Patch level detected:Dollar Universe 6.0.00
Product Version: Dollar.Universe 6.0.0

Description :Autopatch does not work and the unibackup can not end.
Environment:
OS: IBM AIX
OS Version: all AIX
Cause:
Cause type:
Configuration
Root Cause: The error comes from the tar command that could not go through because the backup file .tar reached the 2GB limit of the filesystem type JFS on AIX.
Resolution:
Create a link that points the folder backup to another folder on a filesystem JFS2 that allows the creation of files bigger than 2GB.

For example:
Let's say we will link to the directory /destination

1. We backup the existing backup folder:

mv backup backup.bak

2. We create a symbolic link that points backup to /destination:

ln -s /destination backup

3. We check that the link has been correctly created by doing an ls on the company directory:

root@frstaix532:/apps/du/600/CIFEXP_bddprod#ls -ltra
...
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root system 4 Sep 26 10:18 backup -> /destination

4. Relaunch the autopatch, this time the backup will be correctly generated on the JFS2 filesystem.
