$ svn update -r 552
svn: Filesystem has no such string
locate_key: no such string `sx4'
$ svn update -r 551
svn: RA layer request failed
svn: GET of /svn/XX/!svn/ver/551/vss/MS10/XX/crt0.o: 500 Internal Server
Our subversion database failed (right on a deadline of course), First
the DB timed out (after 2 hours) and failed (This may have been an issue
a poor performer at the best of times).
For the second attempt at recovery I moved the repos to my local machine,
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
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
the broken repository.
I'd welcome any suggestions. TIA.
