B-tree Structure is Invalid Solutions

Why the “B-tree Structure is Invalid” error appears? Usually this happens because of the mail file replica you are working with. It could be corrupted.

These are the solutions we found:

Solution #1

If you would know that view index is the culprit, you could run updall from the
server console against that exact view:

LOAD UPDALL database.nsf -R -T [view-name]

If you don’t have any ideas what view it is, then you could leave off the -T [view-name] part of it
and all view indexes will be recreated now.

Solution #2

You should upgrade the Domino Server to the last release which is 5.0.6 or 6. We know that the issue is resolved on these new versions.

Solution #3

You could try Fixup and/or Compact. You should overwrite the corrupted database with it.

Solution #4

Here’s what you could try:

– Delete the database icon from the Workspace
– Close the notes client
– Delete the cahce.dsk from the user’s data directory
– Run notes again
– Open the database
– Try fixup -F dbname.nsf and l compact -c dbname.nsf

Solution #5

Go to the remote server console and you should run this command:
load updall -t “KW View” -r

Solution #6

Open the database and use the following combinations of keys: Ctrl + Shift + F9 to rebuild the views.

Solution #7

This is one of the easiest solutions that probably it came to your mind also.. but I thought it would be a good idea to mention here. You could also try to restore your database from the most recent backup that works.
