There is no vertica Epoch.log file to use to recover the database.
Can't find Epoch.log file
Recover vertica from last good epoch
Release : 21.2
Vertica creates a Epoch.log file when a force startup of Vertica is attempted. So if you don't do a fore start you will not have an Epoch.log file.
Run the following command:
./admintools -t start_db -d drdata -F
This command will probably fail but attempting a forced repair of Vertica database, will put an Epoch.log in the catalogue directory which is the same directory that contains vertica.log.
