Hp-Ux ignite backup problem

I am having HP-UX 11i installed on rp-5400 server.The ignite-ux bundle is installed on it.I do not have separate license for ignite but it is suppose to be free with HP-UX 11i.
But whenever I try to run commands such as "make_tape_recovery" and other ignite related commands it gives me error "permission denied " even though I am logged in as root.
Even the commands such as "print_manifest" do not work. I have even tried by reinstalling the ignite-ux but the problem remains the same.
Has anyone else has faced such problem?
If yes please let me know

Re: Hp-Ux ignite backup problem

- Ignite-UX is free, no license required.
- it seems permission problem, check the permission of the executables , such as make_tape_recovery, make_net_recovery
- you must logon as 'root' to run these commands.

Hi,

Ignite-UX is free product, doesn't need any License. make_tape_recovery has to be executed by root only.
if you haven't the set the path, try
#/opt/ignite/bin/make_tape_recovery
if this doesn't work

# ls -ld /
drwxr-xr-x 28 root root 1024 Jul 8 17:47 /

/ should be having permissions like above
never give up

Re: Hp-Ux ignite backup problem

This is a permissions issue.

Ignite is absolutely free product.

Check permissions on /opt/ignite.

Re: Hp-Ux ignite backup problem

If you install ignite-ux it is strongly recommended by hp to remove older versions before you install new versions.

Deinstall first your ignite-ux and then install the newest version of ignite.

You can get the newest version here.
-->http://www.software.hp.com/cgi-bin/swdepot_parser.cgi/cgi/displayProductInfo.pl?productNumber=IGNITEUXB

After that edit /etc/PATH
and add /opt/ignite/bin to the directory trees.

Then try again make_tape_recovery as root user.
If the problems remain come back to that thread
and give us feedback again

Re: Hp-Ux ignite backup problem

Hi,

I agree that it is a permission problem.
I run an older version of ignite.
All the binaries belong to "bin" and the permission are "555".
You might wanna investigate that.
Also, check you $PATH and see if the path to your ignite binaries is in.
I hope this helps.

Re: Hp-Ux ignite backup problem

just in case .... would the server be trusted ?

if yes what's umask currently set to and what version of ignite are you currently using ?

If this is less than ignite 3.4 you may wish to consider using a later version if it is trusted ... there was a known issue wrt the older versions .... or try setting umask differently in case it makes a difference ?
