Hi list! I have a perplexing little problem that has recently shown up
on our HPUX boxes running ADSM.
The server is 18.104.22.168 and the clients are 22.214.171.124 (all platforms are
Recently, when running an incremental against directories /usr, /var,
and /users we get a message:
Server Version 2, Release 6, Level 0.16
Data compression forced on by the server
Server date/time: 12/05/1997 13:40:46 Last access: 12/05/1997
Incremental backup of file system: '/var'

Total number of objects updated: 0
Total number of objects rebound: 0
Total number of objects deleted: 0
Total number of objects failed: 0
Total number of bytes transferred: 0
Elapsed processing time: 0:00:55
Has anyone any idea as to why this is occurring? We have run successful
incrementals against these directories just fine every
day up until a week or so ago. I checked the online help for this
message and it states that the file format is unknown!? It is a mounted
directory... Anyway, all of our disks are LVM partitions and all of the
system filesystems (/, /usr, /var, /opt, /tmp) are vxfs (the basic vxfs
implementation provided by HP). All other vxfs filesystems work just
fine, so that *shouldn't* be the problem... Any ideas?
How about any IBMers?? You seen this before?
Any info would be appreciated! Thanks in Advance!
