Domino: DAOS & Transactional logging error – “…Log file is full” results in server hang


While perusing the IBM site and reviewing new technotes and SPRs I came across this one: 1440744

Basically it pertains to DAOS and transactional logging and a potential issue. The work-around is classic – call IBM and see if they can create a HF for you … wonderful. The reported SW version is 8.5 and the wording is

“…is expected to be fixed in an upcoming release of Lotus Notes/Domino”

so now I’ll go through the fix lists of 8.5.1 and (hopefully soon) 8.5.2 to see if this SPR was fixed there.

Error: “…Log file is full” results in server hang

Technote (troubleshooting)

Problem

In Lotus Domino, transaction logging and Domino Attachment and Object Service (DAOS) are enabled. However, every day the server hangs with the following error message; “Recovery Manager: Log File is Full”, necessitating a restart of the server.

Sample error in the console log:

[373070:00094-23131] RmFlush: Error calling DbDirGetBlockByDbiid for

DBIID E384E10C [span = 1649084K recLSN = 00002605-A2C3AE74] : Entry not found in index

[373070:00094-23131] RmFlush: Error calling DbDirGetBlockByDbiid for

DBIID E384E10C [span = 1690445K recLSN = 00002605-A2C3AE74] : Entry not found in index

……

[373070:00094-23131] RmFlush: Error calling DbDirGetBlockByDbiid for

DBIID E384E10C [span = 4000889K recLSN = 00002605-A2C3AE74] : Entry not found in index

When the span reaches 4G, the following error appears:

[495858:00002-00001] [datetime] Unable to update entry in catalog (for mail/xxx.nsf): Recovery Manager: Log file is full

Resolving the problem

This issue was reported to Quality Engineering as SPR# FLII8453UR and is expected to be fixed in an upcoming release of Lotus Notes/Domino. If you experience this situation, contact Product Support to see if a hotfix is available for your particular configuration.
