    Re: Regarding other VG backup in AIX

    Ok, let me guess. You use savevg backup the datavg. I suppose oracle is running. So it has open files. You can expect errors like these.

    savevg is NOT the way to go if you want to make a consistent backup of your database. You should use oracles own tools.

    You can stop your database and then do a savevg. But you probably do not have that downtime on your database.

    Hope this helps
