    Unanswered: Bootstrap failed

    Hi all, we have IDS 9.4 installed on Windows 2003 server.
    The problem is that when I try to backup using command
    onbar -b -w -L 1 bootstrap creation failed.
    There are no errors in
    server message log and onbar activity log but when onbar script tries to
    create bootstrap by (ism_catalog -create_bootstrap...) the following output
    is writen out:

    d:\informix\bin\onbar -b -w -L 1
    01/31/06 08:11:38 savegrp: command 'save -g ISMData -LL -f - -m hour.eu.jm.com -B -t 1108715286 -l 9 -q -W78 D:\ISM\2.20\index\hour.eu.jm.com ' for client hour.eu.jm.com exited with return code 9.

    01/31/06 08:15:24 savegrp: hour.eu.jm.com:bootstrap will retry 0 more time(s)

    If anybody can assist me with this problem I will be very grateful.
    Thanks

    Hi,

    Please check if BAR_XFER_BUF_SIZE=15, and test permissions of user that run onbar.
    Look the output file BAR_ACT_LOG and define BAR_BSALIB_PATH.

    Gustavo.

    Hi,
    Excellent. The message number 152 is because a process onbar be running.
    The error occure because one logical logs was full.
    This work OK.

    Yes, I know what is error 152, but is this error the reason why bootstrap
    creation failed?

    I found out, that when I unplugged the network cable and restarted IDS, onbar worked fine and bootstrap was created. But when I started IDS with enabled network then the same problem appeared.
    Any ideas??
    Thanks
