Permissions error/NodeInfo Failed.

Recommended Posts

I am currently working on an 18 LTO4 tape restoration. While working on parts of the restoration, I've run into the following error multiple times:

 

*File "/Volumes/TetroMedia/Tetro Video/Wanka Drive Backup/VFX Wanka Mattes/VFX 359 Matte/._VFX_359_Matte_00574.dpx": can't write, error -1,017 (insufficient permissions)

    FScSetWhichNodeInfo: USetWhichNodeInfo failed: -5,000

    FScSetWhichNodeInfo: USetWhichNodeInfo failed: -5,000

 

I've been doing restores in chunks of about 3TB at a time. While majority of files (often about 500k+) are restoring fine, about 25-50k files per restoration are running into this error.

 

I do not know the details of the original LTO backup, as it happened about 10 years ago.

 

The system I am running is Mac OSX 10.10.5 running Retrospect 13.0.1.

Is "TetroMedia" a network volume? Then the user used to access (log into) that volume doesn't have enough permissions.

 

Is "TetroMedia" a local volume? (USB, Firewire or Thunderbolt) Then it is the logged in (Mac) user that doesn't have enough permissions to write the files.

TetroMedia is a raid that was backed up on LTO4 back in 2008 or 2009 (before my time at the company). I don't know the actual details of the files on the set. It is running through an LTO deck plugged into the mac via thunderbolt. Same as we've used on all of our other restorations. I've been trying to run the restore onto fresh newly formatted harddrives. The mac is set up with full administrative privileges.

 

I'm not sure what is the problem with this situation.

What if you in the Finder tries to write a file (copy) into the same folder? ("File "/Volumes/TetroMedia/Tetro Video/Wanka Drive Backup/VFX Wanka Mattes/VFX 359 Matte/._VFX_359_Matte_00574.dpx")

Do you get any errors?
