    Hi Lion

    It looks like your OS got crashed. First please do a clean restart of DB after running following command if possible

    HDB stop

    cleanipc <SYS NR> remove

    HDB start

    If the same issue exists, you can upload xsengine_<hostname>*.trc from

    /usr/sap/<SID>/HDBXX/<host>/trace to find the root cause.

      I did try the cleanipc which I saw in another post.  It didn't work. I eventually reinstalled my secondary, then my primary, then restored from a recent backup.  Oddly the backup had volumes 0_1, 1_1, 2_1 and 4_1.  I was fairly nervous, but it worked to get me to the state I was at prior to configuring pacemaker.  It's a short putt from there.

      Thanks much for the support.

    Hello Lion,

    Please check the trace and alert files related to xsengine under directory /usr/sap/<SID>/HDB<instance numer>/<hostname>/trace to find the possible reason.

    • Have you thought about reinitializing the Xsengine? This worked for me before on a test system. I Wouldn't recommend this if you have applications using it though. If they are log segments that are missing, You have to find where they moved. Check if  log segment is truncated, if it is then you could "touch" log segment to create a dummy but I would only do this if the log is truncated.
