Erase the AyaNova database

 

Important:

 

When you run the AyaNovaSetup.exe file, the AyaNova program files are installed AND a sample database with sample data already entered so your trial of AyaNova is not just a blank slate, and you can get an overview of how to use by reviewing the data already entered along with the information and tutorials in the manual.

 

We strongly recommend that you keep that sample data while first familiarizing yourself with AyaNova as you follow along with the tutorials

 

Only a licensed AyaNova database can be erased - either purchase your subscription licensing via our Purchase web page, or request a full 30 day temporary trial key code

 

The following are not erased:

Existing licenses - any Activation Key licenses previously applied are maintained in the database

Global Settings

Default AyaNova Administrator user - login username and password are not changed from when the Erase steps are performed

Default AyaNova Administrator security group

Tax Codes

Regions

Default warehouse

Localized Text - any custom locales will not be lost when you erase

Existing report templates - any changes or customizations you made will still be there after you erase

Workorder starting number will be +1 of last entered workorder number

 

 

 

Once you have followed along with the tutorials and familiarized yourself with every feature using the sample data,  and now are ready to wipe the sample data and get started, perform the following steps to erase:

 

 

1.Check to see if your AyaNova is registered or not by selecting the menu menu Help -> License. If your license shows "Unregistered trial" than you can not erase the sample data

2.If you would like to fully unlock AyaNova so you can erase, do either request a temporary 30 day key for AyaNova or purchase AyaNova licenses. You will be emailed an Activation Key with instructions to apply.

 

3.Ensure all users, including yourself are not logged into AyaNova or accessing the AyaNova database in any way.

 

4.Be physically at the same computer where the AyaNova database resides: Do not be logged into the computer via remote access

 

5.Log into AyaNova as the AyaNova Administrator

 

Default username is manager with password letmein if you have not yet changed it

You can not erase the database as any other user, even a user who is a member of the AyaNova Administrators group

This is also why strongly recommend you edit the default username and password of the AyaNova Administrator once you have licensed AyaNova to protect your database from accidental or malicious acts

 

6. Select the menu option Help -> License from the main menu bar

7. Select the menu option Erase Entire AyaNova Database

 

8. Select YES to proceed if this is what you wish

 

9. Allow the process to complete without interruption. AyaNova will close

 

10. Run AyaNova again, and log in as the AyaNova Administrator

 

11. You will now want to enter Global Settings, part warehouses, dispatch zones, security groups, users, rates, contracts, clients, unit models, units and other objects that you will use in AyaNova - review the Suggested Order of Setting Up AyaNova Once Licensed.

 

Your first workorder number will default to +1 of the last workorder number before you deleted the database. It is not possible to restart at number 1 even though all data is deleted.
