make_tape_recovery and include files

Hello,

I have a question related to the following command:

# /opt/ignite/bin/make_tape_recovery -x inc_entire=vg00 -a /dev/rmt/0mn

Is the above command will backup the entire vg00 with out verifying include/other files like arch.include, chkrec.include and so on...???

Thanks,
Nikee

Re: make_tape_recovery and include files

Hi Nikee:

Yes, in fact, the mentioned files were used by the earlier 'make_recovery' and not the replacement 'make_tape_recovery'.

Re: make_tape_recovery and include files

Only make_recovery -r (the older version) uses this file arch.include, the new make_tape_recovery does not apply here.

Re: make_tape_recovery and include files

Hi Nikee,

IF the files mentioned exist IN vg00, then they'll be included & any -x include= also specifying them is just redundant.

IF you want file/dirs included that are NOT in vg00 then you can either:
1) -x include=/dir/to/include
2) -x inc_entire=vg_name plus -x exclude=/dir/in/vg_name/not/wanted

And of course you can

-x exclude=/vg00/dirs/not/wanted

And YES -f content_file is NOT allowed IF you use any -x options.

HTH,
Jeff

Re: make_tape_recovery and include files

Hello All,

Thanks for the information.

I do not see much log information under
/var/opt/ignite/recovery/latest/recovery.log file. Could you please let us know how to generate detailed log messages for make_tape_recovery command?

Thank you,
Nikee

Re: make_tape_recovery and include files

Hi (Nikee):

I use:

/opt/ignite/bin/make_tape_recovery -x inc_entire=vg00 -I -v -a /dev/rmt/0mn

...to generate Ignite recovery tapes. The man pages for 'make_tape_recovery' are quite good. The verbose ('-v') option enables the output of additional messages to be placed in '/var/opt/ignite/recovery/latest/recovery.log'.

Regards!
