Subject Re: Plan not working
I found the problem

I did a test backup, renamed my current dataset and restored the
backup. All the data was there, the correct metadata etc. but the
plan would just not work. (Backed up using IBConsole).

When I recovered my renamed dataset - the plans work.

I will play about a bit more to see how this is possible, but it
would be nice to know restored backups can use indices !
