Re: Full-Backup Issue

(You shouldn't be using ignite to take a "full" backup, only for the OS.)

 

Where are you trying to send the backup, to a tape or an ignite server?

Hi,

 

Make sure you have the latest Ignite-UX Software installed and configured if you prefer to perform Ignite-UX Network backup. 

 

I would recommend you to refer the HP Ignite-UX Guided Troubleshooting for step by step instruction on how to install and configure Ignite-UX and also perform network and tape backup.

 

Click here to access the HP Ignite-UX Guided Troubleshooting.

 

For Ignite-UX Server Side Configuration:

From the above link, navigate to "Configuration / How-To Guide" ->Ignite-UX Server Side Configuration 

 

Hope this information helps.

Re: Full-Backup Issue

Re: Full-Backup Issue

We really need the command line that you used to take your backup.  When running make_tape_recovery, -n is used for storing config files on an Ignite server and not very common. If you have an Ignite server, then using tape seems somewhat awkward. The message is clear: If you use -n, then the server specified with -s must be an NFS server and your client must be an NFS client. This is a standard tape backup command line:

 

make_tape_recovery -IAv -x inc_entire=vg00 -a /dev/rmt/0mn

 

where 0mn is the correct device name for your tape drive on this system.
