RE: [Info-ingres] gtar failed with exit code 1

/tmp has rwxrwxrwxt on various unix flavours I deal with.
The t - sticky bit allows the owner of files to delete only their own files.

Subject: [Info-ingres] gtar failed with exit code 1


I try to install ingres 2.6 SP2 on Unixware 7.13.
Running install/ingbuild as user ingres will start to unpack the
files, but
suddenly, I get error messages like this:
gtar failed with exit code 1
Unable to delete directory.  Return code: 1

Post to lock : the solution is chmod 777 /tmp
Strange because usually it's 777, and here it was 775   8O

Hi Dennis, You can have your cake and eat it too. Conversion from ABF to n-tiered is relatively easy - it can be automated and it can be cheap.

Simon, I found this interesting as I'm starting to do a bit of Java myself. From what I've found so far it has good and bad points, just like any language. Some lift it above OpenROAD's level and some seem clumsy by comparison but that's probably largely down to my lack of experience with it. I don't agree with your points about getting a button click (simple matter of registering a listener and coding event code for it) or the SQL point. OpenROAD is the only language I've seen where you can put SQL directly into scripts. VB, Perl etc. all require the use ...

[Info-ingres] RE: Info-ingres digest, Vol 1 #374
Hi, With regards to installing ingres patches on windows I've had the same issues but have resolved by doing the following : - Make sure IVM is not running - Make sure no ingres processes are running - Shutdown the following services: IIS WMI COM+ SNMP The only one I couldn't get round recently was the slow_v4.mnx being accessed by another program. I chose to ignore that warning and everything was fine. The slow_v4.mnx file is read by IVM which was shutdown so I didn't see it as a problem. The only other thing that I could think of that was accessing this file was the ingres performance counters. With this being the only problem the patch installed ok with no reported issues. The patching we've done is on Advantage Ingres 2.6 running windows 2000 server...we're at patch level 10797 Hope this helps...

Hi Paul, Thanks for the information! I do have a question: I checkpoint the iidbdb daily with the -d flag, so the journal files don't exist for me that far back (to cover all of 2004). If I weren't using the -d flag, how far back would Ingres track Journal/Checkpoint information? Indefinitely? I have a limited amount of space in my jnl file system, so I doubt I could keep a year's work of jnl files for that database even if I weren't using the -d flag.

[Info-ingres] RES: [Info-ingres] Re: What animal should Ingres be?
Hi Paul, I agree totally with you Ingres needs a promotion strategy (urgently). For me the one of the main issue to try change this "perception" is to promote the use of Ingres for ISVs. There are many of then adapting their software to use open source technology (OS, Database, Development tools, etc.), and this is a great opportunity to grow up the use of Ingres. Here I know around ten software vendors (medium size) which are doing this move. And most of then are moving to use MySQL, PostgreSQL and Firebird. Unhappily, Ingres is so unknown it is not being considered an option. Ahhh, I suggest cheetah. The fastest animal.

Hi Chloe, We used to do exactly this to keep our test server up to date with the data in the live environment. At no time did we intend to use the test server as a hot standby and I wouldn't recommend against it. Maybe ok if you want to allow your users to look at something in read-only mode whilst you recover the live server. It worked fairly well but it wasn't 100% and that's why I wouldn't use it. We've since turned off that functionality but it's nice to know how to do it. I'm with Marty on this one. Get some budget together to either duplicate...

We have been attempting to use one-way Ingres Replication to provide a stand-by database that is as current as possible (at the same transaction level) as the primary database server using immediate Replication Distribution (as opposed to distribution in ten minutes increments or once per day at night). Obviously this is not perfectly possible with Replication - we could always lose the "last" transaction if the network goes down at the exact point between the transaction commit on the primary server and the distribution (a separate transaction) to the target server. We are almost there with the Replication approach (not there yet), currently awaiting a CA Patch that does not take locks on the replication support tables during distribution. Yes, the Replication Server will lock certain tables causing possible conflicts (Deadlocks) with server transactions - conflicts that do not happen when the Replication Server (distribution) process is not running. We have also written an Online Replication Support Table maintenance program that hopefully...

[Info-ingres] RE: Info-ingres digest, Vol 1 #331
Hi, I know most of the people on this list are active on most of the ingres forums and are very well experienced in ingres especially the likes of Karl and Marty :-) Well just to let you know hot of the press is that I've discovered a bug with ingres on the Windows platform, that I'd like to share. It's to do with the checkpoint template and CA have acknowledged this as of yesterday. You will notice a line in the checkpoint template file : $II_SYSTEM\ingres\files\cktmpl.def that reads : WDDD: echo deleting files in location "%D" & del /Q "%D\*.*" The above command is executed by ingres when doing the "rollfowarddb" and the idea is that ingres deletes any files in each data location before restoring the files from the checkpoint. *** this does not happen *** The fix we have put in is to have the following in the $II_SYSTEM\ingres\files\ckcopyd.bat script for the rollforwarddb : REM delete the necessary files in the location before doing the restore excluding the .cnf, .rfc and .ali files REM as these are automatically handled by ingres. IMPORTANT if all files are selected for deletion REM in the location then the rollforward will fail as ingres first renames aaaaaaaa.cnf to REM aaaaaaaa.rfc so removing any of these files via script will cause issues with the rollforward del /Q "%1\*.t*" ************** note the above goes in the section labelled "per...
