Error description

  • When performing PSM export (onsmsync -E) of a backup created on
    cloud storage, e.g. Amazon S3, the subsequent import (onsmsync
    -I) would fail with messages like these in the bar_act.log:
    
     Importing PSM object
    rootdbs:/psm/export/path/prefix/dbservername/rootdbs/0
     XBSA Error: (BSACreateObject) That object already exists.
    
    PSM export/import hinges on a file export.bom created by the
    export, under the 'prefix' directory, which would tell the
    import what objects to import.
    Looking at that bom (bill of materials) file under such failure
    conditions would show most dbspace objects with multiple
    identical lines instead of only once, plus maybe some truncated
    lines.
    

Local fix

  • A workaround for this problem would be manually editing the file
    weeding out all duplicate and incomplete lines.
