During the Debian upgrade vom Woody to Sarge, INN was being upgraded from
2.3.x to 2.4.x.
The upgrade itself was fine, but the expire cron job this morning messed
up my local news archives. :-(
It seems that the lowwatermarks of my local archive newsgroups have been
modified. The article files are still intact (I'm using tradspool):
bastian:/var/backups/news# ls -l /var/spool/news/rme-audio/forum/ | wc -l
200 bastian.bw-networx.net InterNetNews NNRP server INN 2.4.3 (20050407
prerelease) ready (posting ok).
211 40 51414 51453 rme-audio.forum
But the watermark points to 51414 which leaves 40 articles available
in that archive. :-(
Question: How can I reset the watermark, so that all ~50000 articles are
And how can I prevent expire to mess up the watermarks again?
For this newsgroup my expire.ctl looks like this:
Here is the output of the expirejob from this morning:

Thanks in advance for any help!
