Challenge

You may see the following error while opening nworks UI:

"Index was outside the bounds of the array"

Cause

The maindb.xml file is corrupted for some reason.

Solution

It is necessary to remove the "maindb.xml" file in the following way: 

  1. Locate and backup file "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\nworks\Management Center\maindb.xml" (for Win 2008 the location is "C:\ProgramData\nworks\Management Center”)

  2. Stop nworks Enterprise Manager (Management Center) service

  3. Delete file "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\nworks\Management Center\maindb.xml" (for Win 2008 the location is "C:\ProgramData\nworks\Management Center”)

  4. Start nworks Enterprise Manager (Management Center) service 

Once the service is started again, "maindb.xml" will be re-created. 

NOTE: Removing maindb.xml file removes all the vCenter connection configuration, each VEM server advanced property customization and VEM server ESX cluster assignments.
