charcter device file

While taking database backup through DP. I m getting following error

[Minor] From: RBDA@xprod "[Disk Image]: PRODuwbBC1-20" Time: 9/27/2008 9:35:02 AM
[81:76] /dev/vg_uwp_c01/rlvol_opt_uwp
Cannot perform stat(): ([2] No such file or directory) => not backed up.
But when i I am checking in /dev for device file . the character device file is residing in this path.

When the error message is about devices, "no such file or directory" can have an additional meaning: if the device node /dev/vg_uwp_c01/rlvol_opt_uwp indeed exists, the error message is trying to say that the LV behind the device node is not available.

(The POSIX standard does not have a specific error code for "LV is not available", so the stat() system call uses the error code with the closest possible meaning.)

Is the VG activated? In other words, can you successfully run "vgdisplay -v vg_uwp_c01" and "lvdisplay /dev/vg_uwp_c01/lvol_opt_uwp"?
