IC65242: DOMINO SERVER MAY NOT RESTART AFTER A FASTBACK BACKUP

Domino, Fatsback, Info Comments Off on IC65242: DOMINO SERVER MAY NOT RESTART AFTER A FASTBACK BACKUP

Error description

  • When backing up a Domino Database using one of the scripts
    provided with the SW, FastBack will wait for the Domino server
    to notify it that the database is stopped.
    In some cases, a delay between the time when the Domino server
    has stopped and the actual change of the data base to a stopped
    state can cause the system to try and restart the Domino
    database prematurely and eventually a failure to restart the
    Domino server will occur.

     

  • Local fix

  • Use updated scripts

  • Problem conclusion

  • Background: When backing up a Domino Database using one of the
    scripts provided with the SW, FastBack will wait for the
    Domino server to notify it that the database is stopped. In
    some cases, a delay between the time when the Domino server
    has stopped and the actual change of the data base to a
    stopped state can cause the system to try and restart the
    Domino database prematurely and eventually a failure to
    restart the Domino server will occur.Fix: The scripts that are responsible for domino server
    restart modified to fix the problem. 

  • Temporary fix
