Warning during ignite backup

Hi,
I am using following command for ignite backup.
opt/ignite/bin/make_tape_recovery -Av


I see following warning in my log file. I also have attached the whole log file here. Can any one help me finding out the problem here and why i am receiving the warning. Thanks

WARNING: There was a problem with the list of files/directories to archive.
Input: /var/opt/ignite/recovery/2009-08-02,00:00/flist
The following line(s) had too few/incorrect entries:
Problem lines:
line: 41 odsarchive/oracle/10.1/agent106/bin/nmo0 100640 1084975920 0 0 NA 1 0x35e6 0x4000000a

Hello Salman,

The backup should be OK and that the file above is probably just being excluded from the archive. To verify this performing the following.

1) mt -t /dev/rmt/Xmn fsf 1
2) tar -tvf /dev/rmt/Xmn

Look for the file "odsarchive/oracle/10.1/agent106/bin/nmo0" in the output.

Regds,
R.K.

Re: Warning during ignite backup

Hello Again,

Problem lines:
>> line: 41 odsarchive/oracle/10.1/agent106/bin/nmo0 100640 1084975920 0 0 NA 1 0x35e6 0x4000000a <<= 40 chars but showing as 41
>> 100640 shows that this is a regular file with permission 640 ie -rw-r-----


Example:
# touch "abc " <<== will note the space after abc
# ll abc
abc not found
# ll abc*
-rw-rw-rw- 1 root sys 0 Aug 2 20:18 abc

# echo ab* | od -c
0000000 a b c \n <<== note extra space after 'c'
0000005

Try :
# ll odsarchive/oracle/10.1/agent106/bin/nmo0 <<== any errors
# echo odsarchive/oracle/10.1/agent106/bin/nmo0* | od -c <<== find number of characters

Re: Warning during ignite backup

Hi,
Please see bellow for the results of commands you asked me to run.


# mt -t /dev/rmt/Xmn fsf 1
/dev/rmt/Xmn: No such file or directory
# tar -tvf /dev/rmt/Xmn
tar: cannot open /dev/rmt/Xmn





And in second post.




# ll nmo0
nmo0 not found
# echo /odsarchive/oracle/10.1/agent106/bin/nmo0* | od -c
0000000 / o d s a r c h i v e / o r a c
0000020 l e / 1 0 . 1 / a g e n t 1 0 6
0000040 / b i n / n m o 0 \n

Re: Warning during ignite backup

First you have to find o/p:
# ioscan -fnC tape
you will find the value of X in this o/p
It will be some thing like

/dev/rmt/0mn <<== zero here

1) mt -t /dev/rmt/Xmn fsf 1 <<== replace X with a number
2) tar -tvf /dev/rmt/Xmn <<== replace X with a number.

In your case it will be 0 (zero), as no option is given while taking ignite by make_tape_recovery, so replace X by 0 as shown below:

1) mt -t /dev/rmt/0mn fsf 1
2) tar -tvf /dev/rmt/0mn

Re: Warning during ignite backup

Hello Salman,

Do we have the file "/odsarchive/oracle/10.1/agent106/bin/nmo0" in the tar o/p?

If yes, then possibly everything is ok.

Re: Warning during ignite backup

I feel everything is Ok.

Still to make it confirm, you can restore this single file for the ignite tape and compare both.

How to restore, look here:
