ORA-39000: bad dump file specification

When we take export using datapump, we faced following error:

Connected to: Oracle Database 11g Enterprise Edition Release – 64bit Production
With the Partitioning, Real Application Clusters, Automatic Storage Management, OLAP,
Data Mining and Real Application Testing options
ORA-39001: invalid argument value
ORA-39000: bad dump file specification
ORA-31641: unable to create dump file “/c02/dpdir/ECG_PRESS_NAG.dmp”
ORA-27086: unable to lock file – already in use
Linux-x86_64 Error: 37: No locks available
Additional information: 10


As it has file system lock, it will not allow to take export in that mount.  Select different mount, which is not related NFS or NetappFiler.  Select local file system to take backup.
