Netware 6.5 SP8 to OES2 SP3 Migration Error with migfiles

Hi,

at first. We would like to abuse the migfiles tool to mirror data from Netware to OES2 SP3 with trustees !! Do you know a better tool than migfiles, please let me know. It´s very important for me to use a CLI Command tool like migfiles, because it should run automatically.

We want to mirror data from a Netware 6.5 SP8 NSS Volume to a OES2 SP3 NSS Volume with trustess. The first migration with following line works without any error:

migfiles -s IPAddress -V Daten -x /media/nss/D4/Test3/ -i

From this point we need the -sync parameter to keep the data current.
I use this:

migfiles -s IPAddress -V Daten -x /media/nss/D4/Test3/ -i --sync "22-07-2011 16:26"

But then i became this errors:

Error: nbackup: Failed to restore: DATEN:VOLDATA.TDF
Error: nbackup: Received error: 0xfffdffdc ((libtsafs.so 6.50.0 291) An invalid path was used.) from NWSMTSWriteDataSet
Error: nbackup: Failed to restore: DATEN:tsa5up24/NWTAPE/
Error: nbackup: Received error: 0xfffdffdc ((libtsafs.so 6.50.0 291) An invalid path was used.) from NWSMTSWriteDataSet
Error: nbackup: Failed to restore: DATEN:tsa5up24/NWTAPE/NWTAPE.CDM
Fatal: Failed to restore data. Could not find destination path. If the destination path is a cluster resource, then check whether the resource is moved.
Fatal: nbackup: Received error: 0xfffdffe5 ((libtsafs.so 6.50.0 282) The data set handle is invalid.) from NWSMTSOpenDataSetForRestore

When the Sync job is finished, no file which was changed on the Source was migrated to the destination.

For your information. With the Novell Migration Tools (GUI) i have the same error. But with the Windows version "Novell Server Consolidation and Migration Toolkit" it works without any errors. But it´s a GUI tool without the possibility to run it automatically.

Any idea´s
Thanks Andreas

Re: Netware 6.5 SP8 to OES2 SP3 Migration Error with migfiles

$(UThis error comes for a couple of reasons like as mentioned if your target is a cluster resource and not reachable during sync.
Otherwise you can execute the migfiles .. --sync --debug option which generates a debug file at /var/opt/novell/log/migration/migfiles.log
You can send me this log file.

Re: Netware 6.5 SP8 to OES2 SP3 Migration Error with migfile

Hi,

the problem is solved.
It was my own big mistake. The Netware Volume is called "DATEN" but in my script i wrote "Daten".
The reason that i didn´t notice that, was the fact that the first migfiles job (without the --sync option) works perfectly without this error.
But the Sync job made this error.

Sorry guys for my mistake.

interesting. I did not know miggui was case sensitive for volume names. But now I do.
