tar error "Error exit delayed from previous errors"
I use tar to backup my 9G data on Redhat 7.3 box, I take backup on tape drive(/dev/st1).
At the end of the tar, tar spits out following messages.
/bin/tar: home/perforce/log/journal: file changed as we read it
/bin/tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
The 1st error is explainable, that is "journal" file migh have got changed during backingup, however I am not sure about second message. So I tried resporing the backup on a temporary location and randomly selected few directories and file to varify. The backup seems to be fine, however I didnt varified whole 9G data.
is it safe to ignore this error message?
What is this mesage means?
Any of your reply will be greatly appreciated.
