Error (C04F): Block checksum error

Hi,

since 2014 R2 we had a damaged secondary domain (MTA + GWIA for IMAP/POP3)
database two times within a few days. It was not possible to repair/rebuild
the database.

gwia:~ # gwadminutil validate <path-to-database>
Error (C04F): Block checksum error

gwia:~ # gwadminutil recover <path-to-database>
Error (C04F): Block checksum error

gwia:~ # gwadminutil rebuild -d <path-to-database> -o /<path-to-database> -n
dom-gwia
Error: javax.naming.ServiceUnavailableException: Failed trying to open the
domain.

gwia:~ # gwadminutil rebuild -d <path-to-database> -o dom-gwia.tmp/ -n dom-
gwia
Error: javax.naming.ServiceUnavailableException: Failed trying to open the
domain.

I had to restore an old version of the database an then do a rebuild.

My first question: Apparently a rebuild needs a working target database?
Does not make much sense for me - does it?

Second question: Any idea what the reason for that repeatedly damaged
database might be?

Thanks,
Mirko

Hmm. Did you consider that all those issues you face might have a common
reason, and possibly external from Groupwise? Maybe some hardware failing?

Completely different hardware: "Error (C04F)": VMware, DVA problems: 2
Blades in different Bladecenters. Only SAN might be somthing they share
(SVC), but still the disk devices are different.

Yes, I'm thinking about external from GroupWise - thats why I'm asking what
might damage the database. Is it even possible that GroupWise itself damages
it's database so that an "Block checksum error" results?

Thanks,
Mirko

Do you have any anti virus running on these systems? If so make sure they
aren't touching those GW databases.
Beyond that perhaps it is time to open an SR if you haven't already done so.

No, no anti virus.

I'll do that if it happens again.

Re: Error (C04F): Block checksum error

A rebuild needs a working domain of "some kind" - a recover can take what is there and attempt to reconstruct it, but a rebuild does indeed need a working database.

What file system is this on?

So using an "old" version from backup as a starting point, and then do a
rebuild should be all right? Sould result in a valid, complete and up to
date database?

ext3 (SLES 11)

No X-Tree? That is still one of those grey areas where no one really knows if it should be used.
