Print() on Closed File Handle...message

Postby MNcamper » Fri Aug 27, 2010 3:51 pm

I am getting the following message near the end of a backup:
print() on closed file handle TC at /opt/ping/ line 3529.

I searched this forum for the message text but it was not found.
This leads me to suspect that this may be the first report of this problem.

DELL Studio 1747

Boot to PING from CD created from PING-3.00.iso
[PING Community Edition release 3.00.03 2009-08-01, with kernel]

PING options selected:
local disk/partition
sdb1 [partition to backup]
sda3 [image destination]
ping_20100826 [image folder name]
yes [record file info for future incremental backups]
no [don't minimize]

The last time I saw PING acting normally it was at 71% complete.
When I came back 30 minutes later, the screen was displaying the message above in an infinite loop.
I repeated the same steps above and got the same messages each of two times.

Since PING has no verify function that I am aware of, I do not know if the files output from PING are complete and uncorrupted.
I should add that I have run PING several times to successful completion - the only difference being that the successful runs selected NO to the question about

recording file info for future incremental backups.

I am looking to members of this forum to let me know of a fix or a workaround for this situation.

Thank you,
