CIFS Mount issue

I am experiencing an issue with an Informix backup on a 24TB windows 2000 server filesystem.

Platform HP L3000
OS HPUX 11.23
IDS 10.00.FC8

After performing the following command

$INFORMIXDIR/bin/ontape -v -t STDIO -s -L 0 >

to a local directory, the command is successful and the file created is 18+ GB.

I then use the following command to do a table level restore

cat -u | \

$INFORMIXDIR/bin/archecker -t -X -f ./rest1 -l phys -v -s
And the command is successful in restoring the table contents to the new table named in the schema command file.

I repeat the process to a windows 2000 server to a directory mounted with the following command

/usr/bin/cifsmount ///images -U -P

The mount is successful, the ontape command creates the archive file 18+ GB;
however the archecker process starts but stops.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Re: CIFS Mount issue

Shalom,

swlist -l product | grep -i cifs

Need to know your CIFS/Samba versions before proceeding.

The mv will not work right if the authentication to the windows share did not go as expected.

Re: CIFS Mount issue

Hi

Found an answer (* possible *) on the IBM website referring to not using the -b arguement in your command.

Answer to Posted thread

I believe if you remove the "b" from your command line you will have mu=ch

I generally run for ontape:

archecker -tdvs -f schema.cmd

Re: CIFS Mount issue

Larry - Sorry that I have no idea about the app error, but your HP-UX CIFS Client version is very old and needs to be updated. You need to be on A.02.02. It's located here:

Re: CIFS Mount issue

Shalom,

The results of the swlist command show versions of CIFS that I don't believe were ever released for an HP-UX 11.23 system.

Are we talking about an 11.23 system or an 11.11 or 11.00 system.
