In BMP mode, you have to start your IMS base to be able to view using file-aid.
Alternatively, you can use DLI mode to open your IMS bases when the DB is still stopped.

The IMS database should be started if you have to view data using FAI. Maybe there is an houskeeping application running which is preventing you from accessing the DB. What is the exact error that you get?

When you get it again, hit PF1 and please post that, rather longer/descriptive, message.
