Arcserve's Brtrieve 7.0 DB is corrupted - How to repair?
Posted on 2003-12-04
This may or may not require some familiarity with ARCSERVE. I am using ARCSERVEIT 6.6 for backup on a Netware 5 server. It uses btrieve 7.0 to maintain its DB of backup jobs. I'm getting an error message 4205 in ARCSERVE that tells me the DB will not open due to integrity check failure. The KB at Computer Associates describes the process to recover the DB, but simply says, "Submit Recover ARCserve Database job from console". Unfortunately, I cannot find any reference in their KB as to how you do that.
In older versions, I used a BUTIL NLM that would repair or recover Btrieve 6.x files, but apparently that utility doesn't work with ver 7. If you know the correct procedure to repair a corrupted ver 7 file, I would greatly appreciate your help.
Thanks in advance.
