An invalid argument was encountered in DP 6.0

An invalid argument was encountered in DP 6.0

When I open a backupset and go to schedule I get the message An invalid argument was encountered. And the schedule does not work.
Who can help me, please

Re: An invalid argument was encountered in DP 6.0

I had exactly the same problem with the IDB backup schedule. I could not see any fault in the configuration files (datalist in: config/server/datalists and corresponding schedule in config/server/datalists/schedules) and had to delete/recreate it.

Re: An invalid argument was encountered in DP 6.0

Has this issue been resolved? It seems odd that the two posts I have found relating to the error "An Invalid argument was encountered" (and now my issue) occur on the first day of the month.

Re: An invalid argument was encountered in DP 6.0

I just patched tonight with the latest patches. The "invalid argument" bug has not been fixed!

On top of that I'm now getting a new error: an occasional "IPC can not connect" pop up message when working with the Filesystem backup. This new error message pops up several times in a row and takes several clicks to get rid of it.

Guess what? Second day of the month and the error has gone...maybe it will be patched before 1-July.

Hello,

DP labs are aware of this problem and have already created a fix for that.
The fix contain new GUI binaries and is internally referenced at HP with the number QXCM1000406236.
Any other later GUI fix will work as well.

You need to log an officilal support case to get the fix.

Best regards,
Eric.
