Note: The LMT database is in Test mode, the reinstall response file is trying to install in Production mode


As customer wanted to keep the original database, they were provided an SQL script ie.


by LMT L3 to convert a Test mode database to a Product database as it seems like the original install was done as Test mode, not Production.

Contact LMT support to get this script, or if the database is not needed, delete the TLMA database

so that it is newly created during the install of LMT 7.5.
