When I backup the Publisher to a share on the Subscriber (same LAN). It works. The tar file size is 365MB. When I specify a shared drive on a remote server, it fails. I've checked space/permissions etc. All ok.
Any ideas? Log file is attached in the next message.
I would suggest backing the file up locally, then scheduling a .bat job to copy the file across to the remote share.
What is the speed of the link to the remote site?
Do the BARS logs in the trace directory have any additional information? This looks like it is just the output from the last run.
Maybe you are hitting this bug;
CSCee43938 Bug Details
Archive file size is less than staging directory
BARS incorrectly reports file size limits when doing backup making it fail
BARS version 4.0(4) and earlier
First of all verify that the location where the archive is being created has
enough space, i.e. more than the staging directory size as indicated in the
BARS log. In that case, this is a valid message indicating that storage
destination location doesn't have enough space to host the archive file.
If there is enough space, and the message is still displayed, it could be
because of the following:
The problem occurs only when a single file has a size more than 2 GB. This
usually is the CDR database.
Purging old CDR records or deselecting CDR database backup during BARS
configuration can avoid this situation.
Update on 05/28/2004:-
The problem arose because the database size has increased more than 2GB and
BARS is unable to create the archive properly when a single file size is more
than 2 GB. Try to delete the records of the database which are not required and
then do a Backup.
Hope this helps!
I'm not sure of the size of the CDR database. I don't think its anywhere near 2Gb. I also don't have the username/password for CDR admin. What is the best way to reset the password?
However, I'm getting this error with only the CallManager backup specified. i.e. CDR is unchecked. I am using BARS version 4.0.12000
There is about 16Gb free space on the CCM publisher and 105Gb free on the network share.
Any more ideas guys?
