Error description

  • The mksysb displays backup errors on temporary snapshot
    device files when both -T flag (use snapshots) and -e
    flag
     (exclude option) are used. However the mksysb backup
    image is created successfully. The error message is like
    below. The mksysb using either one of them doesn't
    display
     backup errors.

Local fix

  • Ignore the backup errors on temporary snapshot device
    files
    or do not use both -T and -e flags together in single
    mksysb.
