Description:  When performing a full system backup  using this command:
              sysback -f /dev/rmt0 vg1 vg2

              I received the following error.

  Generating volume group information ..

    /usr/sbin/mkvginfo[35]: minsize = Cannot / 1024 + 1: 
   0403-008 The number of parameters specified is not correct.

        Unable to create volume group data file!


  The error is occuring from the data returned by a df command called
  from the /usr/sbin/mkvginfo script.  To test issue the 'df' from the
  command line.  If a failure occurs you will see the following error 

  Filesystem     used  iused  %iused  Mounted on 
  df: 0506-001 Cannot get mounttable information.
  df: 0506-002 There is not enough memory available now.

  The cause of the message is from a bad message in the message
  catalouge for En_US.

  \#echo $LANG

  If LANG=En_US then to fix problem do one of the following:

  Option A is to remove the invalid message catalouge:
    1. cd /usr/lib/nls/msg/En_US
    2. mv

  Option B is to copy the message catalouge from another language:

    1. cd /usr/lib/nls/msg/En_US
    2. cp ../en_US/ .

  Option C is set languague to C so that sysback will not set LANG:

    1. export LANG=C

This corrected the problem
