MaxDB 7.9 Log File missing


Dear Community,

unfortunately we ran into the following issue on our SAP ECC 6.0 EhP8 Demo System:

In MaxDB 7.9 we activated automatic Log Backup to a System Drive, which ran full yesterday (DB Used space is 134 GB, Backup Drive ran over 200 GB).

Database is now offline, saying that the Logarea could not be opened. According to DB Studio there should be two files DISKL001 and DISKL002, but If I open the Log File Folder, the second File is missing!

I found the following help on research in order to recreate the Log Files.

But if I try to create a Full Backup using DB Studio or DBMCLI, I get the message:

message -9209,System error: logpage_not_found 61,The logarea could not be opened

Last Full Backup is too old to recover.

Do you have any ideas how to recreate the Log Files or create a Full Backup in order to make the recovery out of it afterwards?

DB Version is, OS is Win Server 2016 64 bit

Thanks in advance,
