moving database between volumes

I have a 968LX that I am trying to use dbutil to move the database files from the system volume to a specific loogical device within a member volume.

When I use the command M[OVE] Image file name TO device and specifiy a proper file name and device number, It returns an fserr 55 , unable to copy file, device not available.

IS there sonmething special that has to be done

Hello Mark,

The FSERR 55 is a result of moving the database file across volume sets which is not supported. Moving database files within the same volume set should work.

Mark,

If you have MPEX you can do a COPY command to copy the database across volume sets. Don't do it while the database is open.

If you don't have MPEX you might just have to do a STORE and a RESTORE and specify which device you want the restore done to..

Re: moving database between volumes

I tried to restore the database files to a different device on a different volume set by using a DEV=3 option in the restore command. The files were still restored to the system volume set. The following message was logged in the list file:

/CENTRAL/DATA/CENTDB17 COULD NOT BE GIVEN SPECIFIED VOLUME RESTRICTIONS
MPEXL_SYSTEM_VOLUME_SET :S 24304 PRIV 1 - 1 768 1 32
8101 8101 /CENTRAL/DATA/CENTDB17
