When restarting the database (Customer.db) an error occurs. It looks for the (Customer.log) file (which was deleted).  How can I restart the database without the log file?  Can I create a generic log file and place it on the server? Is there some command line switch I can use to restart the database a different way? Looking for a step by step checklist to restart the database.

If you delete the log, you can force the engine to start without a log using the -f parameter to dbeng50.  ie,

dbeng50 -f customer.db

This will start customer.db and allow a new log to be created when needed.  If this database is part of a replication setup, this will break replication.

>dbeng50 -f customer.db

If it does not work try undocumented key
dbeng50 -o ...
or
remove transaction log
     dblog -n customer.db
and start the database.
