[OpenAFS] "Illegal max volid increment" followed by very odd VolumeID
for new volumes
Sat, 15 Sep 2007 12:12:10 -0600
In the process of doing a dump/restore of a .backup volume to a new RW
volume, followed by a 'vos backup' of the new volume, I got the
" Illegal max volid increment"
The restore completed, the volume is OK, the new .backup volume can be
dumped and restored, so in general everything looks fine but the VolID
for new volumes are higher than anything I'm accustomed to seeing.
RWrite: 536870912 ROnly: 536870913 Backup: 536870914
Post 'illegal max volid' error:
RWrite: 1659489276 Backup: 1659489277
IIRC the typical volIDs are more accurately represented with a prepended
'0' -- i.e. 0536870912
Any info greatly appreciated. Are these new volIDs OK? How come the
bump from the nine digit (with leading 0) to ten digit IDs?
Should I try to restore a previous instance of the VLDB and get rid of
this thing, or is that futile and I'd end up in the same place? Did I
exceed a field width and that's the reason for the bump?
