The Question is:
Installing the ALPBASR02_071 patch, the installation abort with the errors:
%BACKUP-E-INVBLKSIZE, invalid block size in saveset
%BACKUP-E-INVRECSIZ, invalid record size in saveset
The Answer is :
The BACKUP saveset has probably lost its file attributes -- was this
saveset copied through a non-OpenVMS system, or copied via FTP, or
copied via FTP without using the required Image transfer mode?
Please see the OpenVMS FAQ section entitled "MGMT20. How do I fix a
corrupt BACKUP saveset?" for information on the typical repair.
Please also move to (at least) OpenVMS Alpha V7.1-2.
