backup script failed with error '0403-005 Cannot create the specified file'

In AIX 5.1, a daily run script that backing up oracle data failed yesterday with following errors:
The Tivoli backup of DBPROD failed.
Exiting in error with code 99.
A file or directory in the path name does not exist.
/apps/tivoli/dbfiles_dsm.v2[220]: ~oracle/admin/backdbobj.sum: 0403-005 Cannot create the specified file.
There was a problem sending the database backup to Tivoli.
What could be the issue, OS, backup or Oracle?

ENOENT: Perhaps:
  • a mount is failing or
  • something in the path was renamed, or
  • a symbolic link is pointing to a deleted file.
Try running
find ... -follow -ls >/dev/null

and see what in those ... paths is not accessible

Perhaps the script is using "~oracle" to denote oracles home directory, but the script is not running in bash ? many shells do not understand "~"

Right! This sort of error usually prints out an open() compatible path, and open() does not do ~, that is a shell-ism of some shells and other apps, not the UNIX O/S itself.
