PermaLink Something to look out for when updating to 8.01 03/03/2008 02:03 PM
One of my contractors encountered a fun problem when updating our test server here at my day job to 8.01.  Apparently 8.01's corruption-detection is rather more sensitive than 8.00 or previous versions when it comes to checking for possible corruption in certain critical system databases.

In our case, we were updating a server called Pokey.

Yes, we used to have a server called Gumby, but though he was once a little green slab of clay, you can't see anything that Gumby does today because he got junked in 2003. The Blockheads got him. Or maybe he walked into a book too hard or something.

Pokey has been running 8.00b3 for some time now, but he took some time to update it to production 8.01 so we can do some testing against it (see my entry last week for "almost time to upgrade"). At startup, the first thing 8.01 did was to check for corruption in various crucial system databases, and it found some in names.nsf. Good thing, right? Not in this case. The "corruption" it found was in an attachment.

In the server document.

For Pokey itself.

Apparently it thought that the attached server.id file was a problem, so... it deleted the document.

Game over, dude! Server ground to an immediate halt.

The solution was to open that names.nsf up with an older client, put a good copy of the server document back, remove the attachment, and restart the server. All was well.

This worries me a little, since I'm now wondering how many older databases, some of which date back to the Domino 4.5 days and might have code that goes back to Notes 3.1.5 on NetWare or something, might get nibbled on when we go upgrading our full production machines, with dozens of databases and hundreds of thousands of documents, hundreds of them with attachments.

Just be wary.

Turtle,
My tech friend told me installing 801 she was unable to pull the NAB from a file server or cd, unlike usual. Could be a 801 bug.
FYI

I've seen that before on 6 and 7 installs before.

It's a real bitch, but that's what backups are for right? ;)
