list_expander command failed while running make_net_recovery

Hello All,

I'm facing few issues while running the ignite backup. these have been running fine on other servers, seems to be strange with the error as it says there might be issue with the -x option. Below are the details. Please help me on this.



* Creating NFS mount directories for configuration files.

======= 09/22/10 09:34:54 EDT Started /opt/ignite/bin/make_net_recovery. (Wed

* Testing for necessary pax patch.
* Checking Versions of Recovery Tools
WARNING: The version of the tools used for system recovery on "colxd139" is
older than the version found on the server system "laxeu3". It is
recommended that you update Ignite-UX to the same version. You can do
this by using the command: /usr/sbin/swinstall -x
mount_all_filesystems=false -s
laxeu3:/var/opt/ignite/depots/recovery_cmds "*"
ERROR: The list_expander command failed. This could be due to a problem with
the -x options specified - Check the existence of the included
device(s).

======= 09/22/10 09:34:55 EDT make_net_recovery completed unsuccessfully

Read the warning and follow the advise.



What was the complete command you did start?


Hope this helps!

Re: list_expander command failed while running make_net_recovery

Run make_net_recovery with '-v' to get the real error.

IMHO this error often happens when a filesystem cannot be mounted because of a stale entry in /etc/fstab.

Yeah, looks like a stane mount, i got this error when trying to run the list_expander.

/opt/ignite/lbin/list_expander
ERROR: Cannot stat device file: /dev/vg40/lvol1: No such file or directory
(errno = 2). Check /etc/fstab for a bad entry.


It is listed in the fstab also, checking what is mounted on it and goona comment it out if not used .

Will keep this post updated if there is a success ro a failure :-) Thanks for the replies.
