Hello,

NW6.0.5, TSAup 17/ 18/ 19 tested, NSS.NLM (Build 670 MP) V. 3.05 9 June 2005
AS11.1SP1, also with QO79118.CAZ (NWDevice Update)

The trouble:

The backup jobs complete successfully, detailed logging showes, that really all
files *ARE* saved and *ARE* successfully compared (except some few files that
were already edited in the early morning hours: So mismatches also *ARE*
recognized)


When trying to restore files by tree view, the tree cannot be expanded for all
volumes saved.


Up to now this was always due to a corrupt ArcServe Database. So I copied over
the files from "emptydb", did a test backup with just few folders: Everything
looks fine.

Then again a full backup of the entire server's FS: No tree view for any volume.

Now I even deleted the full <volume>:arcserve/*.* structure, as well as the
AS-Objects in eDir and reinstalled AS11.1SP1, then applied QO79118.CAZ, the only
post 11.1sp1 patch I could see on CA's web pages, and scheduled another full
backup.


NSS Poolverifies are without errors and warnings (Massimo Rosen mentioned in
de.comp.sys.novell, that a poolverify isn't a reliable tool at all...)


A new setup backup job (full backup eDir + all volumes) did hang after re-setup
of AS11.1sp1 (from the scratch), here the job log file:

Where to look next?

Any suggestion appreciated, regards, Rudi.

2 hours later (09:51 AM) this proliant ML 530 expirienced a ASR reboot after an
ABEND (09:40AM). That fit's the current uptime of the server. The ASR is listing
this:

ASR Critical 06-03-2006 09:51a ASR Detected by System ROM
OS Critical 06-03-2006 09:40a Abnormal Program Termination (Abend:
Free received an invalid memory pointer
0x4C534C4E Running Process: NLS Remote
Thread 0 EIP: 25AF7Bh

The ABEND log has *NO* entry for this ASR recognized ABEND, but shows an entry,
that specifies a later event:

------------------------------ ABEND.LOG -------------------------------
Server FS1_GOEPFERT halted Friday, 2 June 2006 14.21.47,655
Abend 1 on P00: Server-5.60.05: Page Fault Processor Exception (Error code
00000000)
---------------- [snip] full abend.log at the end of this posting ------

At 14:21 (02:21 PM) the server was already rebooted, the prompt is without an
<1>, that's strange, isn't it?


Regards again, Rudi.
