$ svn update -r 551

svn: RA layer request failed

Error (http://XXbuildmachine)

Our subversion database failed (right on a deadline of course), First
attempt to recover

the DB timed out (after 2 hours) and failed (This may have been an issue
with our server which is

a poor performer at the best of times).

 

For the second attempt at recovery I moved the repos to my local machine,
which

is nice and quick and recovered the DB in a about 3 seconds.

 

We appear to have more or less correct data, but this "sx4" error which
begins

effectively stops us peering/rolling back any further than 559.

 

I DO have a "dumped" backup file that covers up to r550, but nothing

for r551 itself, and from the head I can only roll backwards to 559.

 

For now I've built a new Repository, but I'd like to recover the damaged
history from

the broken repository.

 

I'd welcome any suggestions. TIA.

 

 

Cheers,
