I upgraded from 2.1.18 to 2.2.12 today and ran into a problem that has
been seen before on the mailing list - corrupted skiplist seen database.
The exact error message is:
Feb 11 09:13:39 cyrus-be1 imaps: DBERROR: skiplist recovery
/var/spool/cyrus/config/user/c/cooperl.seen: 0428 should be ADD or DELETE
Feb 11 09:13:39 cyrus-be1 imaps: DBERROR: opening
/var/spool/cyrus/config/user/c/cooperl.seen: cyrusdb error
I intend to follow Richard Wohlstadter's advice about using dd to truncate
the skiplist file at the point of the error, like so:
dd if=cooperl.seen of=cooperl.seen.fixed bs=1 count=1064
Has there been any new information on this problem in the meantime? Is
there any tool to brute-force recovery on a skiplist database like this?
Is there any more information I can provide that might be helpful in
tracking this down?
