frecover hanging

Hi

 

I'm running an frecover of about 200GB of data.

 

My graph file reads:

 

i /oradata/ttest
i /mnt/app/oracle

 

I used the command:

 

frecover -xv -g /var/adm/fbackupfiles/graph_file_recovery -f /dev/rmt/0m

 

The output from frecover is hanging at:

and so on.

 

It seems to have stuck on


9699328                1 /mnt/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/dbhome_1/xdk/lib/libxml11.a

 

whereby the index shows has a few more files to go before moving onto /oradata/ttest.

 

Also, the green light on the drive is still flashing.

 

Any ideas?

Re: frecover hanging

The green light on the tape drive is a primitive activity light -- which doesn't always mean that data is being transferred to the tape.  The if the 200GB is taking a lot longer than expected (don't know what model tape drive you are using), you may have a taoe drive problem. Try using a cleaning tape and the use a new tape and just include /mnt/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/dbhome_1 to see that the data can backed up OK. It may be a hardware issue with the drive. Unfortunately, some tape drives have poor error handling code and HP-UX drivers can't extract an error status.

Re: frecover hanging

Thanks Bill

 

It resumed a little later itself.

 

Thanks
