Databank restore with older backup

Databank restore with older backup

Databank restore with older backup

Dear all,

i have just signed in because i have an issue with a customer and i am looking for some help.
They use Mimer SQL Engine 10.0.
One of their DATABANK is corrupted, no valid backup exists except one which has been created 1 year ago.
There is any chance i can restore this DATABANK using this old backup?

Keep in mind that actually only one of their user databank is failed; log, trans, sysdb etc are all fine and this 1 year old backup is working properly, no errors via dbcw.exe. Furthermore the older logdb file size is bigger then the actual (130 gb vs 30 gb).

I tried to rename the worn databank, copy the older one in the same folder with the same name obiously and restore it using

but this error message shows up:
error -18008 in funcion EXECUTE
Restore in wrong sequence attempted.

Any help is well accepted!


RE: Databank restore with older backup

Do you know if the backup is an online backup, or a system backup? ("The backup can be taken either by using the Mimer SQL system administration statements for online backup, or by using the host file system utilities in a system backup." http://developer.mimer.com/documentation/html_100/...)

Are the "backup timestamp"s for the databank backup and for logdb the same? (Use dbcw to get backup timestamp.)
