I have two AIX 4.3.3 Servers running Oracle 8.1.7.
IFS-Server (Prod) and IFS-Server2 (standby). Oracle creates archivelog files, and moves them to the standby server, where they are processed by the standby database. When this process breaks, one or more archlog files might not get copied over, so I have to do it manually. A few days ago, the process broke, and so I went to copy the files over manually: oracle@ifs-server:/u04/oradata/prod/arch>cp arch_1_171492* /mnt/u12
/U12 is the mount the used to exist on the production server. I execute the command and get a command prompt back up, as if the copy executed ok, however the files never get over to the other server. They end up in a directory on the production server (ifs-server) in the root directory called: oracle@ifs-server:/mnt/u12.
Previously, when I would do a df -k, I'd see a list of mounts including one for /u12 which is on the standby server (ifs-server2), but it is gone. I have checked the /etc/filesystems file and there is no entry for /u12.
I have tried to create a new mountpoint via command line :
root@ifs-server2:/mount -n ifs-server2:/dev/lv12/u12 /mnt/u12 and I have also tried to use smit. I get errors that say:
mount: 0506-334 /mnt/u12 is not a known file system
or if I try to do it via smit, I enter the following:
FILE SYSTEM name [/dev/lv12/u12] +
DIRECTORY over which to mount [/u12] +
TYPE of file system +
FORCE the mount? no +
REMOTE NODE containing the file system [ifs-server2]
Mount as a REMOVABLE file system? no +
Mount as a READ-ONLY system? no +
Disallow DEVICE access via this mount? no +
Disallow execution of SUID and sgid programs no +
in this file system?
and I get:
Command: failed stdout: yes stderr: no
Before command completion, additional instructions may appear below.
mount: 1831-011 access denied for ifs-server2:/dev/lv12/u12
mount: 1831-008 giving up on:
The file access permissions do not allow the specified action.
So is it a permissions issue, or is the filesystem info put in wrong?
Funny thing is, the archivelog files ARE being copied over automatically. I restarted the recover managed standby database process, and current archivelog files get to /u12 on ifs-server2, but I cannot copy over the ones that were missed, and I need those to make the standby database current. Please help!!!!
