On our Groupwise 8 mailsystem, based on OS SLES10SP4 whe use dbcopy to make a D2D backup from the mail databases.
In the weekend whe do a FULL backup, with the following command line :

echo "./dbcopy -m -f $SRC $FINAL_DST" > $DBCOPY_DIR/dbcopy-$ID-job
echo "./dbcopy -m -s $SRC $FINAL_DST" >> $DBCOPY_DIR/dbcopy-$ID-job

BUT every monday the DBCOPY services still run on the First dbcopy, and must be killed. Because it looks like it 'hang' on the
backup off the "OFVIEWS"
This is the logging : Getting ready to copy post office databases...

Start copying files in OFFILES...


User DB Count: 2876 Message DB Count: 255

Start copying databases files in OFUSER...


Start copying databases files in OFMSG...


Start copying databases files in GWDMS...


Start copying miscellaneous files in root directory...


Start copying files in OFViews... (here it stays / hangs)

Termination request received!! (this is what whe do on monday morning...).

Does anyone have this same problems with dbcopy and/or GW8. ?

kind regards,


HKO
