Re: Backup and extend issues

What operating system is this?  The commands you're using aren't anything I recognice from HP-UX.

 

It looks like it may be from something called OMS from Alcatelt-Lucent.

 

I found a manual here, though I don't know if it'll help you or not.

Re: Backup and extend issues

thanks for your feedback...

 

but really it doesn't matter the application is used but the warning message which is appear when i try to extend file system or perfrom a backup for the system...

 

Procedure cannot be executed. Another configuration procedure is running on system.

 

i tried to restart the system but it fail to solve the problem to overcome any running configuration procedure.

 

does there is any way to know this running procedure...i tried to use ps command but really i didn't get any valubel O/P from it..

 

thanks

Yeah, it really DOES matter.  Trying to troubleshoot a problem when you don't know the application / operating system is VERY VERY difficult.

 

Would you go to the person that cuts your hair and complain because your elbow hurts and then be mad when they don't know why?  After all it's the symptom that counts, right?

 

The "configuration procedure" that is running on the system could be anything at this point.  MAYBE there's a lock file that something created that is causing the problem.
