Sometimes it is not possible to delete / remove SRTs and Boot servers using the Netbackup Admin console / Java console.
Corruption of the BMR database
Remove the BMR Shared Resource Tree (SRT) using bmrpans:
<install_path>\NetBackup\bin\bmrs -o query -r database -table srt
<install_path>\NetBackup\bin\bmrs -o querytree -r database -table srt -id <ID_of_SRT> -gui > removesrt.xml
<install_path>\NetBackup\bin\bmrpans -op load -type delete -in removesrt.xml
From the BMR Master obtain the IDs of all BMR Boot Servers using bmrs. This command will display the BootServer table from the BMR database (BootServer is case sensitive):
<install_path>\NetBackup\bin\bmrs -o querytree -r database -table BootServer -id 1 -gui > removebootserver.xml
<install_path>\NetBackup\bin\bmrpans -op load -type delete -in removebootserver.xml
The database can be initialized to a state that is new by running this command
All clients will register with BMR on the next backup where the option to collect BMR information is marked.
BMR Boot Servers can be registered by running:
Shared Resource Tree (SRT) definitions can be imported back into the BMRDB by using the appropriate Boot Server utility.
For Windows Boot Servers, you will use the Boot Server Assistant. Specify the Shared Resource Tree Administration Wizard and choose the option “Copy or Import a Shared Resource Tree”. Follow the proper prompts. The path information is the same as for Unix SRT files.
As data is import into the BMRDB, it will become visible to users through the NetBackup Administration console.
