Getting the error sysrest: ls not found.
Env: AIX 3.2.4
sysback ver 184.108.40.206
8mm tape 2.3gb
Customer created a sysback full system backup on his 980 and
then tried to restore it on a old 5xx. After all the files
had been restore he got this error message:
sysrest: ls not found. And the system just hangs.
Looked at /usr/lpp/sysback/inst/sysrest script, line 127:
cd /dev && ls | backbyname -irf$MROOT/tmp/ram.devs >/dev/null 2>&1
1. His sysback full system backup was only 250mb in size.
2. df showed there was atleast 500mb in rootvg used
not all the data is being backed up for some reason.
3. sysrestore -lf /dev/rmt1 -v rootvg | tee \
/dev, /etc, /home, /sybase
no /usr filesystem was there on this tape
4. df /usr
That looked fine
5. sysback -vpf /dev/rmt1 | tee \
did not include the /usr, and /bin directory
cd /tmp and checked the list file and no /usr or bin files
6. mkvgback -pv /dev/rmt1 | tee \
7. /usr/sbin/getlvminfo -V rootvg > file
hd2 was in that file
8. vi /etc/filesystems
check the stanz for /usr:
It looked ok
9. grep -p "dev.*=.*/dev/hd2[ ]*$" /etc/filesystems >/tmp/TMPFILE
We looked at the /tmp/TMPFILE and found
two stanzs one for /home: and the other for /usr:
10. vi /etc/filesystems
We looked at the stanz for /home: it did not have a space
between /usr:, so we added one blank line.
That fixed the problem
