Shalom,

It would appear to me that certain devices are missing on the restored system. What is unclear is whether the restore succeeded and the system booted.

Please clarify.

Re: HPUX 11.11 - Issue with ignite backup

Shalom,

If the system is functional, test it. Make sure basic functionality is there and it can perform needed work.

if so, you can then make a new Ignite recovery tape and deal with any errors in that archive.

Bringing the system and Ignite infrastructure to a more current version sometimes helps.

It is likely but not certain that you can ignore the recovery errors.

Re: HPUX 11.11 - Issue with ignite backup

hello,
I have checked the flist and I can see the
below entry in the flist.
1 120755 1275659722 17 0

How can I identify this in the system? is it a file or something else?

Thanks,

Can you show the lines around this line?
Is it just missing the name?

Re: HPUX 11.11 - Issue with ignite backup

Thanks for the reply. I have found the line.
In the root folder there was a file without the name (file name was null). I removed using rm -i ?

For the missing device file, the IOSCAN shows the ids 29-41 and all the SAN DISK were claimed.
But this is a secondary node in the cluster. Currently the Package is in the Primary node.

If I failover to secondary, will this be resolved? Please advise.
