Error



The client cannot be made current. It is not a valid client name for backups.


Solution



When attempting to make a client current under "Specify NetBackup machines" in the Backup, Archive, and Restore window, an error occurs (Figure 1).

Figure 1
 

This occurs when a window has been opened in the Backup, Archive, and Restore window with a folder list (Figure 2).

Figure 2
 

To resolve the error, close the window with the folder list by clicking on the X (Figure 3).

Figure 3
 

This will give an empty gray background (Figure 4).

It will now be possible to select and make current another client.
