Nueric Log Archiving Error


I am using 6.0.2 with Dual IMS Servers.

Archiving of logs works in IMS1 Server by Manual and Scheduled Archiving without any erros in both OWN IMS Node and Backup Path given in NAS Drive.

But when same procedure i followed for IMS2 Server, but getting "Error ha= - 127 performing achive.HA_FAILURE" while doing Manual Archive from Archive Group.And also Schedule archive fails for same IMS2 Logs.


1) Restart of Archive Service of IMS2

2) Restart of Server.

3) Recreated Archive Group and Intilaized the Group and Volumes again.

4) State of Archive Group logs shows as "Init".

So please let me know if any other options to fix the issue so that i can run Archive successfully.

Thanks in Advance!..

No such product called IMS. ABB once had a product called Advant Station 500 Series IMS which was sold in 1990-1998.

Question here is: do you use Information Manager (IM) or 800xA History?

Correct names makes it all easier to work with... not to mention to search for...

Share the Archive log files "ArchiveAction" and "ArchiveService" from

C:\ProgramData\ABB\IM\History\log on IM server
