Being mainly a Solaris shop we have recently been asked to look after a new application that runs on AIX 5L 64 bit. We have of the database running and have been testing a backup stragety.

Oracle reports backs corruptions when trying to backup the archived redo logs if the archive_log_dest is pointing to a JFS2 disk. We are using disk backups at the moment and if the filesets are copied to a JFS2 volume, we cannot restore the files, get a RMAN error saying that not all data blocks were found in the backup piece.

We raised a tar but not much help. I thought JFS2 was a supported version. I was wondering if anyone else was using this setup and had experienced any issues!
