Duplicating directory structure problems

Made a separate file system (with more space) named /DataProtector and did a cpio of /opt/omni over to this file system. I tested by trying to shutdown omni services and got below output:

Dec-13 sys: /opt/omni-old/sbin/omnisv.sh -stop

/usr/lib/hpux32/dld.so: Unable to find library 'libBrandChg.so'.
Killed

The cpio command I used was:
cd /opt/omni
find . print | cpio -pdml /DataProtector

When I list my directory from each location, there is a difference
ORIGINAL /opt/omni:

Can someone guide me on what I am missing?

Thanks much!

Re: Duplicating directory structure problems

Dear Beannie,

first assumption, assume nothing.

I would recommend that you check what other file systems you have mounted under, /opt/omni,
/opt/omni/...... just in case.

Then copy the files

cd /opt/omni

find . -depth -print | cpio -padm /DataProtector

Or

cd /opt/omni

tar cvf - . | (cd /DataProtector; tar xvf -)

I hope this helps

Re: Duplicating directory structure problems

Based on the source and destination lists, they are the same (except for directory sizes). But ls tells you nothing useful about what you copied. There are hundreds of files that you have not checked. When you copy a series of directories, count the files and directories:

find /opt/omni -type d | wc -l
find /opt/omni -type f | wc -l
find /DataProtector -type d | wc -l
find /DataProtector -type f | wc -l

Note that the size of the copied directories will usually be smaller while a few files may actually be bigger. But if the counts are correct, then the copy succeeded. The step you are missing is to overlay the original directory /opt/omni with /DataProtector. DP, like many applications, is coded to run from it's installation directory. So unmount /DataProtector and remount it on top of /opt/omni:

umount /DataProtector
mount /dev/vg0ZZZ/lvolYYY /opt/omni

Now this is for testing only. The old /opt/omni still exists but is hidden under the new lvol. If everything is working, stop DP, umount the new lvol and cleanout /opt/omni. Now /opt/omni will be an empty directory, ready to be the mountpoint for the new lvol.

> /opt/omni-old...

What is that? Is that another copy of /opt/omni? Again, the problem is moving a complex installation to new directories.

Re: Duplicating directory structure problems

>dld.so: Unable to find library libBrandChg.so.

This fails because it likely expects the shlib to be still under opt/omni/ somewhere.

You should have shutdown omni before you copied and as Bill said, put it back under the original name. Or used a symlink.

Re: Duplicating directory structure problems

Thanks everyone. Points assigned. I did check my wc -l and got matching numbers from source and dest directories. What it came down to was the path (/opt/omni) and mounting that separately (as /opt/omni). Previous advice from this forum included that info and I didn't think it really mattered but apparently it does (still learning and always will be). Thanks again and Happy Holidays. :-)
