Subject Gbak restore problem , failing reporting nulls where non exist
Author Peter Chaisty
Hi I wonder if anyone can help / make any suggestions.

I have a backup of a live db which I make daily backups of.
This is the first time I attempted to restore this particular db
though I do have others of a similar structure I have succesfully

Restoring using gbak is failing with the error

gbak: restoring data for table DOWNLOADED_PINS
gbak: 961 records restored
gbak: restoring index PK_COST_GROUPS
gbak: restoring index PK_TERMINAL_REDIRECTS
gbak: restoring index U_TERMINAL_REDIRECTS
gbak: restoring data for table TERMINAL_REDIRECTS
gbak: ERROR: validation error for column TERMINAL_ID, value "*** null ***"
gbak: ERROR: warning -- record could not be restored
gbak: Exiting before completion due to errors

running gfix -v -full reports no errors

If I restore with the -n option then the process goes through.
I only have a few entries in the table Terminal_redirects and
columd_id is a PK and has no null entries.

I am using Firebird 1.5.2 on windows

running a restore on linux also gives the same error.

I would welcome advice / suggestions.
