Unanswered: ontape -c doesnt seem to work
I have Informix v10.00.UC6 installed on AIX v5.3 ML 5. When i try to backup the logical log using the command "ontape -c" I get the following message
Performing continuous backup of logical logs.
Please mount tape 1 on /dev/rmt0 and press Return to continue ...
Tape is full ...
Please label this tape as number 1 in the log tape sequence.
This tape contains the following logical logs:
Please mount tape 2 on /dev/rmt0 and press Return to continue ... ^C
Interrupt received ...
Logbackup failed - Log backup terminated prematurely.
The setting on the onconfig file is as follows
LTAPEDEV /dev/rmt0 # Log tape device path
LTAPEBLK 32 # Log tape block size (Kbytes)
LTAPESIZE 10240 # Max amount of data to put on log tape (Kbytes)
I have tested the tape drive by running a tar command to copy a single file and that was successful. After this i erased the tape to make its a blank tape that use for this logical backup. However, the result seems to suggest otherwise.
Any ideas on what might be the problem?
Appreciate your time.
Try set LTAPESIZE to 0 .
With this configuration IDS will be try use the fully tape..

Thanks for getting back to me on this.
Yes, as you have mentioned i can either set the LTAPESIZE to 0 or to the size of the tape thats getting loaded. This resolved the issue.
Appreciate your help
