Situation

An smt-mirror instance had started and was interrupted. In this case the server went down and was brought back up. When attempting to start the smt-mirror again it returned the following errors:

Target:    /srv/www/htdocs/repo/$RCE/SLES11-Updates/sle-11-x86_64
D /srv/www/htdocs/repo/$RCE/SLES11-Updates/sle-11-x86_64/.repodata/repomd.xml
DBD::mysql::db selectall_hashref failed: statement contains no result [err was 4 now 2000000000]
Field 'localpath' does not exist (not one of ) at /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.10.0/SMT/Mirror/RpmMd.pm line 637.
DBD::mysql::db selectall_hashref failed: statement contains no result [err was 4 now 2000000000]
Field 'localpath' does not exist (not one of ) at /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.10.0/SMT/Mirror/RpmMd.pm line 637.

Resolution

In this case the reason for the errors is that the MySQL table is marked as crashed and needs to be repaired. To determine the issue, and attempt a repair of the table you can follow these steps:

1. mysqlcheck [options] dbname tablename (for example mysqlcheck -uroot -p db smt_stats)
error    : Table './wsu/smt_stats' is marked as crashed and should be repaired
2. /etc/init.d/mysql stop (to stop the mysql service)
3. myisamchk tablename (this will prompt you with the switches needed to fix the errors.)

myisamchk: error: Recordlink that points outside datafile at 10473420
MyISAM-table 'smt_stats.SMT' is corrupted
Fix it using switch "-r" or "-o"


4. mysamchk -r smt_stats.SMT

- recovering (with sort) MyISAM-table 'smt_stats.SMT'
Data records: 139144
- Fixing index 1
Found block that points outside data file at 10473420

5.
myisamchk dbname (run again to make sure no more errors are reported)
6. /etc/init.d/mysql start
