Run Fix Programs

Use this procedure to run fix programs for your M3 BE environment.


It is important that this task is executed each time after you have applied a feature pack for standard and or for markets. Also in cases where not much data exists in the database the task needs to be run to set the correct status for all fix programs in the M3 BE program (CMS950).


The run fix programs task is only applicable for environments running M3 Foundation or newer versions and when applying feature pack 3 (M3 BE 15.1.3) or newer versions.

To run fix programs:

  1. Right-click the environment and select Fixes > Run Fix Programs. The window Run Fix Programs is displayed.

    You can also open the task by clicking Run Fix Programs on the Dashboard tab Fixes.

  2. The Start Environment in restricted mode information dialog is displayed. This means that the environment will be shutdown and when re-started in restricted mode, only the LCM Client can run M3 Business Engine jobs. An M3 BE user cannot login to an M3 UI or run M3 BE programs during the time it takes to run this task.

    Do not perform any other tasks that affect this M3 Business Engine environment while running Run Fix programs.

    When the task is finished the environment status is changed to running mode. Click Next.

  3. Provide information in these fields:
    M3 user:

    Specify a M3 BE user


    The M3 BE user specified must be a user that is enabled to run at least one company/division for each available system configuration that exists for this specific environment (Update User in MNS150).

    M3 user password:

    Specify the password.

    Click Next.

  4. On the Summary screen, verify the property values and click Finish.
  5. When the task is finished, a dialog is displayed. Click OK. To view the log file, either click View log, or go to the Logs view.

    Status of fix programs can be viewed in the M3 BE program CMS950.


    Some fix programs are delivered in status 03 (=optional) and will not be run when running the task 'Run Fix Programs' from LifeCycle Manager. These fix programs are delivered in status optional since they are not required to be run immediately after an upgrade. They can be scheduled to be run during a weekend or in a nightly run. More information regarding the new fix program handling can be found in the NCR for M3 BE 15.1.3.
