Solaris 9 ufsdump Error in ftw (No such file or directory)
Posted on 2005-04-12
I have a cron backup that recently started to dump on the back up giving the following:
DUMP: Date of this level 0 dump: Tue Apr 12 09:55:45 2005
DUMP: Date of last level 0 dump: the epoch
DUMP: Dumping /dev/rdsk/c0t0d0s0 (fischer:/) to kasparov:/dev/rmt/0un.
DUMP: Mapping (Pass I) [regular files]
DUMP: Error in ftw (No such file or directory)
DUMP: The ENTIRE dump is aborted.
I wrote a script to back up by directory one at a time until I found there
are two directories that cause this error when I try to back them up.
there have not been any permission changes to the directory or how
the files are created in the directories. the directories contain temporary
files for a website which are removed by a cron after 48 hours.
here is a sample listing of the files in the directory that causes the error
I also get the error when trying to list the files but the error is random and
doesn;t always list the same files as not found.:
/ldcj6781.htm: No such file or directory
./zdon4321.pdf: No such file or directory
./hamd3278.htm: No such file or directory
./kvof9280.tmp: No such file or directory
.vjko0285.pdf: No such file or directory
./izgr2877.htm: No such file or directory
./15372.htm: No such file or directory

Any help as to why the the backup is dumping would be appreciated.
