Hi All,

Here's issue. I am not able to backup one of our production database. This is the error it gives...

BackupIoRequest::WaitForIoCompletion: read failure on backup device 'E:\Database File\abc.mdf'. Operating system error 23(Data error (cyclic redundancy check).).

What can I do? This is an urgent production issue....Please let us know your view asap....

Looks like .MDF file is currupted. Run DBCC CHECKDB.

I would agree that this points to a physical disk problem on your server. Your only recourse may be to recover from your previous backup at this point. Check your SQL Server Error Log for 824 and 825 errors in the log. Run drive diagnostics and then CHECKDB to find the extent of the damage.

Please run the following and post all the results here.
DBCC CHECKDB (< Database Name > ) WITH NO_INFOMSGS, ALL_ERRORMSGS



Take a look at this article. http://www.sqlservercentral.com/articles/65804/

The Database size is 320 GB. I have started to run DBCC Checkdb on that database yesterday. It is running since 20 hours....Any idea why it is taking so long and why it is not completed yet?

In activity monitor it is showing Wait type FCB_REPLICA_WRITE. What can I do now?????

Please answer as it is a production issue and our application is down currently.

Thanks in advance.

Unless you are normally running CHECKDB (a recommended practice to catch these problems early on and reduce downtime/risk of data loss) and can look at the historical runs for how long it takes to run, there isn't a whole lot that you can do except wait it out. If you stop it, you won't get the information that you need to help resolve the problems.

Thanks for your reply. I was littlebit worried as this database is not much large, but it's already a day since I am running this process...It's really taking so long....The thread in activity monitor is suspended and wait type is 'FCB_REPLICA_WRITE'.

Is this normal?

Per the Book Online, that wait type signals the following:

Occurs when the pushing or pulling of a page to a snapshot (or a temporary snapshot created by DBCC) sparse file is synchronized.

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms179984.aspx


Based on that I'd say yes it is normal.

Maybe because there is corruption.

The checkDB algorithms are written in such a way that they can tell quickly if there is corruption or not, but if there is, then SQL has to go back and do extra detailed searches. it's called a 'deep-dive' and it can make the CheckDB time go up massively.

Wait until it's finished. To tell what's wrong we need the results. If you stop it now you're just going to have to run it to completion later.
