Initially I have tried to recover the MaxDB liveCache database from the backup done in another computer thru a pipe. So it didin't work and I have canceled it and changed the recover medium from PIPE to FILE and later I executed again the recover from a file but it failed with the below error. The liveCache is of 7.6.04.09 on AIX 5.3.0
Below is the console output
>db_activate RECOVER FULL_SHADOW DATA
-24988,ERR_SQL: SQL error
-903,Host file I/O error
6,Data recovery failed

10,Job 1 (Backup / Restore Medium Task) [executing] WaitingT109 Result=3700
6,Error in backup task occured, Error code 3700 "hostfile_error"
The present medium for the recover is below:
FULL_SHADOW /sapdb/data/yanbalAP1/SAVE.DAT FILE DATA 0 8 NO NO 20090305182555 20090306175825 NONE
I look forward on how to get rid of any buffer cache info from the aborted backup/recover from pipe and close it so that I can work the recover with FILE.
