Original Question:
We've been getting the following error from our Solstice backup
and I'm wondering if anyone has ever seen this "WISS" error and/or knows
what it is and how to get rid of it.

thanx, I'll Summarize


General concensus of opinion is that the indices were messed up.

Sunsolve Doc 17771 gives details but in a nutshell running

        nsrck -F <hostname>

should fix the problem. If it doesn't then you either have to reload the
indices from tape backup or regenerate the indices.
