savegrp is already running

savegrp is already running

savegrp is already running

A newbie question:

I have only one enabled group, which is scheduled to be run every night. But it only successfully ran once, and the successive runs got the error message:

savegrp is already running

Can anybody tell me what's wrong. Thanks.

RE: savegrp is already running

I don't know what platform you're using (I use NT), but if you check networker administrator and look at your groups, you'll see a clock on your group.  The clock means it's running.  If you right click and look at details you can see what it "thinks" it still needs to backup (incomplete savesets).  I've had this problem backing up SQL servers that we're running at full duplex.  They would give an MMD error and that would hang the job like you are seeing.  Unfortunately you can just rightclick and stop the job, it gives an error (with NT anyway).  Only way to stop it is to restart the networker services on the server.  IF you have another platform, you may have to reboot the server or something.  Hope that helps.

RE: savegrp is already running

If you are running Legato on the Unix platform, check to see if this savegrp is hanging out there are a hung process.  I just had a similar problem, and located the savegrp
process using the ps command, and then killed the PID.  That resolved the problem, and I was able to restart the backup.
