This document will familiarize you with the process behind resetting your installation of the Field2Base Enterprise Dispatch Module (EDM).
**What circumstances would require a customer to reset their EDM?
Understanding an Integration Suite Reset
Resetting the EDM returns the application to the initial state it was in upon installation. Resetting clears all of the recorded Logs and deletes all items from the Queue allowing the user to start from scratch without resetting any of their already designed EDM Projects.
Since the EDM loads the Queue with dispatches from external CSV or SQL files, there is no further action required with the EDM Project Files after a reset.
Backing Up your EDM Files
As a standard practice, when resetting the EDM, Field2Base recommends you back up your EDM Database Files before replacing them in case there is an error during the reset.
The files you should back up are found in the F2B Enterprise Dispatch Module folder commonly found in C:\Program Files (x86)\F2B Enterprise Dispatch Module. These include the following files:
Resetting the EDM
The following steps allow you to reset the EDM.

- Download blank DIM Database Files from here: Blank EDM Database Files or the zip file at EDM Blank Database Files
- Extract and Save the SDF Files to the EDM Program Files folder.
- Overwrite the existing files when prompted.
