How to perform a consistency check?

Hi All,


There is a mailfile on our server which I cannot open because I get the error message that a consistency check is needed. I tried to compact and fixup it but the same error message appears. I selected the cluster in the Administrator and then selected 'in service' but it didn't help. Can you tell me the steps for a consistency check?

Thanks,

Proably some corrupt view indexes could also enforce this error

So try this command at console

Load UPDALL dbname -R

Hi All,

I tried both of the commands and unfortunately this is the answer:

load fixup -F /data/mal1/xxx.nsf
database fixup process started
DbMarkCorrupt(Both BDB copies are corrupt), DB=/data/mal1/xxx.nsf TID=[19890:00002-00001]
Unable to fixup database
/data/mal1/xxx.nsf Invalid NSF version
Database fixup process shutdown

Do you have any idea?

Thanks,

Invalid NSF version says that you have different ODS structure Like R6 and your are trying to use db tools from R5. Make sure you revert the ods struct. using compact -R option.

Of course, if it is an ODS problem, you will have to take the database file to a workstation or server that SUPPORTS the new ODS (6.5) in order to revert to the earlier ODS.

But, Invalid NSF version can also appear if the file is simply corrupt, and you will have to toss it in that case.

A new TA has been added to EE: Lotus Domino Admin (http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/Lotus_Domino_Admin/).

Since it's still rather empty we're looking for content for this TA. This should offer visitors a better chanche of finding answers to their questions.

This question, though not posted in a wrong TA, was a typical Lotus Domino Admin question. Therefore I'm moving it from Lotus Notes/Domino TA to Lotus Domino Admin TA.

In addition to this question, would anyone know how long it would take to run fixup on a 10Gb database?

It depends..I know you don't want to hear that ;-)

Compacting process considers binary and non-binary info to compress. So if you have attachements, images kind of stuff that can delay the compaction..

For 10GB it should really take a good amount of time. Not sure, in my days we were limited to 4GB only
