Repair" on the encyclopedia. From the SA menu bar, select "
Tools > Verify Encyclopedia > Verify and Repair".
- Try the participant rename.
