About pending requests and actions on UNIX/Linux

In the NetBackup Administration Console, expand Media and Device Management > Device Monitor. If requests await action or if NetBackup acts on a request, the Pending Requests pane appears. For example, if a tape mount requires a specific volume, the request appears in the Pending Requests pane. If NetBackup requires a specific volume for a restore operation, NetBackup loads or requests the volume. After all requests are resolved (automatically by NetBackup or manually by operator intervention), the Pending Requests pane disappears.

If NetBackup cannot service a media-specific mount request automatically, it changes the request or action to a pending state.

Table: Pending states

Pending state

Description

Pending request

Specifies that a pending request is for a tape mount that NetBackup cannot service automatically. Operator assistance is required to complete the request. NetBackup displays the request in the Pending Requests pane.

NetBackup assigns pending status to a mount request when it cannot determine the following:

  • Which stand-alone drive to use for a job.

  • Which drive in a robot is in Automatic Volume Recognition (AVR) mode.

Pending action

Specifies that a tape mount request becomes a pending action when the mount operation encounters problems, and the tape cannot be mounted. Operator assistance is required to complete the request, and NetBackup displays an action request in the Pending Requests pane. Pending actions usually occur with drives in robotic libraries.
