Issue with database Index file

2815436 7 hours ago (Show less)

Hi Gurus, i am looking for some help over here,

I had a problem with my Planning Application, log indicates that there was a problem during
a Refresh.
2 of my 3 databases of the Application are working fine. The one that is down cant start and
show the following message when trying to start on EAS:

Error: 1002097 Unable to load database [DatabaseName]

When i try to check the .ind and .pag files, the .ind file seems to be corrupt or broken, mainly
because it's a very small file compared with my other 2 databases' ind. files. However the
.pag file seems to be correct.

I dont have a recent backup available for my .ind and .pag files, my main need is to get this
app back running only with the .pag file or try to fix the .ind file corrupted.

Help is greatly appreciated.

I would not judge the corruption based on the size of the ind or pag files as those are based on
number of sparse members in the outline (.ind) and the amount of data loaded (.pag). Have
you looked at the application log? Right click on the application name in EAS and select
View->Log. select today and scroll to the bottom and start looking backward for the startup
of the app. It might give you a clue to what is broken.

But in answer to your more general question, no you can't restore this based on the pag file

As Glenn suggested, Log file may give some more information.

I remember facing something similar way back in and it was the db file which got
corrupted. Application would not load and It was getting logged. So, I just replaced it with
dbb file which is a backup of database file and everything was fine after that.

No, you can't restore with just the .pag file.

I wouldn't fixate on the .ind file being corrupted based on size alone, unless you know it's
much smaller than before or ridiculously small (like a couple of K). .ind files vary naturally
as a consequence of metadata and data.

Hi, thanks for info, here is an extract from the log that seems to show the issue:

Essbase needs to retrieve [1] Essbase Kernel blocks in order
to calculate the top dynamically-calculated block.
