Subject gbak error
Author Carsten Schäfer
I'm using Firebird 1.o on Win2000.
Now I have seen that after an update of a table (add column) backup is not working any longer.
I get the followowing error:
gbak: writing data for table T_ANGEBOT
gbak: ERROR: message length error (encountered 1548, expected 1302)
gbak: ERROR: gds_$receive failed
gbak: Exiting before completion due to errors

t_angebot is the table where the add column took place.
I've seen a similar error posted on februar this year.
Is my databse corrupted now ?

How to get a working backup for this db ?
Yes, it's in production.
