ignite C.6.0.109 questions

Hi all:

HPUX 11.11 running on rp7410
Have ignite C.6.0.109 installed.

2 questions.

1) The makerec.log1 and makerec.log2 files are not being created. What is missing?

2) I am doing an ignite of vg00. Pretty much a standard OS load with no additional applications to worry about. The issue is that the ignite completes in less than 5 minutes. Seems awfully fast! Yet the output says that 48198+0 records in and out.

I don't trust this. Any ideas what could be happening?

Many thanks all!

If the amount of data being written exceeds the bandwidth capacity of the tape media, I'd suspect the backup is no good.

I would not trust this tape until it proves itself capable of recovering a aystem.

How much data is being backed up?

What is the commandline being used to create the tape?

Hi SEP:

The amount of data is ~6346005 KB
The command line is;
make_tape_recovery -A -I -D "description" -a

This is an internal DAT4 drive.

I do not understand your bandwidth statement. Could you elaborate?

what happens if you use,

make_tape_recovery -x inc_entire=vg00 -D "XXX" -I -v -a "device"

Hi all:

Using the inc_entire=vg00 is the trick.
I was under the belief that vg00 is automatically picked up but I guess not.

Many thanks!
