Critical State "backup" after recover with initialization


Hello Gurus,

I'm trying to perform a homogenous system copy of ECC5,Maxdb 7.6.05 on Suselinux 10, 64bit.

During the installation of DI, I was informed by sapinst to use DBMCLI to start the db restore. I've used db_activate RECOVER MEDIUM DATA successfully restored the DB to current place, but I failed to bring the database online with below message.

2009-01-17 02:34:12 889 ERR 20013 Admin Admin command cannot enter critical state 'Backup'

2009-01-17 02:34:12 889 ERR 6 KernelCo + Restart, Error code 6561 "dbm_command_not_possible"

Would you be so kind to advise what's the next action that I should try? Bring it offline and then online again?

Many thanks.

Rgds, Sam
