I am currently using Linux RH Advanced Server V2.1 - I got this weird massage saying that the
"cp: cannot stat `./backup/cold/datafile_dir/drsys01.dbf.gz': File name too long"
from a simple copy 'cp' command. Have anyone seen this? Is there a work around for dealing with file name too long in Linux? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated it.
Actually, it was my syntax on the command. I should have used "cp -R ./* /folder/folder1/junk" once I'm in the directory that I was trying to copy from. BTW, the VMS operating system has 256 characters limitation.
