CW RME backup problem


I'm having problem with RME database backup. In dbbackup.log message is as follows:


E:/CSCOpx\bin\tar.exe: Removing drive spec from names in the archive

Backing up database cmfDb:Backing up database aniDb:Backing up database rmeDb:Run time SQL error -- Index XIE2SLG_MSG has invalid or duplicate index entries

Validation E:/CSCOBackup/database\951\rme\database\rme.db failed.

Backup completed: 2006/09/05 02:35:40


I succeeded to overcome this problem running backup on demand once I noticed this problem. Next scheduled backup worked correctly after this action. But now problem is more persisting.

I tried to run dbvalid utility:


dbeng7 -c 16M -n rmeEng E:\CSCOpx\databases\rme\rme.db -n rme

dbvalid -c "uid=dba;pwd=XXX;eng=rmeEng;dbn=rme"

Adaptive Server Anywhere Validation Utility Version

No errors reported


The same situation is if I use "dbvalid -fi" (No errors reported).

Does anyone know what could be a reason and how to overcome this problem?

Re: CW RME backup problem

There have been some issues with live backups that we are only now beginning to understand. For the most reliable backup possible, you should shutdown dmgtd, and then run the backup. We hope to address some of these problems in LMS 3.0 due out next year.
