BACKUP and index file error (PROCINDEX)?

» close window

The Question is:

Recieved a  fatal message on the backup on this system.  Replied quit to the
 mesage.  What do you think the source of the problem is?  An idea I've had was
 version incompatibility since the system is newly upgraded.  Incompatible with
 what though is what
I don't know.

The Answer is :

  Per HELP/MESSAGE, there is normally another message with this one.
PROCINDEX,  error processing index file on 'device,' RVN 'n'
