ERR_MISC_EIDB: Missing, locked, unreachable or corrupted internal database¶
Internal databases are disk-based by default. In the default configuration, hard failures of DSS may corrupt internal database files.
Hard failures of DSS include:
Hard crash of DSS
Hard reboot of the machine
Out of disk space
Note that at this point, you will lose non critical DSS data based on the impacted database (e.g. discussions, jobs, requests).
An alternative and robust configuration consists in running an external PostgreSQL database. Refer to Externally hosting runtime databases.
This issue can only be fixed by a DSS administrator.
A DSS administrator needs to:
Back up internal database files.
Restart DSS. DSS will log the name of the corrupted database file.
Remove the corrupted database file.
