Repairing the Yosemite Server Backup Catalog

Just in case you ever need to repair the database again which seems to go funny more often than you would expect.

Yosemite KB TID:001583

Yosemite Backup incorporates a “self repairing” database, however it may
occasionally be desirable to manually initiate a database repair operation.

TO REPAIR THE YOSEMITE BACKUP CATALOG MANUALLY:
1. Close Yosemite Backup
2. Stop the Yosemite Backup Service:
3. Open a Command Prompt (Start > Run > CMD {ENTER})
4. Change to the Yosemite Backup Directory by typing the following:
CD “C:\Program Files\Barracuda\Yosemite Server Backup” {ENTER}
5. Type the following at the Command Prompt:
ytwinsvc -x {ENTER}
This will stop the Yosemite Backup Service on the local machine.
6. Open the ytconfig.ini file in the Yosemite Backup directory
([Install_Path]\config, by default) on the Master Server.
7. In the [configuration] section, add the following line:
repairDatabase=Yes
8. This section should now look like this:
[configuration]
lastUser=admin
lastDomain=Yosemite Backup Storage Domain
nodeGuid={00001001-421F132A-0003F771-FFE580D7}
databaseServerAddress=localhost
isDatabaseServer=Yes
databaseServerName=Yosemite Backup Storage Domain
disableNetwork=No
remoteAdmin=No
repairDatabase=Yes
9.  Save and close this file.
10. Open Yosemite Server Backup Administrator – DO NOT RESTART THE SERVICE.
11. The catalog repair will run automatically.
12. After the repair has completed the Login screen will appear. Close this window.
13. Restart the Yosemite Backup Service:
14. Open a Command Prompt (Start > Run > CMD {ENTER})
15. Change to the Yosemite ServerBackup Directory:
CD “C:\Program Files\Barracuda\Yosemite Server Backup” {ENTER}
16. Type the following at the Command Prompt:
ytwinsvc -s {ENTER}
This will start the Yosemite Backup Service on the local machine.
17. Login to the Yosemite Server Backup Administrator.
