The Question is:
I am currently experiencing the following error:
Invalid RRV record encountered.
How can i aviod this error?
i am trying to access rms data files on a alpha vms cluster through odbc.
The Answer is :
: Invalid RRV record encountered.
This error is most likely caused by an RMS indexed file corruption.
This problem might be resolved via an RMS file CONVERT operation:
CONVERT/FAST/NOSORT/STATISTICS infile outfile
If the conversion operation fails, you will need to restore a recent
backup of the file, or request the assistance from Compaq Pofessional
Services to recover as much data from the corrupted file as is feasible.
There is also a (small) chance that the application or the ODBC package
is "making up" an illegal record file address (RFA), perhaps by
corrupting memory holding a table of records file addresses retrieved
in a prior query, or that it application is simply returning a bogus
condition value that happens to matche the RRV value.
