OS: hpux 11i version 2

Regards
Chui

Re: Stape configuration issue on the DAT 72 external tape drive

it seems that its related to unmatch version of modules.

Have you patch the system recently.

I would suggest that you patch system to latest and apply stape again.

u can download them from here.

Re: Stape configuration issue on the DAT 72 external tape drive

Hi Khairy,

If i were to upgrade the os patches, will it cause the oracle application compatibility issue. Currently the application running on oracle 10gR2.
Any idea.

Yes & No,

Before patching ?

make_tape_recovery for OS
DP - Backup or fbackup,tar backup for all your Oracle mount points.

in this case, Hope your boot disk are mirrored ?

I would break the mirror, and try patching on Second disk and bring up Server and Check Oracle Database Application works fine,

than mirror back to orignal.

Thanks,
Johnson

Yes, you can ,

But the Question is how ?

Due you have Ignite Server Setup.
(You can do OS Backup via ignite Server over the network)

for Oracle database, I would assume you need create NFS mount point of your current Server and mount in the Network Server for backup.

Please take note .You need stop Database before you backup the Oracle mount points

Hi Johnson,

1)Current server already pre-load with ignite software. Do you have the step on how to ignite server over the network.

2)Do you the step on how to create NFS mount
point of my current server and mount in into network server.

>>>>1)Current server already pre-load with ignite software. Do you have the step on how to ignite server over the network.<<<<<

meaning the client server is already part of your Ignite Server,(Do you have Ignite Server Setup in our current oraganistion)

How do you intend to perfrom the OS backup, Inorder to perfrom OS via network "You should setup Ignite Server"

Use make_net_recovery command to perfrom Ignite backup via Ignite Server.
Use make_tape_recovery command to perform OS backup via tape

>>>2)Do you the step on how to create NFS mount
point of my current server and mount in into network server.<<<

Do you have tape drive attached to server ?
