How to recover caliber from server crash?

I have Calibre2008 installed in a windows server 2003. But yesterday, the server crashed for hard disk failure. Fortunately, partition for Caliber server is still OK. I tried to simply copy it to another server but it reports unauthorized access. I can not find any backup of the database.

Is there any guide to recover it?

RE: How to recover caliber from server crash?

Hi
As the DB was in use when the server error happened there are transaction waiting to be applied to the database. If the DB can be started then the DB should recover to the last check point.

Could you please confirm that the user on the new server is the same as the old server?

Could you also confirm if you can log a case?

Thanks

RE: How to recover caliber from server crash?

Hi David,

I copy the DB to a new machine and run "dbmgr -upgrade", now I can see all users in the new server. But when I try to logon, it reports "no available license". I think it become a license problem. Unfortunately, I can't find its serial number. We try to find some help from Microfocus.
However thank you very much.
