my active file is grossly misnumbered, so inn will not run.
But when I try to run ctlinnd renumber '' to renumber the
active file, it complains that innd is not running.
Why does ctlinnd need to have a working innd to renumber the
active file? Can it not access the storage interface on its own?
Why doesn't finding that the filename already exists in
a tradspool-stored group trigger a renumbering of that group, instead
of shutting everything down? Would that be that hard to do?
--- and, several hours later ---
after renumbering, I still get SMstore: article already exists errors.
ctlinnd renumber does _NOT_ set the high-water-mark according to what
is in the directory. Could this be a file system problem? Or is
ctlinnd renumber referring to the history file rather than changing
to the directory and running an internal equivalent of
ls | sort -n | tail -n 1
