Data backup to tape fails with: tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

Problem

  • Data backup to tape fails with tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors.
/mithi/mcs/modules/mithi-system/admin/bl/bin/databackupEX.sh: line 123:  /bin/sh: Argument list

Cause

  • Filepath on the tape cannot exceed 128 characters. When a consolidated mailstore backup is taken to a tape this limit may be exceeded. The tar command then returns an error.

Solution

  • Turn off consolidated backup option from the backup configuration.
