How to recover or restructure the original binary.errlog file!?

OS: Tru64 5.1A+PK4
Utility: WEBES 4.4.1

How can I either recover or restructure this binary.errlog ( because I have missed to rm the original binary.errlog, and but I still have the acsii logfile that was output from that original binary.errlog via wsea utility before days)

Hi,

I don't think you can restore your original binary errorlog because the ascii file will no have all the information and even if I doubt there exists a tool to bring that back to binary format.

To recreate a new, wel-initialised /var/adm/binary.errlog while binlogd is still running do:

kill -USR1 `cat /var/run/binlogd.pid`

If the binlog process is not running, do:

/sbin/init.d/binlog start

you CAN NOT re-import ASCII entries into the errlog file as binary entries, you can only do:

logger -b "I made a mistake and scrambled the errlog file"

Have fun,
____ Johan.

It's so regretful! It seems that there is no way to recover or restructure this original binary.errlog from the acsii logfile that was output via wsea utility before days)!

Anyway, thank you for the above help!
