Re: DFM3.8 db backup Error: Database cannot be started -- Unknown error (37)

Is the DFM or backup dir on a NFS mount point?  If so, can you try to do the backup on a non-NFS directory?

Re: DFM3.8 db backup Error: Database cannot be started -- Unknown error (37)

Yes. the DFM db backup is to NFS mounted disk. Tried backup to local disk and it works fine - thanks for the suggestion in trying this. Could be then issue with NFS disk export permissions.

Re: DFM3.8 db backup Error: Database cannot be started -- Unknown error (37)

So DFM database backup doesn't support NFS?

I just tried it on "dfm 4.0.2 (4.0.2)", where /storage-03/backup_dfm/ is NFS volume with 777 permissions and DFM host has root permissions on it:

==> dfmserver.log <==

Aug 02 13:53:40 [dfmserver:ERROR]: [6399:0xeefffb90]: Error: Unable to confirm space available in /storage-03/backup_dfm/.

Could someont clarify that please?

Thanks,

Vladimir

DFM3.8 db backup Error: Database cannot be started -- Unknown error (37)

I use a nfs mount for backup and it has been working for a while. Then I get the same error: SQLAnywhere(dfmbackupdbvalidengine): Error: Database cannot be started -- Unknown error (37).

I restarted the nfslock service because the nfslock service hang up -> now it works.

DFM3.8 db backup Error: Database cannot be started -- Unknown error (37)

An answer, perhaps?

Does the "DFM database backup" supports NFS?

Thanks.
