Yosemite Server Backup, version 8.0 and above



You may receive a DBERR_ error in a backup job log or within an alert. A DBERR_ signifies a condition within the database and in some cases may be an indication of a corrupt database. Common causes for database corruption can include an unexpected power outage, or improper shutdown of the operating system. In normal cases, Yosemite Server Backup automatically detects and repairs a corrupt database during initialization. However, there may be times when the quick check process may not detect any errors, in which case a manual catalog repair is recommended.

  1. Close Yosemite Server Backup.

  2. Stop the Yosemite Backup Service on the local Windows machine. For details on starting / stopping the Yosemite Backup Service refer to Solution #00004025 .

  3. Open the ytconfig.ini file in a text editor. This file is located in the config folder in the root directory of the Yosemite Server Backup install path. This location may vary based on the operating system and version of Yosemite Server Backup. For details on the default installation path, refer to Solution #00004045.

  4. Add the following as the last line in the [configuration] section, and then save and close the file.

  5. Open Yosemite Server Backup, but do not restart the service.

  6. The catalog repair will run automatically when Yosemite Server Backup launches.

  7. The Login screen will appear after the database is repaired.

  8. Close the window and start the Yosemite Backup service on the local Windows machine. 

  9. Login to the Yosemite Server Backup Administrator.
