[farmshare-discuss] DBMSCOPY functioning problem

Hi Weiqi,

I've never heard of DBMS/COPY and a Google search suggests the program 
is obsolete:

Though I do see we have /usr/sweet/bin/dbmscopy, last updated Sept 2008.

Perhaps you can try using the program Stat/Transfer instead?

Something like:

[chekh at] ~ [0]
$ module load StatTransfer-11.2

[chekh at] ~ [0]
$ st --version
Stat/Transfer (c) 1986-2012 Circle Systems, Inc.
Version 11.2.2013.0330 - 64 Bit Linux

User:	Jane Tansuwan - Stanford University
License Type:	Linux - 50 User Workgroup / Lease
Status:	License OK - Expires April 30, 2013

[chekh at] ~ [0]
$ module help StatTransfer-11.2
Module Specific Help for 

	 ITS-maintained Stat/Transfer v11.2 (in GlusterFS)
	 use st for command-line version
	 use stattransfer for X11 GUI version
