Patch Analysis

We need to do patch analysis between two hpux 10.20 servers. On one server, backup is failing, can some one suggest the best way to do it?

Re: Patch Analysis

Hi Wagar:

At 10.20...which is long out of support (since circa 1999), you're best choice is probably (simply):

# swlist

Re: Patch Analysis

Shalom,

My advice is get new hardware and migrate.

Get away from 10.20 unless you are the US Navy and can afford support.

Re: Patch Analysis

We will be replacing this system with SAP, thats why we havent upgraded it to 11i.

I have another question. We have upgraded the DataProtector from 5.5 to 6. The cell manager is running on RX8620 running 11.23. We have few 10.20 servers, all of them working fine except one. The problem we are having with this server is that after backing up 2 G of data, the backup process just stops and then dies out.

All other 10.20 servers have online JFS installed except this server. It doesnt have online JFS installed on it.

Can any one give me some suggestion in this regard.

Hi (again) Wagar:

If you are writing to a disk filesystem, then it appears that your filesystem doesn't have 'largefiles' enabled.

Since you say you don't have OnlineJFS installed, do:

# unmount /mountpoint
# fsadm -F vxfs -o largefiles /dev/vgNN/rlvolX
# mount /dev/vgNN/lvolx /mountpoint

...note the use of the raw device in the 'fsadm' arguments.

Re: Patch Analysis

Hi (again) :

...and if you convert a no-largefiles to a largefiles filesystem, be sure that you specifiy the matching state in '/etc/fstab'. That is, if you '/etc/fstab' has 'nolargefiles' and your actual filesystem is converted to 'largefiles', the next time you reboot, you will wonder why the filesystem didn't mount.

Re: Patch Analysis

Let me explain this thing in more detail. The server has DLT tape drive attached to it and we do full backup every night. While backing up to tape, the backup process stales when the amount of data being backed up is more than 2 G.

Do you think it is due to no largfile support?

How can I check if a file system is created with largfiles support.

If you copy to a temporary file, yes. If you write directly to tape, I don't see how, unless the application doesn't support files that large.

# fsadm -v /dev/vgNN/rlvolX

...will retunr 'largefiles' or 'nolargefiles'.
