Thread: Open file option

  1. Open file option


    Newtare 6.5 sp4 Groupwise 6.5.4 Open file option causes a problem with the
    nss pool, causing it to unload when trying to backup open files. If you unload
    the OFA.NLM and check to never backup open files this problem doesn't happen.
    Does anyone have a fix or workaround that will aloow this to function.

    Can you be more specific about exactly what happens during open file
    backups? Please include any errors that are seen on the server console,
    logger screen etc.

    Are you on the latest build of BE and OFO? Check
    sys:\bkupexec\version.doc for version/build info.

    Latest build of BE: http://support.veritas.com/docs/278600
    Update for OFO: http://support.veritas.com/docs/278900

  4. Re: Open file option

    Where do you see these errors/messages? The logger screen? It's normal
    behaviour for OFO to see the following on the logger screen:

    'The share point "SYS_SV" has been deactivated due to deactivate of
    volume SYS_SV. Pool SYS_SP set to the DEACTIVE state.'

    OFO creates a temporary snapshot pool/volume and then deactivates and
    deletes it when the backup is complete. So, these messages are normal
    and nothing to worry about.

    However, if you are getting other messages that you believe are errors,
    can you copy and paste them from the logger screen and post them here.
    You can grab the contents of the logger screen into a text file using
    this TID:
