Second, the answer is: yes, database was created on win2k and the
filesistem is Fat32 (win98).
I think is better to change setup and do a full backup/restore during

From Borland:

Most likely the database was either straight file copied between the
two _different_ platforms or a non-transportable backup was restored
from the Windows machine to the NetWare server. In either case, the
database should be backed up as non-transportable and then restored.

Note: This error may even occur on the same operating system if the
file systems are of different types (for example, FAT16 and NTFS).

Note: A similar error ("internal gds software consistency check
(wrong record length (183))") may also occur for the same reason and
the same steps above can be used to resolve it.


So the question is, how was the db created on that machine (non-
transportable backup?), and if it was copied were the source and
target file systems the same?
