  • 26112 = 0x6600

    Normal values are a power of 2 - from 0 to 32.

    Normal master block:

    0020 mb_tainted:           0x0000             0
         mb_flags:             0x6600             26112  DBVSTS_UPDATEDDBSEQ64_ENABLEDDBREDO_CLEANDBSKIP_RECOVER

    You got mb_flags instead of mb_tainted

  • The VST field reports 26112. I'll see if I can run your script against the DB. It's a Windows DB so I may need to get creative.

  • Paul, it's better, IMHO, to run dbrpr. Just copy db. At least dbname.d1 file.
