Limitations:

  • You do not require Cyclone Navigator View to be open when you run this command. Cyclone Navigator View is open when you launch the Cyclone program. Some functions can develop database lock contentions when Navigator view tries to respond to changes such as adding or removing multiple databases.

  • If you try to delete a database from Cyclone Navigator view, make sure that CloudWorx is not currently opening a ModelSpace view that belongs to the database.

  • You cannot delete a database from CloudWorx when you have a ModelSpace view open.
