    Hi Team,

    I am trying to take offline backup of spectrum DB using SSdbsave -cm command by stopping spectro server.But getting the below error. Please suggest.



    The following output is intended to facilitate debugging, please forward

    to CA technical support.  The files listed are not part of the customer

    installation of SPECTRUM.


    Dec 13 14:38:27 ERROR TRACE at CsSSDbRp.cc(658): table open failed  @  TableImpl.cc:661

          (0x2)  Db::open: No such file or directory

     SPC-DBS-20095: ./SSdbsave Error:  Unable to open database.

    The command must be run from the $SPECROOT/SS directory

    cd to the $SPECROOT/SS directory and enter the command:

    ../SS-Tools/SSdbsave -mc my_backup_file_name

    Hi Joe,

    Thanks for the update. I have completed successfully. Find the output.

    [installSP@gvecsl6621ipm SS]$ ../SS-Tools/MapUpdate -v
    Connecting to Location Server running at: gvecsl6621ipm port 0xdaff

    Landscape Service Type Name Hostname Port Precedence Notes
    ---------- ------------------ ------------------------------ ------ ---------- ------------------
    0x1000000 Events gvecsl6621ipm 0xbafe 10 16M model mask
    0x1000000 Landscape gvecsl6621ipm 0xbeef 20 16M model mask
    0x1000000 Landscape gvecsl6620ipm 0xbeef 10 16M model mask

    But one doubt I have , gvecsl6620ipm is my location server but if you see the out it showing gvecsl6621ipm is location server and events also pointing to gvecsl6621ipm which is secendary spectrum server.

    Is this a concern?

    That is correct.
