Dear all, The last days I did some further research with Benoit Grange and Willi Huber (they both run SUN OS, so we could use each others binaries) on the recent indexing problems. This morning I found out that the problems disappear when you don't use the '-p' prime option in netdbm. This option adds dummy objects to the database to make the lookups faster. So for the temporary solution: Do *NOT* use the '-p' option in netdbm !!! I am not sure yet if there is a bug in the code or that certain 'dbm' versions cause the problems. I will investigate further ... Kind regards, David Kessens RIPE NCC Database software maintainer --------
