Warning in Ignite

Hello everybody.
I have an HP-UX box where i have installed the Oracle Application Server.
After running Ignite on the server i get the following warning:

Warning:There was a problem with the list of files/directories to archive:
The following lines had too few/incorrect entries:
Problem lines:
line:27 /opt/oracle/appsrv/bin/nm0

Does this warning mean that an Ignite recovery of this backup will fail ?

What can this be related to ?

Thank you in advance.

Re: Warning in Ignite

A warning is not an error and doesn not mean the backup will fail. Wait for the (un)successful message at the end.

Inspect this directory!

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Even though I did not inspect this type of error why it comes out as far, I can say most likely it won't be a problem according to my experience.

I am agree with Torsten. watch out for an error.

Re: Warning in Ignite

Hi Alex,

One or more files in the system has the name contains / ends with a 'space'.

make_*_recovery list_expander which builds the list of files to include into the
archive. This list is stored in a file called flist. The warning indicates that an entry in this file has an unexpected format.

Please do not use filenames with a space to avoid this issue

Shalom,

The ignite backup says at the end whether the backup will succeed or fail.

I doubt this error will fail the backup, but check the log file to be sure.

Hi

Does "../opt/oracle/appsrv/bin/nm0 .." exist?

The error means that the file has garbage characters in it. list_expander has a set of rules for directory and filenames. Use the command:

ll -b /opt/oracle/appsrv/bin/nm0

You'll probably see special characters in the filename. Rename or remove the file.
