Large file move from one server to another

I Have two AIX 5.3 servers. I want to move a 45GB file from Server B to Server A. Can I achieve this with using Tivoli? Or how could I achieve this, by mounting a directory from server B to server A?

Any help apreciated!

Yes, either of these ways would get the file moved to Server A, depending on your Tivoli setup the NFS mount will likely be the slower option.

OK, I will take a look at the NFS mount. Could I do the Tivoli option on the command line or the web interface?

I am sure you can use either interface, I can't give you much guidance on the command line as I use the web interface primarily. If you decide to choose the Tivoli option you will need to make changes to your dsm.sys file for the redirected restore. So backup the file from Server B and then modify the dsm.sys file on Server B so when you attempt the restore it will restore to Server A instead of Server B.

One other thought, depending your network speed I am not sure that you wouldn't be almost as well off using scp with the -C flag (Compression enables) in lieu of NFS. Depending on if the file is already compressed. Your call.

I tared the file and tried to scp the file over but ran into permission issues. The directory that the file sits in is an oracle dir. When I try to run the scp2 command I get the following error:

PHP Code:
scp2warningstatBAN8TEST.tar (src): unspecified failure (server msg'syserr: Value too large to be stored in data type, file: /u02/oradata/BAN8TEST.tar'
I think it's telling me that the destination directory is to small for this file. But the direcory is big enough at least 4x's.

My command:
PHP Code:
scp2 BAN8TEST.tar ServerA:/u02/ban8_dbf

I do not recognize that error. Not sure what scp2 is, maybe scp using protocol 2 or something. I just started at 20Gig scp copy from AIX to AIX and did not get any errors but your doing twice the file so could be a scp limitation. That error doesn't strick me as a ulimit error but double check the ulimit settings for the that FS. If you have time try using bzip2 -9 or gzip to compress the tar ball and then copy it over.

Why not copy the file to a tape or dual layer dvd (assuming the file will compress to 9gb)
