Add client for recovery - Error message

Hi,

Im trying to add a client for recovery.
Today I added several clients to my ignite server.

This one gives me the following message:

"Unable to open device file. ERROR: Failed to initialize client directory in /var/opt/ignite/client.mnt"

Any ideas ?

Regards,

Joao Rei

Hi Joao,
Check the ownership & permissions of
/var/opt/ignite/clients
/var/opt/ignite/recovery/archives/

it should be bin:bin and 755
Set accordingly and reexport them through nfs

Hi Johnson,

Thanks for the reply.

I can add other clients. I'm using the hostname in the ignite "add client for recovery" GUI.

drwxr-xr-x 21 bin bin 8192 Oct 7 12:49 clients

This is just before I configure the archive NFS.

Re: Add client for recovery - Error message

Hi Joao,
what about /var/opt/ignite/recovery/archives/ directory in server ?

can you try mounting a NFS share from server to client manually?( both /var/opt/ignite/clients and /var/opt/ignite/recovery/archives/ )

Also check whether the hostname correctly resolves to IP from server and client

Yes, I can manually mount clients and recovery.

hostname correctly resolves to IP from server and client
