Tru64 v 4.0F VRESTORE PROBLEM

Hi,

I have got a strange problem with vrestore on a tru64 unix server running version 4.0F. let me explain the scenario.

I have taken a vdump of mount point /u01 which contains /app/applmgr/...., off a tru64 unix 4.0f server

i vrestore this to another server in a different mountpoint say /u08 which has the structure /app/applmgr/.. on it.

the command i used for vrestore is

mt fsf 2 (to move to the /u01 fileset)
vrestore -x -D /u08 /app/applmgr

this restores the files into app/applmgr/...
but all files and directories that are restored have a strange owner = 14. I cannot imagine why.

Any tips or ideas to solve this ?

thanks

Pat

Check out /etc/groups on both systems.
That's where the 14 get's translated to a name.

Hi Pat,

On the system, you made the vdump the owner had the userid 14. On the system, you restored it, no user has userid 14. Compare both /etc/passwd. Just use:
find /u08 -user 14 -exec chown "usertoassign" "{}" ";"
to assign the files to a valid user on the second system.

Re: Tru64 v 4.0F VRESTORE PROBLEM

there are 2 possibilities:

1. /etc/passwd seems to be corrupt

or

2. the permissions of the files within the source directory have changed to owner 14. Please use fverify to check each kit of correct permissions/ownership.
