Verifying or Repairing the Hurricane Server Database

The Hurricane Server dbrepair tool can be run to verify and repair Hurricane Server's database file: master.fdb. This database contains the DNS cache, statistical information used for reports and your list of accounts. You should backup your master.fdb file prior to running dbrepair. master.fdb is in the Hurricane Serverdata directory.

There are 3 versions of the dbrepair tool. If you are running a version earlier than version 1.0.0.843, use the original dbrepair.zip. If you are running a version of the MTA between 1.0.0.843 and 2 then
you must use dbrepair2.zip, 2.0 and higher should use dbrepair3.zip. All versions are attached to this article as .zip files for convenient download.

The dbrepair tool must be run from the command line in the Hurricane Server bin directory. Download the appropriate .zip file from this article and unzip dbrepair.exe and its supporting files into the bin directory.

 dbrepair [-r] [-R] [-v]

r - Quick repair (marks bad items as inaccessible only, no output if no errors found)
R - Full repair, performs backup and in-place restore
v - Validate only (no output if no errors found)

All Hurricane Server services must be stopped prior to running dbrepair. You must also run this tool as an administrator with elevated privileges.
