If you are not already using the save_restoreSet_NFSHost() command,
I highly recommend it.|
We here at the APS had a lot of autosave problems with VxWorks based
IOCs having stale file handles.
This was resolved when Tim Mooney added the
save_restoreSet_NFSHost() command to the autosave module.

As it turns out, this error was caused by a broken NFS mount at the IOC.
The problem has been solved. There were some questions about OS version,
and NFS version..
RedHat Enterprise Linux 6.6 (32 bit)
NFS package version 3.2.29 (the ioc connects using nfs V3)
Thanks for the help!

Here in SLAC, we faced the same problem but under Linux. We first ran the
IOC with user1, generating autosave files with user1 as owner and next,
we ran it with user2. The result was that on the second time, autosave
tried to fchmod a file as user2, having user1 as the owner of the file,
what is not allowed in Linux, and probably in your NFS server.
If you change the owner of your autosave files, probably you will not see
the messages anymore.
Even having this solution, I see 2 improvement opportunities here:
1 - autosave is changing file permissions by default and does this
silently. I think this should be an option to be chosen by the IOC
2 - autosave shows error -1 and this can be anything. There is no way to
diagnose what is going on.
I am working on a patch with some suggestions to address this, and I will
make a GitHub pull request soon.
I don't have experience with VxWorks, but maybe it can work for you,
Greg. For now, if you want to build autosave without the need of changing
file permissions, you can:
- modify asApp/src/Makefile, adding:
USR_CPPFLAGS += -DSET_FILE_PERMISSIONS=0
- modify asApp/src/save_restore.c, changing:
#define SET_FILE_PERMISSIONS 1
