Every now and then I have the problem, that on one machine the backup is not working. The error from dbbackup 22.214.171.1246 reads:
Error writing backup file "Invalid argument" Attempted two active database requests Database backup failed
From the runtime I assume that more or less the database backup process is at the end, maybe working on the transaction log file. Filesystem is in good shape and having still enough spare space.
The only parameters used to start dbbackup are -x -y -o and -c (of course)
Any idea, what might cause this cryptic error message?
