make_net_recovery error (gzip)

Hi,

I need some help with this problem:
I ran a make_net_recovery into a server, with the following characteristics:
- HPUX 11.0 (patch level March 2004)
- gzip 1.3.5
- /var/opt/ignite file system is large file enabled.
I still get the following error:
gzip: stdout: File too large.

This start happening when I patched the server with March 2004 patch level. Before this, I do not have any problems, with the image size of more than 3 GB.
ON other forum, this has been discussed on other forum, with the solutions such as these:
- re-create file system with large file enabled.
- install the latest gzip 1.3.5 to /usr/contrib/bin
- remounting the file system
However, the problem persists.
Anybody has any idea? Thank in advance.

The following are the lists of image size:
-rw------- 1 bin sys 2667912885 Dec 3 16:20 2004-12-03,15:49
-rw------- 1 bin sys 1836378418 Jan 11 16:56 2005-01-11,16:30

One image is larger than 2GB. I had another image with is about 3.2GB, but it has been deleted, because I kept only 2 image.

The remote file system should be large files enabled.

Also check whether you are using v3 of NFS.

check as whether the large files are enabled on the file system using

No doubt thats the filesystem.

You can use fsadm to convert the filesystem to largefiles.

You will need to change the mounting options under 11.00 to include largefiles option. This option was deprecated in 11i v1.

Re: make_net_recovery error (gzip)

The /var/opt/ignite file system has been large enabled when it was first created. I have put the largefiles option as well in the /etc/fstab for mounting option. But you still got the errors. How do you check if you are using NFS v3? Maybe the problem is with the NFS?

Hi,

I don't know if you also have a patched zlib library, if used with ignite...

Re: make_net_recovery error (gzip)

How do I get the patched zlib library?

Hi,

From the same authors of gzip there is zlib.

Some applications use zlib and not the gzip binary.

more info on zlib
http://www.gzip.org/zlib/

ftp hpux versions from
http://eigen.ee.ualberta.ca/ftp/hpux/Misc/zlib-1.2.1/

Of course updating zlib could only be usefull if you have zlib in use already in an application.

Bob

Re: make_net_recovery error (gzip)

hi,

depending on the version of gzip you can't handle files > 2GB.

But if your zipped image is over 3GB you're including too much in your image. Be more selective and backup your application stuff etc. with your regular backup procedures.
