Mounted file system(s) uses log device located on reverting disk

Article ID: SS0003 Revert restore fails for SAP Oracle transactional file system volume when log device used by other file systems are located on reverted volume's physical disk.

Symptom

Revert restore of SAP tranactional volume fails with following logged errors:

CVMA.log on client

 ########## CVSnapOSUtilUNIX::prepareRevert(SMVolSnapInfo &) Added mount path /oracle/*/* to re-mount after revert with device name ''/dev/p093sp3vg2lv20'' and lvdevice ''/dev/p093sp3vg2lv20''

########## CVSnapOSUtilUNIX::prepareRevert(SMVolSnapInfo &) [CVSnapOSUtilUNIX.cpp:5013] Mounted file system(s) uses log device located on reverting disk.

The revert will fail while this file system is mounted.

 

backint_oracle.log on client

CVMMSnapAPI::processVolSnapOperation() - VolSnaps Operation Failed. Status [-1] Err [60655:Mounted file system(s) uses log device located on reverting disk.

The revert will fail while this file system is mounted.]

Cause

Other transactional file systems have log devices located on the physical disk that hosts the volume being reverted. The disk cannot be unmounted for revert restore with volumes still mounted.

Resolution

Relocate (at least temporarily) to another physical disk any or all log devices currently located on the physical disk that is hosting the target volume being reverted.

Relocation must be done before the revert restore can be initiated.
