Unable to perform backup of EV data when a port has been specified for the SQL Server connection.
NetBackup status code 130
This issue is due to how the SQLServer entry in the EnterpriseVaultDirectory database is being added to the XML file. This entry will include the port number and this is being used as the server name which will cause the connection to to the SQL server to fail.
If a port number is required for the SQL server connection, and has been configured in EV, then the following should be performed to ensure the EVBackup.xml file contains the correct SQLServer entry. This will allow the backup agent to read the name properly so that the backup does not fail on the communication to the SQL server.
1. Locate the EVBackup.xml file. Located in the <Install_path>\Enterprise Vault\Reports folder on the EV server by default.
2. Open the file in a text editor and modify ALL SQLServer values so that they do not include the port number.
<DataRepository Component="Directory" Type="SQLDatabase" SQLServer="evsql\inst1,1458" DatabaseName="EnterpriseVaultDirectory" />
<DataRepository Component="Directory" Type="SQLDatabase" SQLServer="evsql\inst1" DatabaseName="EnterpriseVaultDirectory" />
3. Save the file.
4. Right-click the file and choose Properties.
5. On the General tab select the Read-only option and click OK to save the changes.
Note: If there are changes to the EV environment, a new vault store or index location added, then the EVBackup.xml must be updated using the following procedures.
1. Rename the EVBackup.xml file to EVBackup.xml.old in the <Install_path>\Enterprise Vault\Reports folder.
2. Run the following command from a command prompt on the EV server to recreate the EVBackup.xml file with the additional information.
sc control EnterpriseVaultAdminservice 136
3. Repeat steps 1 - 5 above to ensure the SQLServer entry is correct in the newly created file.
