make_sys_image still running

Hi Everyone,

I am trying to run my ignite process and I get the following error.....

NOTE: A previous make_sys_image process has not completed.

I have seen this before and have corrected the problem but today I cannot seem to figure out what is is to clear this.

Does any one know how to clear this so that I can run a clean ignite?

Any Help would be greately appreciated!!

Re: make_sys_image still running

Hi Tim,

Did you do a "ps -ef | grep ignite"? To check if an ignite is currently running? If not check the ignite log.

/var/adm/make_recovery.msgs

Look at the ignite server, may be there are something hanging over there, such as nfs mount, or other stuff.

Re: make_sys_image still running

That file does not exist...?

Ignite is not running, we had to reboot the system while and it stopped the Ignite process.

Make_sys_image writes something out and if the next process sees this it will not run thinking that another one is running.
