proutil idxbuild (10.2B vs 11.7.3)

This question is not answered

Our databases are offline backed up on a Saturday (the rest of the week they are online backed up) so I take the opportunity to also perform an idxbuild for inactive indexes if I have added any online (inactive) during the week.

The command line that I run is

proutil mydb -C idxbuild inactiveindexes -TB 24 -TM 32 -B 1000 -SG 64 -T /work/temp

I then check the return status of the command to decide if I have to raise an alert with the out of hours team or not (this check is done on all of the commands I issue over the weekend, proshut, proserve, probkup etc.)

Everything worked well when we were at v10.2B, the proutil command line would run and regardless if there were indexes to activate or not, the return status would be zero (unless there was an error)...

The BI file is being automatically truncated. (1526)

Index Rebuild Utility

No indexes being rebuilt. (2783)
proenv>echo $?
0

Now we are at 11.7.3 when I run the same command line the return status is 2, and it also reports that it was not successful...

Index Rebuild Utility
=====================

No index was found. (16274)
Index rebuild did not complete successfully
proenv>echo $?
2

Is this a deliberate change in functionality?  Is there a way for me to revert it back?  I am considering now having to write something to scan for inactive indexes before I attempt to activate them, which I would prefer not to do.

  • Since you have 11.7.3 could you try to add indexes online instead of offline idxbuild?

    Set up a new db startup parameter

    -usernotifytime 600

    and use

    proutil db-name -C idxactivate table-name.index-name -recs n
