BACKUP and INVATTVAL Invalid Attribute?

» close window

The Question is:

The system disk on my DS10 is 72GB and the cluster size is 137. I want to
 change this to a value of 51. So I did an image backup of the system disk,
 then initialized the system disk with a cluster size of 51 and then tried to
 restore my image onto the sys
tem disk using the /noinitialize qualifier. This gives the error message
 "invalid attribute record value in saveset"
It works if I make the cluster size 131 but any less than that I get the above
Thanks for any help.

The Answer is :

  Please contact the customer support center as details of the
  commands used will be of interest.
  BACKUP/IMAGE to create a saveset
  INITIALIZE with appropriate cluster factor, headers, etc
  The error message implies a problem with BACKUP or within
  the saveset itself, or a corruption underneath the savset.
 INVATTVAL,  invalid attribute record value in save set
  Facility:     BACKUP, Backup Utility
  Explanation:  An incorrect value occurred in a save-set attribute record.
                Data in the save set is corrupt.
  User Action:  None. Save-set data has been lost.
