ignite error

HI
I am getting following error

NOTE: make_recovery(103): The make_recovery command will be replaced by
make_tape_recovery. Both commands are supported in this
release (Ignite-UX Revision 3.2). Please read the man page
make_tape_recovery(1M) for usage of the new command. In a
future release, make_recovery will be replaced by a script
that calls make_tape_recovery.
Option -A specified. Entire Core Volume Group/disk will be backed up.
make_recovery(284): Writing to the tape failed. Please check the existence of the tape, or the tape is write protected, or the tape is bad.
make_recovery(210): Encountered a fatal error.
make_recovery(212): Please fix errors and re-try.
Cleanup

Please suggest

Re: ignite error

Hi

Which commands did you issue ?
it sounds like command incompatibility ..
And which ignite version AND UX version do you have: check them following commands:

uname -a
swlist -l product |grep -i ignite

Re: ignite error

Hi Amit,

>>>Please check the existence of the tape, or the tape is write protected, or the tape is bad.
Please check if the tape is accessible before issuing the command.

Also let us know the ignite command used for backing up.

Confirm the tape device name.
# ioscan -fnC tape
# mt -f /dev/rmt/tape_device_name stat ## What is o/p?

You can use:
# make_tape_recovery -x inc_entire=vg00 -a /dev/tape_device_name
Don't fix that what ain't broke

Re: ignite error

Hi..

# diskinfo /dev/rmt/0mn
# mt rew

What do you get when using below command to take ignite backup:

# /opt/ignite/bin/make_tape_recovery -a /dev/rmt/0mn -I -v inc_entire=vg00
Don't fix that what ain't broke

Re: ignite error

Sorry for last thread..please include "-x" before inc_entire

So command would be:
# /opt/ignite/bin/make_tape_recovery -a /dev/rmt/0mn -I -v -x inc_entire=vg00

Re: ignite error

Hi Amit,

As per your logs,

you did not put the tape on DDS/DAT drive or
may the tape drive faulty/heads need to be cleaned/serviced.--->try to put cleaning tape and check on tape drive LED status.after putting tape LED for tape--> should green,if orage blinking/glowing then tape drive need to be cleaned either by cleaning tape/manual.

(If you suspect tape drive,contact service Engg)
above steps done then may the tape/media faulty

Re: ignite error

Also post...after inserted the tape.

mt -f status

what is the command you are running.

make_tape_recovery -A -I -v -x inc_entire=vg00 -a -x exclude=(this option you can use if you required.

Re: ignite error

Hi Again,

Few possibilities:
1. Tape is not present in drive
2. Bad tape
3. Bad drive

Secondly,
Check permissions to the files in /dev/rmt.
# ll /dev/rmt/* ## should be read-write

Make sure that the tape is NOT write-protected. (need to physically check)

Still require:
# diskinfo /dev/rmt/0mn

What happens when you rewind the tape.

Re: ignite error

You can also try removing and recreating spl files.
# rmsf -H 0/0/0/3/1.1.0
# insf -H 0/0/0/3/1.1.0

Else, if possible put the tape into another drive and see if it works. Might be a hardware issue.

Re: ignite error

Hi,

# ll /dev/rmt/0mn
# file /dev/rmt/0mn

Is it a device file or did someone overwrite this file?
