Restoring a corrupt Lotus Notes certlog.nsf file

If the certlog.nsf gets corrupted, and it cannot be repaired using the fixup command, what should I do?

Restore it from backup, of course! If you don't have a backup, start doing them every night, starting tonight. (Sorry for the lecture, but it is amazing how many people do not perform good backups.) For this file, sometimes it works to try File -> Database -> New Copy.
