Make Recovery error

I am getting the following error when trying to perform an ignite backup. Someone has posted this error before, but what worked for them hasn't work for me, I am also getting additional warnings on the log, it doesn't seem to be tight to circuilar links.

Re: Make Recovery error

Is this host really part of a ServiceGuard cluster? If yes, is it running (cmviewcl) and is it running correctly?

What kind of a name is 'Wolverine'?

Re: Make Recovery error

control_cfg should be have 644 permissions and it should be readable for everyone.
check the permissions of that file.

What is your umask set for.

Please revert

Re: Make Recovery error


I found a possible reason of your problem: it seems about circular links.
Also see warning in patch PHSS_26498.

Anyway I suggest you to work out in this way: launch list_expander from command line

# /opt/ignite/lbin/list_expander | gzip - > /tmp/file_list.gz

In the end of file_list file should be where list_expander stopped. Remove circular links and re-try the same list_expander command; if it works fine then make_recovery works fine too.

I hope this helps you.

Re: Make Recovery error

How about upgrading Ignite-UX to the latest version with the required pax-patch.

Re: Make Recovery error

T.M. You got it!
I had an old version of Ignite, installing a newer version fixed the problem
