Restore Fails When TSAFS is Set to Netware Mode on a OES11 Server
To resolve the issue, set the parameter tsamode to Linux in the /etc/opt/novell/sms/tsafs.conf file.
During full system restore, smdr crashes and restore fails
SMDR uses dynamically loaded libraries from
folder for restoration. On a running machine, during full restore the entire file system is reloaded this causes SMDR to crash and fails to restore system libraries.
During full system restore, you must restore the system libraries to a non-default path and not to the
folder. At a later time, move the restored libraries to folder when file system is not in use.
Certain files do not get backed up on non-NSS file systems
The connection user might not have access to read the files that are not being backed up.
Connect as a user with higher privileges to back up these files.
These files might have been created using a non-UTF-8 locale. TSAFS uses a UTF-8 locale to work with file names on non-NSS file systems.
Backup or restore hangs on submitting a request
Stale mount points on the Linux server. This causes TSAFS to wait indefinitely on the file system APIs.
Check for stale mount points on the system and fix them by either remounting or unmounting the mount point.
