make_tape_recovery issue with LIF to tape

I try to run a make_tape_recovery and get the following error:

* /opt/ignite/lbin/make_arch_config -c
/var/opt/ignite/recovery/2009-03-19,11:53/archive_cfg -g

make_medialif: ERROR: Cannot lifcp -r -K2 file "/opt/ignite/data/Rel_B.11.11/INS TCMDS" to "/var/tmp/uxinstlf.recovery:INSTCMDS"; possibly insufficient disk spac e, or max size for LIF volume in file "/var/tmp/uxinstlf.recovery" (see $LIFVolS ize).
ERROR: System Error, /opt/ignite/bin/make_medialif failed creating boot LIF

Any ideas?

Looks like there is no space on /var.

Check the free space on /var and cleanup file on /var/tmp.

Hi,

First check the /var for spave as T G Manikandan mentioned . and also ceck the media cartridge,if possible try with new medi. I faced the same kind of problem in one of my server and it resolved with new media.

Thnx...Farhan
