    Red face Unanswered: Unable to write restore data

    Hi I'm running a restore of my SAP database but I get the following error messages even though the file system is exactly the same on the DR box as on the one that was backed up. Does anybody have any ideas as to what my problem could be? Thanks.

    The best might be to buy a consultant for this
    task.

    The error message is clear. Check the size of
    the specified chunk with dd, i.e.:

    dd if=/informix/CP1/sapdata/physdev55/data582 of=/dev/null bs=1024k

    This will tell you how large this chunk is (in MB).
    Compare this value to the chunks sizes on your production machine where you took the backup.

    Best regards

    Eric

    We have now two consultants, and it does seem to be an O/S / Hardware fault as there are error messages being recorded in the /var/adm/message file concerning read errors on the disk identified by the bar_act.log.
    Thanks for the responce. Once the problem is resolved I'll update the message.
