Re: Regarding other VG backup in AIX2012-11-10T06:58:08Z in response to SystemAdminOk, 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
