Disk's RAID1 with SDS

Hi,

we have 2 Servers with a SUN One Directory Server 5.2 installed.
Both are in multimaster Replication since 2010/Feb.
Every Night a binary backup of DB Files running in a time of 1 Hour or less.
Since 2010/Jul/10 a db2bak (Binary Backup of Database Files)
run up to 9 Hours on both Servers!
At Jul/09 an Jul/10 no changes are made by the systems.

The producer and I find no solution until now...
Does anyone have ideas or tips?

Thanks,

regards
Robby

The Tools that have copied the database is "db2back" and "db2ldif". Both are binaries from SUN Directory Server.

The Source of the Problem was the very large changelogs (3 files up to 16 GB).
All in all 40 GB Changelogs, that was handled by the slapd-process during the db2bak (copy db) or db2ldif was running.
Normaly that's no Problem, but with this large changelog it is still a Problem or a Bug in the sharing of the database files
between ns-slapd and db2bak at the same runtime.
We have rebuild the changelogs , the size of this changelogs now are 3 GB and the Problem has gone away.

Thanks at All,

regards,
Robby Lehmann

/usr/bin/rsync -avz --ignore-existing user@x.x.x.x:/path_of_the_new_location
x.x.x.x=Ipaddress of the server where u want to take the backup
OR
If you want to take the backup in the same server just replace "user@x.x.x.x:/path_of_the_new_location" with the path.
