Error description

  • An external restore will fail if the following conditions are
    met
    a) the backup was done while there was at least one open
    transaction spawning some logical logs
    b)  there is more than one chunk in the rootdbs.
    
    In this case when trying to use this external restore you will
    see the following message:
    
    12:11:59  Recovery Mode
    12:12:01  External restore started.
    12:12:01  The chunk number 3 comes from a different external
    backup than dbspace 'rootdbs',
     or the chunk was  not externally backed up.
    12:12:01  External restore of critical dbspace 'rootdbs' failed.
    
    
    the chunk number will be the second chunk of the rootdbs.
