backup fails on a file system

Hi

MSL 6030 tape library is connected to a hp-ux server and it is giving the below error for a file system backup.

Not a valid mount point => aborting

I checked and the relevent file system was mounted on the system.
any clues mostly appriciated.

Re: backup fails on a file system

r u using hpux fbackup or normal tar command to backup?

any output from ioscan -funC tape?

Re: backup fails on a file system

Sorry, but your question is meaningless.

"...it is giving the below error for a file system backup."

Not the library is giving this message, this comes from a backup application.

Data protector?

Without more details nobody can help you.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
