SQL> ALTER TABLESPACE USERS BEGIN BACKUP;
SQL> !cp -rp /u01/oradata/PROD/users_01.dbf /u01/backup/PROD/users_01.dbf
cp: /u01/oradata/PROD/users_01.dbf: Invalid argument
Even "compress" command also fails with same error.
However, if the database is shutdown, a cold backup is successful using "cp" commmand without any errors.
Database has been upgraded from 9i to 10g.
