Invalid block/record in BACKUP saveset?

» close window

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.
