An SAP liveCache database is started using the Database Manager. The DBM Server executes the control file lcinit.bat with the option restart. In this case, the volumes are not formatted. The data is loaded from the data volumes into the SAP liveCache database. Among other things, the liveCache applications are also registered.


In accordance with the authorization concept, the user was assigned one of the roles SAP_BC_LVC_OPERATOR, SAP_BC_LVC_ADMINISTRATOR or SAP_BC_LVC_SUPERUSER.
