sysback error: /tmp/729340devlistfile: 0403-005 Cannot create the specified file.

Technote (troubleshooting)


Problem(Abstract)

when using -h flag with sysback backup commands, or using "Backup Data Hostname"
within smit sysback backup menu, you received:

The file access permissions do not allow the specified action.
/usr/bin/ksh: /tmp/729340devlistfile: 0403-005 Cannot create the specified file.
chkdev: There is no process to read data written to a pipe.

FAILURE: System backup failed to complete.

Cause

This error is recieved when backing up to a local device or directory

and entering the local aix hostname with the -h flag or
within the "Backup Data Hostname" option within smit.

This option is used when backing up to a device on a target
sysback server and not when backing up to a local device.


Resolving the problem

When backing up to a local device or directory, do not specify the -h flag

from the command line or "Backup Data Hostname" option within smit.
