• Re-processing QWK packets

    From poindexter FORTRAN@VERT/REALITY to All on Sat Jan 27 08:33:00 2024
    All (and most likely DM),

    I noticed a handful of VERT.QWKxxxxxx.bad files in my DATA directory,
    I'm guessing there was a problem importing the packets. I can open them
    up in 7-zip and it looks like a valid packet. If I try renaming the file
    to vert.qwk and opening one of the .bad files in MultiMail, I get a
    "packet type not recognized" error, although I can open other .zip
    formatted .QWK files.

    It looks like I've got zip 2.31/unzip 5.52 in my path.

    Is there a way to re-import the files, so I can see if I get any error
    messages on import?

    Yes, just renaming the file to VERT.QWK should trigger an import attempt (in the terminal server event thread).

    If you can search through older log messages, you should also be able to find the original errors that triggered the renaming to *.bad in the first place.

    Thanks, I saw this when I tried re-importing:

    1/28 09:54:31a QNET !Message from VERT on UNKNOWN QWK CONFERENCE
    NUMBER: 2022

    1/28 09:54:31a QNET C:\sbbs\data\VERT.qwk renamed to C:\sbbs\data\VERT.qwk.65b694d7.bad

    (There were some other errors about duplicate messages as well)

    The weird thing was that when I added TECH_TALK to the BBS, I'd noticed
    that my DOVE boards were set to dynamic numbers, and I have a message
    area 2022 configured as TECH_TALK.

    I just tried deleting the area and re-creating it as a static QWK area #
    2022 and got the same error.

    That's correct. Only QWKnet *hubs* should enable static QWK conference numbering.

    , and I have a message
    area 2022 configured as TECH_TALK.

    I just tried deleting the area and re-creating it as a static QWK area # 2022 and got the same error.

    That conference number (2022) needs to be configured for a QWKhub in SCFG->Networks->QWK->Hubs->VERT->Sub-boards.

    That fixed my issue - thanks!
