Backup process failing on LMS 2.2 (Solaris 8)

Hi all,

I am having problems with one of my CW servers.

This box is a Solaris 8, running LMS 2.2 / RWAN 1.3

When I run a manual or automatic database backup from the GUI, it stays there forever. It does create a folder, and subfolders (cmf, dfm, and rme), but only stores the filebackup.tar, nothing else. While old successful backups, have more folders/files within this 3 main folders.

From the log file (/var/adm/CSCOpx/log/dbbackup.log) I get:

************************************************************

ERROR(207): /opt/BACKUP_CW/backup.LOCK file exists. Most probably another backup process is running

Removing directory /opt/BACKUP_CW/628

I have checked, and the file namedfilter.str and parent folders have the same owner and permissions as other CW boxes I can check. Also, the backup folder has the same owner / permissions as well.

I need to upgrade to LMS 2.5.1, but can not afford to do so without a proper backup.

Any help much appreciatted.

Re: Backup process failing on LMS 2.2 (Solaris 8)

What are the permissions on /opt/CSCOpx/lib/eds/filter/namedfilter.str? Since you're running the backup through the web, it will execute as casuser. The perms on the above mentioned file should be casuser:casusers 0640. The perms on the parent directory should be casuser:casusers 0750.

Something else you might try is to run a local backup as root from the CLI:

/opt/CSCOpx/bin/perl /opt/CSCOpx/bin/backup.pl BACKUP_DIR LOG GEN

For example:

/opt/CSCOpx/bin/perl /opt/CSCOpx/bin/backup.pl /backup/cw /var/adm/CSCOpx/log/backup.log 0

Re: Backup process failing on LMS 2.2 (Solaris 8)

Hi jclarke,

Thanks for your reply.

Permissions, owner and group for the file and parent folder are ok.

The CLI backup stays there doing nothing.

# opt/CSCOpx/bin/perl /opt/CSCOpx/bin/backup.pl /vola /var/log/backupvola.log 0

# tail -f /var/log/backupvola.log

As you can see, both get stuck at the same point.

Thanks.

Re: Backup process failing on LMS 2.2 (Solaris 8)

What process is running most on the CPU? How long have you let this backup go?

Re: Backup process failing on LMS 2.2 (Solaris 8)

Hi jclarke,

I have left the CLI-started backup running for about 2 hours. The automatic runs all day long, but ends at the same point.

Re: Backup process failing on LMS 2.2 (Solaris 8)

Found the answer.

The crontable for user casuser had three instances of the backup process all at the same time. I deleted them using the CW GUI, and the manual CLI backup process worked again. In the process we also rebooted the server for another reason, so it could be the combination of both.

Hope it helps to someone else.
