Thread: NIM - cannot create mksysb

  1. NIM - cannot create mksysb

    AIX 5300-06-02 - nim master
    AIX 5300-05 - nim client

    When I try to create mksysb from client machine error appears :

    Required = 1531133 (1496 MB) Available = 2786448 (2722 MB)
    Creating information file (/image.data) for rootvg.
    Creating list of files to back up
    Backing up 34534 files....
    ....
    ....
    backup medium write error: File too large

    1. fs on master (where the mksysb are created) is jfs2 .
    2. There is already mksysb much bigger (2,4 GB) from other machine :

    # pwd
    /NIM/export/mksysb
    # ls -l
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root system 2432000000 May 28 12:18
    mksysb_oracle_lpar_28052007

    3. Proces of creating mksysb ends when mksysb file is about 1GB.
    4. There is enough on fs :
    /dev/nim1 5701632 2786448 52% 10 1% /NIM


    any ideas ?
    maybe something on client side ? NFS problem ?

    regards

    You must increase file size limits for root on client.

    edit /etc/security/limits
    find the stanza that starts
    root:
    and add
    fsize = -1


    You should need to do this on just the client but I'd make it a
    seeting that is changed on all AIX servers in your environment
