Hi, My name is Leslie, I have a problem backing up /sys directory. I'm running Linux Enterprise ES ver 4.0 .
I'm using Symantec Backup exec ver 10.d on Windows server 2003 to do the backup (The server is : HP Proliant DL380). I've also installed the Veritas Linux remote agent agent in this server. The backup device which is used is the HP Ultrium LTO2.
My Linux is residing on another HP Proliant DL380 server.
When I backup the Linux server the backup process suddenly terminates when it reaches about 63% complete. The error message is " The media operation was terminated by the user.
After testing several backup jobs I found out that if I skip the /SYS directory in Linux from the backup. The backup will go through without any problems.
I'm not sure if it is normal that the Linux /sys directory cannot be backed-up. Is there any work around to this so that I will be able to backup all the contents of my linux server?
Need your expert advice.
