sysback is backing up NFS mounted filesystems
During a full system install the /usr/sys/inst.images filesystem
I had the customer check on the server system where the backup
was created, on /usr/sys/inst.images filesystem. It appears
the customer has a jfs filesystem mounted first, then a
nfs mounted filesystem right on top of it. Instead of
ignoring it (the find command) it is printing out all the
files in that nfs mount. So the backup is now backing it up and
on the restore restoring it. So it is very easy to run out of space
in the jfs filesystem during the restore.
Restart the install
increase the size of /usr/sys/inst.images
unmount the nfs filesystem and recreate the backup
Add this entry in this command /usr/sbin/mkvgback
cp /usr/sbin/mkvgback /usr/sbin/mkvgback.org
change this line:
cmd="$cmd\\tfind .$dir ! -type s -xdev $days -print\\n"
cmd="$cmd\\tfind .$dir ! -type s -fstype jfs -xdev $days -print\\n"
Passing to level three for possible bug in sysback
This fix will be added to sysback 18.104.22.168
Sending this version to the customer
Closing with customer approval
