Lawson system error

I receive the following error from our Lawson financial applications. I spoke with the lawson support and they stated this error related to changing the msgmni kernel paramater. Our parameter is 3x the size Lawson suggests it is. I dont think this is the answer. Can anyone tell me what this might suggest on the O/S of my HP server running 11.x

mft_os_write() failed errno: 28 (No space left on device) fe_stat: 28

Please advise?

Re: Lawson system error

It appears that you have run out of space in the filesystem. Do a 'bdf' and see if any of your file systems are at 100%. If so and you have vxfs filesystems you can easily extend the logical volume via sam or command line.

Hope this helps.

Re: Lawson system error

Any aborts with errno 28 can be an indication of not enough disk space. Did you check if you have enough disk space in /tmp or /var ?

Re: Lawson system error

Hi Vito,

There will be two possible chance for your problem:

1) Problem because of underconfigured semaphore values in the kernel. The first step is to confirm your kernel configuration with your application requirements. Run the command 'ipcs -sb' to determine the number of semaphores. Compare NSEMS values with Kernel Parameters. For a possible try, you can increase values of 'semmnu' and 'semmns'.

2) There will be lack of disk space in any of the file system. Check your file systems are not full (bdf)

Life is a promise, fulfill it!
