If an Essbase application is abnormally terminated, either by a crash or user intervention, it can cause a corruption in the database. One of the types of database corruption is an "Invalid Block Header (IBH)". Errors in the application log include:
- Invalid block header: Block numbers do not match -- Please use the IBH Locate/Fix utilities to find/fix the IBH problem
- Invalid transaction status for block -- Please use the IBH Locate/Fix utilities to find/fix the problem -- Please use the IBH Locate/Fix utilities to find/fix the IBH problem
- Duplicate key found in AVL-Tree.
Another issue that has been mistakenly reported to be an IBH problem is when you see the presence of the following error:
Corrupted Node Page in the B+tree. [adIndPromoteSafeWrite] aborted
This is not an IBH issue, and has been fixed already in the 220.127.116.11.106 and 18.104.22.168.500 code lines.
