Problem with Ignite-UX-11-11 C.7.2.94

I have problems executing the backup with ignite, error message:

ERROR: list_expander returned an error.
ERROR: list_expander returned an error.
ERROR: Failed to get the archive size and the list of files which will be in
archive.

======= 09/06/07 12:07:52 SAT make_tape_recovery completed unsuccessfully

I use this command:

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

I need help.

Thanks.

Shalom,

Check that the /var system has sufficient space to build the file list. Normally insufficeint /var filesystem space causes this issue.

Okay, its probably not /var

Lets see the ignite log? You should be able to upload and post it.

Other common issues, though they generally give other error messages:

1) Consisttent LVM configuration. If there is a volume group with a disk absent or other problems, Ignite will not complete.

#export INST_DEBUG=2
#/opt/ignite/lbin/list_expander > /tmp/list_expander.log


Attach the list_expander.log, see we can value add.

WARNING: '/usr/lib/libcrypto.sl' is part of a circular link.

Try to find the bad symlink:
$ ll -a /usr/lib/libcrypto.sl

If the link was at the directory level, there would be more problems.

>wheres is found ignite log?

Not sure, have you tried searching under /var/adm/?
Respected Contributor

Re: Problem with Ignite-UX-11-11 C.7.2.94

Gugoni-

I wonder, have you tried something other than the -lv option ? (-l LLA, the doc has the LLA as a value to the -l flag.)

How about trying -Av and use the preview opiton -p ?

ex:

make_tape_recovery -Av -x inc_entire=vg00 -a tape_dev -p
