APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Since IZ77870 fixes the backup command to exit on packing
    errors, mksysb/savevg will stop in such case.
    This apar will add the -P flag to mksysb/savevg to allow
    administrator to use /etc/exclude_packing.<vgname> to
    exclude files from packing so that they are still
    archived but not packed to avoid packing errors on files
    updated during the backup.
    

Local fix

  • Use -e flag to exclude files from backup, but then these
    files are not archived with the backup
    Use -p flag not to use packing at all during the backup
    but then the resulting mksysb size will be larger.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:
    * Users of mksysb on the 6100-05 Technology Level with the
    * bos.rte.archive fileset at the 6.1.5.2 through 6.1.5.3
    * level.
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    * mksysb fails with a message similar to:
    * backup: 0511-442 <file> will not be backed up
    *
    * 0512-003 mksysb may not have been able to archive some files.
    *
    * The backup will stop without completing
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:
    * Install APAR IV02368.
    *
    * Use -e or -p (lowercase) to exclude or not pack files.
    *
    * Prior to APAR availability, an interim fix is available from:
    * ftp://public.dhe.ibm.com/aix/efixes/iv02368/
    ****************************************************************
    

Problem conclusion

  • Since this involves errors with packed files a new option -P
    with an /etc/exclude_pack* file listing with files not too pack
    but will still be backed up.
