Fabasoft iArchive Hotfix - Inconsistencies when objects are restored

Last update: 6 February 2018

Summary

Under the prevailing circumstances data changes can occur when archived objects are restored. A hotfix is available from Fabasoft.

Information

Under the following circumstances data changes or data corruption can occur for involved objects:

  • Fabasoft iArchive is in use,  AND
  • CSV migrations are in use to convert object classes from older versions "on-the-fly",  AND
  • objects with older object classes were archived with Fabasoft iArchive,  AND
  • these objects are restored with the Fabasoft iArchive feature using a CSV migration table

During the restore the following data changes or corruption may occur to the object:

  • The issue only occurs if the object class needs CSV migration.
  • The sort ordering of all non-migrated aggregates of all versions (including current) is reversed (data change)
  • The sort ordering of the version aggregate is reversed, resulting in:
    • the version table cannot be read
    • no version can be read

Solution

A hotfix is available for this issue. Fabasoft urgently recommends customers using Fabasoft iArchive to request and install the available hotfix. Please create a ticket in Fabasoft Service Desk or contact us via support@fabasoft.com and include your version-information and build numbers for quick processing.
