I've run prorest on 9 of 11 DB's that need to be restored. For the remaining 2 I receive the following messages on the first and second tries:
1)Start of extending target DB to needed size... (9432)
Unable to extend data files enough to proceed. (6743)Restore failed. (1618)!!! ERROR - Database restore utility FAILED !!! (8564)
2)Corrupt block detected when reading from database. (4229)
SYSTEM ERROR: Wrong dbkey in block. Found 0, should be 13312 in area 6. (1124)** Save file named core for analysis by Progress Software Corporation. (439)Quit
Just wondering if anyone encountered this error and what you did to run prorest successfully.
the first error is probably caused by the restore trying to put all the data into a single variable extent that is limited to 2 GB. it can be cured by creating a suitable .st file for the database.
need more info on the circumstances of the second error.
Alternatively you can enable large files if it's an Enterprise license. You should be able to enable large files and then run the restore again.
_proutil <dbname> -C enablelargefiles
the second error is just when I try running prorest again.
You need to fix the first error to fix the second error then :)
Gus..That is where I'm a little confused. I've noticed that when I've done the other restores an .st file is created. Would I create a .st file then run prorest again?
It would be helpful if you provided the st file and an ls -l or dir listing of the files for that database.
It could be the large file problem or you could have entries in your st file that point to bad locations and/or running out of space.
