Issue



Under specific conditions bpverify can fail with a status 191. The conditions are:

1) Media server reading the backup image must be different than master server (i.e. a network socket connection between bptm and bpbrm)

2) Media server must be unix.

3) Client must be unix.

4) A filename in the backup selection must contain an unprintable character, such as "^M" (control-M).
