I have problem with my Lotus Notes mail archive. When I tried to open it I got error message "B-structure is invalid." How do I fix it ? FYI, my archive database size 900 MB.
The B-Tree structure "error" is normally associated with view errors, where a view has been rebuilt on a Domino server using a client with an incrementally larger client version. This has been reported on a number of occasions where an ND6 client has accessed a DB on an R5 server without enough ACL access -- i.e., lower than designer -- to force the view collection to be rebuilt.
I have come across this myself on a number of occasions during testing. It is pretty hard to reproduce, but it can be done.
How to repair it?
- Put the database on a server 6.0.1 CF1+.
- Make sure the sever has designer or manager access to the database.
- Run the Updall Task with the -R and -C options, for example:
load Updall yourdb.nsf -R -C
This will rebuild all of the views in the database and repair the B-Tree error.
