    Unanswered: ONBAR install problem

    Hello everyone

    I am usualy using ontape to backup our database.

    But now I need to perform backups on disk and not on tape anymore.

    The problem with ontape, it is limited to 2 gig on disk. That is very annoying because I cannot do any automatic backup anymore.

    I would like to use onbar to perform backups on disk. I think onbar allow file greater than 2gig.

    I did run the onbar program. It doesn't work. I do not have any step by step documentation to install it. So here is what I did obtain as error.

    bar_act.log:
    2004-09-02 13:45:57 15141 15140 /informix/TST/bin/onbar_d -b -w

    2004-09-02 13:45:57 15141 15140 /informix/TST/bin/onbar_d: process exit 142 (0x8e)

    Based on my understanding, OnBar is looking for and XBSA library. What is that library? And do I need it to do a backup on the local disk?

    Is anyone has a kind of step by step installation and configuration of OnBar to backup on disk?

    To fix that problem do the folllowing:

    ln -s $INFORMIXDIR/lib/libbsa.so /usr/lib/ibsad001.so

    But there are several steps you still need to do to setup ISM which onbar needs to run. Do a search on the Internet. I know there is at least one good how-to out there, I can't remember the URL. Also I think the IBM site has some of the documents online.

    Now I can do backup.

    But I cannot restore.

    The bar_act.log :
    2004-09-07 09:34:48 29308 29307 /informix/PRD/bin/onbar_d -r -p -w

    Are you trying to restore on the same machine that you performed the backup on?

    Also execute the following commands:

    ism_show -devices

    ism_show -volumes

    No, I am restoring on another machine.

    I did transfer the ixbar.0 and onconfig.0 files

    ism_show -devices
    file disk 1 mounted on /dump/PRD/ISM_ARC, write enabled
    file disk 2 mounted on /dump/PRD/ISM_LOGS, write enabled

    ism_show -volumes
    volume pool flags written (%) expires
    1 ISMData 0 KB 09/06/06
    2 ISMLogs 113 MB 100% 09/06/06

    Hi,

    Please before run restore, run onbar -b -s, next run restore.

    Hi

    I did a onbar -b -w

    That was not OK?

    What is -s? ( Salvage logs - What does that mean )

    What I would like to do is:
    Doing a fool backup and restore it on another server.

    For imported restores you will have to use the environment variable
    INFXBSA_CLIENT=<hostname of the source machine where the backup was done>


    This is for Veritas Netbackup, not sure what SM you are using.
