NB 5.1GA Pack NB_51_4_M README                                 November 21, 2005
Requirement: NB_CLT_51_4_M
================================================================================
This Maintenance Pack provides fixes for VERITAS NetBackup (tm) UNIX servers.
NetBackup UNIX Add-on products, Database Agents and Java GUI have separate
Maintenance Packs.

Symantec recommends that the backing up of active file systems be avoided,
or the use of snapshot technologies be implemented. The directory structure
reported back from the file system (to NetBackup) may not contain all of the
files available during the time of backup. NetBackup will not report errors
in many cases where the file's existence is not known to NetBackup as reported
by the file system.


================================================================================

II.  KNOWN ISSUES
==================
Description:
   Solaris 10 is now supported as follows:

   Hardware        Support
   ---------------------------------------------
   SPARC           NetBackup Server and Client
   Intel x86       NetBackup Client

   The above support is for base OS support only.  With NetBackup 5.1 MP2,
   the "Zones" or "Containers" feature introduced in Solaris 10 is not
   supported.  NetBackup is supported on a system pruning global zone
   only, any additional local zones or containers are not supported at
   this time.

   The support of NetBackup Client for Solaris 10 x86 on AMD Opteron
   servers is not supported with NetBackup 5.1 MP2, but the support may
   be announced at a later time based on successful test results.

   Use of NetBackup Advanced Client methods are supported on Solaris 10
   beginning with VERITAS Storage Foundation Suite version 4.1 releasing
   in 2005.  Check the Sun/VERITAS web-site for availability.

   Solaris 10 is not supported on the base CD-ROM version of NetBackup 5.1.
   There are known connection and Java GUI issues that will be encountered
   if you attempt to run the NetBackup 5.1 GA version on Solaris 10.  This
   is due to a new inetd design method introduced in Solaris 10.  
   Therefore, this NetBackup 5.1 MP2 patch update must be applied.
   
   The following script must be run after this patch is installed in order
   for "Solaris Solaris 10" or "Solaris Solaris_x86_10" to show as a client
   selection in the drop down list for backup policies:

   /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/goodies/new_clients

   Upon running this script, Solaris 10 choices will be available in the
   drop-down menu for Solaris 10 clients.


===============================
III. INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
===============================

For Maintenance Pack installation on a UNIX Cluster Environment:

NOTE: Click on the "Download Now" link, near the bottom of this document
prior to running the following installation procedure for this pack.

1) Ensure that prior to installing the maintenance pack, NetBackup is at
  release level 5.1 and configured to run in a cluster.

2) Freeze the NetBackup group (This will avoid a 'failover' during a patch
  installation).

3) Install this Maintenance Pack on the inactive node(s) of the cluster
  (follow steps 1-3 below).

4) Install this Maintenance Pack on the active node of the cluster (follow
  steps 1-3 below).

5) Unfreeze the NetBackup group.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There are two ways to install the client maintenance pack software.

1. Remote Installation:  Loads the software on a master server with the intent
   of pushing client software out to affected clients.

2. Local Installation:   Loads and installs the software only to this local
   machine.

Remote client install:

As root on the NetBackup Master Server:

1) This pack contains a full release of the IBMzSeriesLinux 2.4.21 client.  To
  install, you must first create the following directory:

       mkdir /usr/openv/netbackup/client/Linux/IBMzSeriesLinux2.4.21

  If you intend to install the Encryption libraries for this client type,
  you must create the following directory:

       mkdir /usr/openv/netbackup/crypt/Linux/IBMzSeriesLinux2.4.21

2) Install NB_51_4_M and NB_CLT_51_4_M Maintenance Pack binaries.

       cd /tmp
       /bin/sh Vrts_pack.install

3) Restart daemons.

       /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/initbprd
       /usr/openv/volmgr/bin/ltid -v

4) Update the NetBackup clients with the update_clients script.

       /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/update_clients <hardware> <os>

       where <hardware> <os> is one of the following:
           ALPHA OSF1_V5
           HP9000-700 HP-UX11.00
           HP9000-800 HP-UX11.00
           HP9000-700 HP-UX11.11
           HP9000-800 HP-UX11.11
           Linux IBMzSeriesLinux2.4
           Linux IBMzSeriesLinux2.4.21
           INTEL  FreeBSD4.5
           Linux  RedHat2.4
           MACINTOSH MacOSXS10.2
           RS6000 AIX4.3.3
           RS6000 AIX5
           SCO UnixWare7.1
           SGI IRIX65
           Solaris Solaris7
           Solaris Solaris8
           Solaris Solaris9
           Solaris Solaris10 *
           Solaris Solaris_x86_7
           Solaris Solaris_x86_8
           Solaris Solaris_x86_9
           Solaris Solaris_x86_10 *

           * - For "Solaris Solaris10" or "Solaris Solaris_x86_10" to show when
               configuring clients into a backup policy, the following must be
               executed on the server:

                    /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/goodies/new_clients


      Note: The /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/update_clients command without
            any parameters will update all the UNIX clients.
           
      Note: When updating an RS6000 client, there may be circumstances
            where update_clients will fail with an error similar to
            this:

            Couldn't open /usr/openv/lib/libVmangle.so on client
            Client open errno = 26

            If this happens, execute /usr/sbin/slibclean on the client
            to be updated and re-run update_clients.

If the client (CLT) .Z file and README exist in the installation
directory during the installation of the server maintenance pack,
the Vrts_pack.install script will install the client maintenance
pack automatically.  The client maintenance pack will NOT be
installed automatically during a reinstall of the server
maintenance pack.  

Additional Notes:

If non-root administrators use the GUI only, the nonroot_admin
script no longer needs to be run.  If the non-root administrators
use the command line or bpadm, the group and file permissions
will have to be changed manually on the NetBackup binaries.
Users can write their own script.  The script is being phased
out because there is a slight security risk that non-root users
may be able to execute NetBackup commands only because those users
are part of a group that is allowed to execute NetBackup commands.

For "Solaris Solaris10" to show when configuring clients into a backup
policy, the following command must be executed:

  /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/goodies/new_clients



Local client install:

The install script will determine if a local client install is appropriate
and choose the appropriate client type to install.

As root on the NetBackup client:

1) Install NB_CLT_51_4_M Maintenance Pack binaries.

      cd /tmp
      /bin/sh Vrts_pack.install

  NOTE: It is not possible to install the new Linux client
        (LinuxIBMzSeriesLinux 2.4.21) locally.  It must be installed on the
        Master server and pushed to the client.


===========================
IV. UNINSTALL INSTRUCTIONS
===========================
Note:  This will ONLY uninstall the Maintenance Pack from your local machine.

   1) Close the NetBackup user interfaces.

       Make sure the NetBackup server has no active jobs running (for
       example, backups, restores, or duplications).

       If a database agent is being used, such as Oracle,
       ensure that the database services are stopped.

   2) Change directory to the patch save directory.  
       Substitute the pack name for ${PACK} in the following command:

          cd /usr/openv/pack/${PACK}/save

   3) Run the un-install script:

         ./Vrts_pack.uninstall

   4) Verify that the pack uninstalled successfully by checking
       /usr/openv/pack/pack.history.

   5) If update_clients was run after the pack was originally INSTALLED,
       run it again after that pack is successfully UNINSTALLED.

   6) If necessary, restart the NetBackup and Media Manager daemons:
       /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/goodies/netbackup start

================================================================================
Etrack Incident = ET342058

Description:
   If a machine has NetBackup and a Maintenance Pack (MP) installed, and an
   uninstall is performed of the MP that requires a reboot, and NetBackup is
   uninstalled before the reboot, the DLL named msvcp70.dll is removed.  The
   installer has been modified to ignore MFC DLL in the Windows system32
   folder.

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, perform a reboot when you are requested after first
   uninstalling the MP and before you uninstall NetBackup.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET263530

Description:
   For Solaris10, a change needed to be made to make sure that /etc/services
   was updated before inetd.conf.  This was only an issue on UNIX servers and
   only if YP was not configured.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET312135

Description:
   NetBackup 5.1 clusters need to be aware of NetBackup Operations Manager.
   Without this patch NetBackup Operations Manager will not work in a
   NetBackup 5.1 cluster.  

Workaround:
   The user could add the following lines to
   /usr/openv/netbackup/cluster<cluster_platform>/<platform>_NBU_RSP.
   
   DIR=var mkdir
   DIR=var/global mv
   LINK=var/global
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET374817

Description:
   A user currently cannot enter more than 99 dates into a calendar
   schedule.  To resolve this issue, increase the size of some of the arrays.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET354621

Description:
   DSSU relocation would fail after upgrading to NetBackup 50_MP5 or 51_MP3.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET341834

Description:
   Disk Staging cleanup was not occurring, nor was it notifying the user
   quickly enough if the Disk Staging Unit was a NAS mounted file system.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET346373 ET366137 ET322959

Description:
   Corrected the display of new ACS vendor media types T10000T1, T10000TS,
   and T10000CT.  In addition, corrected the allowable types that ACS vendor
   media type LTO_400G.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET361923

Description:
   Some character sets do not support upper case even though the underlying
   language does.  This caused some wildcard constructs to fail because the
   upper and lower cases were not distinguishable.  

Workaround:
   To resolve this issue, the wildcard constructs were reworked so [] and '-'
   could not be used with upper and lower case.
   
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET325076

Description:
   Backups of NetLink 2.x and higher files failed.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET311173 ET223766

Description:
   If the add_slave_on_clients command is unable to add the media server
   entries to one client, it may incorrectly update the media servers on
   subsequent clients.  Typically, only one media server will be added to
   the remaining clients.  

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, perform one of the following two work-arounds:
   
   - Use the Host Properties interface to update the server list for
     the clients.
   - Use the bpsetconfig admincmd to update the server list for the clients.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET364429

Description:
   ** A stack trace showed that bpbrm was in the exit() system call, causing
   bpbrm to dump core.  This does not affect backups or restores.
   
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET336219

Description:
   The removal of a copy of a backup image was not occurring when the copy
   expired.  This occurred when the operating system was Linux and the file
   system (where the NetBackup database resided) was VxFS.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET355614

Description:
   If a backup is being run on an NFS file system and the NFS server is down,
   the backup would hang.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET342043 ET207782

Description:
   Restoring a large number of Windows files to UNIX would lead to being
   overwhelmed with .SeCuRiTy files. (These files are from the Windows
   security data that is invalid for UNIX.)
   
   In addition, a Windows to UNIX restore did not indicate success because
   of a failure to restore the Windows security data to UNIX.

Workaround:
   To avoid these issues, do not restore Windows files to UNIX, and if you do
   attempt to do this, make sure you clean up the .SeCuRiTy* files.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET352808 ET343561

Description:
   Reverse host name lookup is required for outgoing NetBackup connections.  
   With this patch, outgoing connections from NetBackup servers that are not
   configured for NBAC will not require reserve host name lookup.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET366163 ET355610

Description:
   In certain firewall configurations, multistream backups from a Linux
   client may fail with a status 25 if the vnetd connect-back is used.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET326978

Description:
   After getting a, "client hostname could not be found" error, communication
   between bpbrm and bpsched would fail. The bpbrm log contained the following
   messages:
   
   18:08:51.752 [24593] <2> put_strlen_str: cannot write data to network: Bad
   file number (9)
   18:08:51.752 [24593] <16> bpbrm send_parent_msg: could not write
   COMPLETE_MOUNT V02107 0 message to stderr  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET316059

Description:
   Resumed restore from a number of images that involved a number of tapes
   fails with the following error messages in the bprd log:
   
   01:27:54.837 [557110] <2> put_length_bytes_nonblocking: cannot write data
   to network: There is no process to read data written to a pipe. (32)
   01:27:54.837 [557110] <2> write_files_to_active_sockets: Could not write
   to file list socket 9 - connection dropped or not connected. Errno = 32:
   There is no process to read data written to a pipe.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET341332

Description:
   If using Multiple Data Streams, there would possibly be a long delay in
   scheduling jobs.  The bpsched log would show many hosts_equal calls that
   were contributing to the delay.
   
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET330685

Description:
   Canceling a queued Vault job caused all backups to cancel.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET321736

Description:
   The use of a closed socket error message was filling the scheduler log.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET322851 ET322817

Description:
   When a server includes multiple network interfaces and is configured for
   NBAC, other NetBackup machines may reject connections from the server
   with authorization failures.  This patch insures that the server presents
   the correct credential to the other NetBackup machines.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET336943

Description:
   A user backup could not be cancelled using the Activity Monitor.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET347554

Description:
   On Windows platforms only: The scheduler would enter an infinite loop after
   A read message queue failure occurred.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET349783

Description:
   The scheduler would enter an infinite loop if all of the following
   occurred:
   
   - The backup is checkpoint enabled.
   - The backup is twinning.
   - One of the twined copies failed.
   - The non-failed copy exits with a failure status.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET310386

Description:
   Previously, there was a logic error that prevented customers from using
   cluster_config -r to add robots for monitoring. This patch fixes the error.

Workaround:
   The avoid this issue, add the name of the robotic daemon directly to the
   PROBE_PROCS line in the <platform> _RSP file.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET363305

Description:
   Adding a job to a multiplex group failed to check if a HOLD_134 exists on
   the multiplex storage unit. This resulted in excessive 134 status backups.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET366178

Description:
   Field 11, of the 'bpdbjobs -all' output, did not reflect the correct end
   time of the last try.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET314632

Description:
   A change has been made so the scheduler will no longer dump core.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET325883

Description:
   The Activity Monitor would continuously display 'positioning' for
   multi-fragment backups.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET316646

Description:
   The scheduler performance suffered if the media server connection is
   intermittent.  The problem is aggravated when schedule continuously polls
   the media server for NetBackup version information.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET352026

Description:
   If an attempt to create a binary .f file is done with file entries without
   user or group data, the attempt would fail but leave a zero-length .f
   file.  This caused a subsequent attempt to create the .f file in ASCII
   format.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET315664

Description:
   If you attempt to perform a cat_convert on an image where the policy name
   contains a period (or full-stop) and the letter [f] follows immediately
   after the period (or full stop), then the cat_convert says the file does
   not exist.

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, do not create policies with names that contain ".f".
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET311559 ET316451

Description:
   Backup jobs with multiple streams where the individual stream selections
   start with the same path can produce image files which, when browsed, do no
   list all of the files in the backup.
   
   Also, .f files created in NetBackup 4.5 versions for non-standard,
   non-Windows clients may not show all files in the backup when browsed
   under NetBackup 5.1.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET315663

Description:
   Policy names containing ".f" cause premature EOF on Full TIR Backups on
   the first try of jobid and when following an incremental.  

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, do not use policy names that contain ".f".
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET375771

Description:
   If many Flashbackup images are created using an ASCII image format,
   cleanup fails with the message, "too many open files".  

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, use the binary .f file format to create the
   Flashbackup images.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET371664

Description:
   The synthetic backup process would begin reading the wrong block number
   from tape during the synthetic backup image creation, causing the
   synthetic backup to fail.  This would happen when there was more than
   one tape drive available to read the component images.
   
   The following sample log message is a symptom of this failure:
   
   bptm 12090 first XFERBLOCK indicated block number of 478341120 but initial
   positioning was for block 193352448
   
   This message indicates an, “unexpected block number read,” will be seen in
   both the job details for the synthetic backup job, and in the bptm log.
   

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, down drives so that only two drives are available for
   creating the synthetic backup - one drive for reading and one drive for
   writing.
   
   After the synthetic backup job mounts the first volume to be read and
   mounts the volume to be written, you can safely increase the number
   of “up” drives.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET380235

Description:
   If the NOexpire touch file was set, then the NetBackup database image
   cleanup was disabled.  However, media would still expire.  The media no
   longer expires if the NOexpire touch file is set.  
   Bpexpdate -deassignempty, which deassigns media if there are no
   corresponding images in the image database, is disabled.
   
   The NOexpire touch file is set in the following locations:
   
   For UNIX:
   /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/NOexpire
   
   For Windows:
   VERITAS\NetBackup\Bin\NOexpire  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET355414 ET499608

Description:
   Synthetic Backup would produce an image that contains only the last
   Incremental if a previous full synthetic backup (from incremental backups)
   was manually expired.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET314637 ET405575

Description:
   "bpdbm -consistency" failed to move out corrupted image files in
   "catstore".  It also failed to move out the zero byte image files
   (which should have been handled by cleanup but it also failed).  

Additional Notes:
   On UNIX platforms, “bpdbm consistency” failed to move out the corrupted
   image files if /usr/openv/netbackup/db and
   /usr/openv/netbackup/db/images/<client> were not on the same volume. In
   such case, the corrupted image files will be left to their original
   locations.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET379404

Description:
   The C_GET_HOSTINFO bprd request (from bpgetconfig -g for example) would
   fail if there was not a cipher file on the client/host requested.
   
   To avoid this issue, make sure a non-empty string is passed between the
   dbmisc APIs, bprd, and bpgetconfig for the cipher list even if encryption
   is not configured on the client.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET365011

Description:
   When a C_GET_HOSTINFO request is made from a pre-NetBackup 6.0
   installation, the [expected] request type and client name are appended to
   the MAGIC string.  For NetBackup 6.0 and later, these two fields are sent
   separately.  Infer the level of the requestor by counting the MAGIC string
   arguments, and retrieve the type and client name accordingly.  Once
   inferred, ensure that the 'acks' that are sent to the requestor are in
   synch with the requestor’s expectations.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET378815

Description:
   The scheduler predict was not functioning correctly. The input date was
   decremented so that it never exceeded the current date.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET371647

Description:
   An XBSA application would hang during a shared memory backup (such as, the
   client and the media server are the same machine) if a problem occurred
   that caused the bptm to exit. The BSASendData() call did not return.

Etrack Incident = ET323264

Description:
   bprd could not clean a vault session directory that contains files larger
   than 2 Gigabytes.

Additional Notes:
   To resolve this issue, use lstat64() for LARGEFILES platforms in the
   recursive_dir_delete() function.  Used primarily by bprd for periodic
   deletion of log files (and vault session files)... and by bpdbm for
   removing expired back-ups.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET386569

Description:
   Schedules that specify "instant recovery" should not have backups that
   multi-stream.  It is possible that a policy may try to multi-stream in
   the following circumstances:
   - Frozen image enabled.
   - PFI enabled.
   - Multi-streaming enabled.
   - Policy contains schedules with instant recovery enabled.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET313352

Description:
   Disk staging only submits one duplication job at a time so it was unable
   to make use of idle tape drives.  

Additional Notes:
   Up to four bpduplicate jobs are submitted at a time. The duplication jobs
   contain images grouped into jobs of 25 Gigabytes. By creating files named
   MAX_STAGING_JOBS and STAGING_JOB_KB_LIMIT in the NetBackup directory on the
   master server, these defaults can be adjusted as needed. For the
   STAGING_JOB_KB_LIMIT, the value is in kilobytes and the default is 26214400
   (25 gigabytes). A smaller value causes more jobs to be submitted, but
   there will only be MAX_STAGING_JOBS running at a time.

Etrack Incident = ET373913

Description:
   The TPC selection process does not allow for selecting parallel mover
   devices when available to improve performance and when multiple backups
   are active.  

Additional Notes:
   This path adds a "GROUP" keyword in mover.conf. The GROUP keyword has a
   parameter that is the name of a file in /usr/openv/volmgr/database that has
   a list of mover devices that have the same capability. Each bptm that
   executes the GROUP keyword will select the next device in the file in a
   round robin fashion. A separate file is maintained to keep track of the
   next device index.

Etrack Incident = ET376808 ET308657

Description:
   A vulnerability has been confirmed in the NetBackup Volume Manager
   daemon (vmd).  By sending a specially crafted packet to the Volume Manager,
   a stack overflow occurs.  This is caused by improper bounds checking.  
   Exploitation does not require authentication, thereby allowing a remote
   attacker to take over the system or disrupt the backup capabilities.  
   Further testing and code inspection has revealed that all other
   NetBackup 5.1 daemons are potentially affected in the same manner.  
   Therefore, any Master Servers, Media Servers, Clients and Console machines
   at this version level are subject to this vulnerability.  However,
   NetBackup 5.1 database agents are not affected by this issue.
   
   Refer to the Related Document section for more details.

Etrack Incident = ET366838

Description:
   The robotic inventory, vmupdate, may fail after encountering a media of

Description:
   Fixed the following issues with bpcatarc and bpcatrm:
   
   - The command was failing because of an incorrect recursion level for
     image Query
   
   - The backup job submitted by bpcatarc was failing when IDIRSTRUCT was set
     to 1. Now it does not submit the job when IDIRSTRUCT is 1 and it provides
     a message to the user.
   
   - When the bpcatarc output was piped to bpcatrm, it would fail to remove
     the .f files that where archived in that run.
   
   - Images in linked folders where being archived.

Etrack Incident = ET355632

Description:
   When bpbackup is run with the option to wait for the completion of the
   backup job, a firewall between bpbackup and bprd can shut down the socket
   while bpbackup waits for the completion status.  This causes backint to
   get stuck in an infinite loop during database backups.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET384760

Description:
   A potential race condition exists if a Windows client backup receives a
   134 status (resource busy).
   
   The race condition was caused because the bpfis process had already started
   taking a snapshot and bpfis has no knowledge of the resource failure. So,
   the snap is taken, but when it is completed, there is no bpbrm and bpsched
   (child) process running to accept the snap information.
   
   When the job is later re-scheduled, this (unrequested) snap information was
   passed back to the new bpbrm and bpsched.  The unrequested snap information
   confused bpsched (child).  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET349768 ET405553

Description:
   "bpdbm -consistency 2" rejects images that contain files belonging to
   groups with very long names, which causes media to be reused before the
   retention period expired.  

Workaround:
   When running bpdbm -consistency record the bad images, and then import
   from the media these images were on.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET320044

Description:
   bpdbm's host list was not consistent with bprd's host list.  Bprd
   was using FORCE_RESTORE_MEDIA_SERVER correctly, however, bpdbm was
   not.  

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, use the original media server name, or manually edit
   the image database to refer to the alternate server.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description:
   Using the Windows NetBackup Backup, Archive, and Restore interface to
   Restore files and folders with curly brace characters ('{' and '}') in
   their names no longer fails with the error, "- no files matched in the

Workaround:
   The workaround is to use a wildcard specification that includes these files
   with curly brace characters and then delete the files that you do not want
   after the restore.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET325895

Description:
   Error messages were being written to the bperror log and the bpdbm log

   ''NDMP_LOG_NORMAL 0 RESTORE: FILE_NAME: File does not exist in backup.''  

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, use the same platform (UNIX or Windows) where the
   backup was performed.
   

Additional Notes:
   The actual problem exists on the backup site. To do DAR restore using a
   different NetBackup platform (UNIX to Windows or Windows to UNIX), you
   have to perform a backup using this patch.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET418365

Description:
   Activity Monitor failure for Red Hat 4.0 (no processes listed):
   
   For Linux, the process examination code heretofore
   assumed that all files /proc/*/stat were flat files that contained process
   statistics.  A read() on the stat file yielded salient process information.
   However, read() will fail if stat is a >directory<, whereas open() will
   not fail.  On Red Hat 4.0, there is at least one case where stat
   is a directory and not a file (/proc/net/stat).  This fix skips the
   read() of stat if it is not a regular file.  

Additional Notes:
   This issue appears to be limited to Red Hat 4.0.

Etrack Incident = ET498525

Description:
   In a rare condition, one or more backups could be corrupt when using Inline
   Tape Copy (ITC) with multiplexed backups.  This would potentially happen
   under the following conditions:
   
   - ITC was enabled with two or more active copies.
   - Multiplexing was enabled with two or more active backups.
   - The schedule configuration had "continue if the copy fails" flag
        set for the copy that failed in the next step.
   - A copy other than the first active copy encountered "end of media", so a
        new media was needed for this copy.  Then, there was a problem getting
        or setting up media (for example, writing the media header) such that
        this copy failed before continuing the backup.
   - The last buffer written to the first active copy prior to the "end of
        media" on the other copy was not the first active backup.

Workaround:
   To avoid this problem, do one of the following:
   
   - Edit the schedule configuration to disable the "continue if copy fails"
        flag.
   - Disable multiplexing.
   - Disable ITC.

Etrack Incident = ET295113

Description:
   The scheduler was modified to correctly process a status 134 error - race
   condition in a multiplex backup.
   
   This condition occurred when a multiplex child bpsched started a backup,
   but the storage unit was over committed. A status 134 error was sent back
   to the multiplex child bpsched, but the child schedule was already adding
   another backup to the multiplex group.
   
   The child schedule attempted to send the new jobs information to bpbrm, but
   bpbrm had exited and the connection was defunct. The scheduler was
   incorrectly logging the defunct connection in the job progress log. With
   this change, the scheduler will not log the broken socket, but will
   correctly read and process the status 134 from the in-bound connection.

Etrack Incident = ET276469

Description:
   When attempting to quit by using the <ESC> key in bpadm, the key is
   ineffective and it fails with the error, "Attribute 254 cannot be changed".
   The <ESC> key works in AIX 5.1, so this issue seems to be exclusive to the
   AIX 5.2 platform.

Description:
   The SCSI TEST UNIT READY timeout value has been increased from 2 seconds to

Etrack Incident = ET294713

Description:
   An problem occurred that caused bpretlevel loops to echo the word, "What?,"
   when changing retention levels.  No input seemed to be a satisfactory
   response to exit the loop until a ctrl-C was entered.  
   
   Solution:
   
   An earlier change had changed all occurrences of gets() to fgets(), but
   failed to recognize that fgets() will return the '\n', whereas gets()
   did not.  The subsequent strcmp was not expecting the '\n', and
   always failed.  The solution was to strip the [new] trailing '\n' to
   emulate the gets() behavior.

Etrack Incident = ET265653 ET295655

Description:
   Oracle Advanced Client FlashBackup backups did not work with the new
   128-bit Encryption.  The failures produced an error status 25 - cannot
   connect on socket.  The bpfis debug log included messages similar to the
   following:

Etrack Incident = ET276123 ET262341

Description:
   Legacy Encryption may fail if the key file on the client is large.  For
   example, if 39 or more pass phrases are added to a key file on a Solaris
   client, encrypted backups or restores are likely to fail.  The error
   message "bpbrm - read() or KEYREADFD failed" will typically be reported.

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, delete some pass phrases from the key file if they
   are no longer needed.

Etrack Incident = ET210298

Description:
   Backups of NDMP clients were not displaying intermediate directories when
   browsing the backup contents.  For example, if directory A/B/C was backed
   up, /A and /A/B were not appearing when browsing the backup.
   
   Although the NetBackup catalog contained the directory information, it did
   not return it when the directory was not explicitly backed up.  This fix
   will enable browsing of these NDMP backups even if they were created prior
   to the fix.

Etrack Incident = ET277025

Description:
   When a local file system was auto-mounted to itself, NetBackup would
   incorrectly skip the backup of the local file system on SGI systems.  This
   occurred when the hostname returned from the uname command and the
   hostname stored in /etc/mtab were not both fully-qualified or both short
   (for example, uname returns "machine" and /etc/mtab contains
   "machine.domain.com").

Workaround:
   Make sure the hostname returned by the uname command and the hostname
   specified in /etc/mtab both use either the fully-qualified hostname or the
   short name.

Etrack Incident = ET300673

Description:
   If a /dev/rdsk device was used as the extended copy command target, the
   code to convert the disk path to the sg path for scsi-passthrough commands
   fails if the disk is managed by the ssd driver. This caused an error to be
   logged in the bptm log this was similar to the following:

Etrack Incident = ET301501

Description:
   A Scheduler race condition was occurring: Child sched was sending a
   ‘done’ to the main sched while the main sched was sending a ‘term one’ to the
   child sched. The child sched erroneously treated the ‘term one’ as the
   response to the ‘done’ and then exited prematurely.
   
   The correct child response is to discard (ignore) the ‘term one’
   request and wait for the main sched response to the 'done' command.
   
   Also missing was code to discard (ignore) a ‘suspend’ request after having
   sent a 'done' to the main sched.

Description:
   When installing NetBackup Server on SUSE 9 systems, the installation
   appeared to hang.

Additional Notes:
   When the NetBackup 5.1GA install hangs, the make_scsi_dev process must be
   killed from another terminal session. The NetBackup install should be
   allowed to run to completion after make_scsi_dev has been killed. The

Description:
   WORM tape support uses sixteen byte SCSI-3 commands.  Some HBA's have
   problems with these commands, and can cause SCSI Bus Reset's.  A new touch
   file, volmgr/database/NO_SIXTEEN_BYTE_CDB, can be created to disable these
   commands.  This will effect your ability to use WORM tape with some drives.
   
   Solaris platforms have been found to not handle sixteen byte commands on
   Parallel SCSI HBA's, so devices on these HBA's are automatically prevented
   from using sixteen byte SCSI commands.

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, use an HBA that supports sixteen byte commands.

** Description:
   ATTENTION:  A related TechAlert exists for this issue.  
   
   NetBackup 5.1 Maintenance Pack 3 contained a condition under which data
   loss might have occurred. This data loss would occur if the following
   conditions were true:
   
   NOTE: This issue only affects duplicate images using NetBackup 5.1_MP3.  
   The original or "source" image remains valid.  
   
   1. The original backup image must be written to tape.  Virtual Tape
   Libraries (VTL) will be affected by this as well.  Disk-based backups are
   not affected by this issue.
   
   2. The original backup image must span more than one fragment.  This would
   be caused when multiplexing is enabled, when a backup image spans more than
   one tape, when the maximum fragment size is reached, or when a checkpoint
   occurs for checkpoint-restart backups.
   
   3. The image must be a duplicate image and meet one of the following
   conditions:
      - The source image was not multiplexed on tape.
      - The duplication is performed with the "Preserve Multiplexing" option
        disabled.
   
   If all the criteria above apply, then the second and subsequent copies of
   backup images created by the duplicate operation will be written incorrectly.

   change the retention level of the new copy to a retention level that is
   configured as "expires immediately", then the original image also appears
   to be expired at the end of the duplication. Any backup taken after that,
   returns the original image.

Workaround:
   Any subsequent backup would expunge expired copy from the image file, and
   bring back the original image (to image list and for restore operation)

Etrack Incident = ET234522

Description:
   SCSI-3 library commands have standardized on op code 0x37 for the command
   INITIALIZE ELEMENT STATUS w/RANGE.  Previous implementations by numerous
   vendors had used vendor-unique code 0xE7 - which was implemented by
   NetBackup.  SCSI-3 libraries will return sense data 20/00 when sent an E7.

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, use only tapes with barcodes that are valid for your
   library vendor.

Etrack Incident = ET234298

Description:
   NetBackup was not properly using the firmware revision to retrieve the
   correct device mapping in the device mappings file.  This has never been a
   problem in the field because VERITAS has never had to use the firmware
   revision in the device mappings file - this is being done for new device
   support.

Etrack Incident = ET235646

Description:
   Previously, cluster_config -a would go into an infinite loop when
   configuring add-on products for monitoring when anything but a lowercase
   "y" was entered at the following prompt:
       
   You have chosen to monitor  <addon>. Is this list correct? [y,n] (Y)
       
   This issue has been resolved and the defaults, "Y" and "y" are all valid
   responses.  

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, you would have entered a lowercase "y" instead of an
   uppercase "Y", or you could have taken the default.

Etrack Incident = ET223542

Description:
   The scheduler does not automatically start "bpexpdate -deassignempty" to
   deassign media that do not have associated images after "bprecover -l" has
   been run.

Workaround:
   If a bprecover -l has been executed, remove the following file:
   
   UNIX:
   /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/deassign_lock
   
   Windows:
   VERITAS\NetBackup\Bin\deassign_lock
   
   Do not remove this file if a catalog recover (bprecover -r) has been done.

Etrack Incident = ET235410

Description:
   It was possible that the bpjobd process may hang under certain conditions.
   It has been demonstrated that this can happen if bpduplicate and bptm
   processes are killed, but it may occur in other situations.  The bpjobd
   process does not die, it just loops consuming CPU time, and nothing is
   written to the debug log.  This prevented the job DB from being updated
   with the status of existing jobs, or new jobs.  bpjobd must be killed and
   restarted by the system administrator to resolve this problem.
       
   This problem is indicated by the following data in the bpjobd debug log,
   referring to non-existent job ID 3:
   
   18:45:00.734 [17433] <2> process_active_job: Frame type is 3 (jobid 3)
   Sock (93)
   18:45:00.734 [17433] <2> process_active_job: Adding provider(1) for job(3)
   socket (93)
   18:45:00.734 [17433] <2> process_active_job: Begin to write (JOBTRYFILE) at
   offset 68 job (3)

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, kill and restart the hung bpjobd.

Etrack Incident = ET223801

Description:
   Under some circumstances, an image file might be expired on the Master
   server and remain on the Media server. When media full is detected for a
   DiskStaging storage unit, the media server attempts to remove the two
   oldest images. If these images were no longer in the catalog on the Master
   server, they could not be removed and the backup would fail.
       
   The code was changed to remove the image files if the Master server no
   longer had them in the catalog.  

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, manually delete the image files that are causing the
   problems along with their .ds file.

Etrack Incident = ET232060

Description:
   To assist image database cleanup in 24x7 environments, image database
   cleanup will always run in background.  bpsched will not wait until the
   cleanup is complete before scheduling new jobs.  In addition, bpsched will
   initiate an image database cleanup at periodic intervals, 12 hours by
   default.  The time interval may be changed by using the
   bpconfig -cleanup_int <hours> command.  For example, to change the interval
   to 24 hours, execute the following command:
   
   bpconfig -cleanup_int 24
   
   Use a value of 0 to disable bpsched from starting the periodic image
   database cleanup.  The maximum value is 744 hours.  Bpsched will still
   perform an image database cleanup at the end of a session, however, it will
   be run in background.  On UNIX systems, bpadm may also be used to change
   the interval.

Etrack Incident = ET233382

Description:
   In one instance, some catalog files were corrupted when the system ran out
   of disk space. This caused bpdbm to crash whenever it tried to load the
   corrupted catalog files. The command "bpdbm -consistency 2" also crashed
   every time these corrupted files were checked.
       
   The cause of this problem was the buffer overrun in libcatalog when loading
   corrupted files: the pointers and string lengths are wrong after mapping
   buffer overrun to fix the crash of bpdbm.  In addition, code was added in
   image.c to move corrupted catalog files out of /db/images (into /db.corrupt
   directory) when running "bpdbm -consistency 2".
       
   This new code resulted in the following new feature:
       
   "bpdbm -consistency" will move corrupted catalog files out of the catalog
   repository "/netbackup/db/images" and into "/netbackup/db.corrupt"
   directory.
       
   After running the above command, users will need to do the following:
   1. Record all file paths in /db.corrupt.
   2. Re-import the files in step 1.
   3. Delete files in /db.corrupt.

Etrack Incident = ET233201

Description:
   Some FlashBackup backups took longer on NetBackup 5.0 than they did for

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, raise the maximum files-per-add value using the

   for all backups.

Additional Notes:
   The number of files added per call to the catalog has been raised to 9500

Etrack Incident = ET272608

Description:
   If a set of configuration options in bp.conf is very large, it can cause
   bpgetconfig and the GUI to not display any of the items.  This applies to
   items in bp.conf with the same name, for example CONNECT_OPTIONS or SERVER.
   
   Additionally, if that set of configuration options is edited in the GUI,
   for example, to add a new server to the CONNECT_OPTIONS, all of the
   previous data for that set of options will be lost and only the new data
   will be in bp.conf.

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, reduce the number of configuration options with the
   same name.

Description:
   When running Windows Open File Backup enabled backups using VSS on
   Windows 2003 clients, performance of the backup is considerably slower
   compared to when running a Windows Open File Backup enabled backup using
   VSP or with Windows Open File Backup disabled. Only backup performance is
   affected and no data loss occurs as a result of using VSS as the Windows
   Open File Backup snapshot provider.

Description:
   When backing up encrypted data on Windows 2000 clients using Windows Open
   File Backup to backup an open/active file, the encrypted data will be
   inaccessible to the backup, and the backup will end partially successful.

Additional Notes:
   In NetBackup 5.1 MP2, Windows Open File Backup snapshots will be disabled
   when backing up encrypted data on Windows 2000 clients. This is not
   applicable to Windows operating systems newer than Windows 2000 such as
   Windows XP and Windows 2003. A logging message similar to the one below may
   appear in the bpbkar32 debug logs indicating this on Windows 2000 clients:
   
   4:29:09.328 PM: [2620.2648] < 4> file_access::V_OpenForRead: INF -
   Disabling
   snapshots for: D:\lock\ORW_SN.txt
   
   By disabling snapshots for Windows encrypted data on Windows 2000 clients,
   these files may not be accessible to the backup if they are busy or locked
   by another process. If Windows Open File Backup protection is important,
   Windows encryption should be disabled on the files being backed up.

Etrack Incident = ET283490

Description:
   Initiating multiple Oracle backups caused crashes in scheduler. Each of the
   Oracle backups attempted to read/update/write a group ID file (used for
   synching snap backups), but there was no lock mechanism on the file access,
   so each Oracle backup had the potential to corrupt another’s file access.
   
   When this problem was discovered, the environment was running about
   20-Oracle backups (one policy per client).

Workaround:
   To avoid the issue, stagger window openings for Oracle backups.

Etrack Incident = ET287099

Description:
   After running FlashBackup backups that were aborted, a snapcachelist
   command showed the snapshot cache device still in use even though the
   snaplist command did not return any snapshots. Eventually, the snapshots
   would fail because of the 32 snapshots per cache device. A reboot is
   required to recover the use of the cache device.

Additional Notes:
   The snap driver has been modified to use a different flag bit to denote a
   snapshot in creation versus a snapshot that is being deleted. A snapshot in
   creation is allowed to be listed by snaplist, and can be deleted.
   FlashBackup has been changed to remember the snapshot ID between the time
   that the snapshot is initially created to the time that the snapshot device
   is opened so that it can be deleted.

Description:
   When running backups with Windows Open File Backup and running multi-
   streamed and multiplexed backups, some backups may end with status
   41, "network connection timed out". When these errors occur, there should
   be multiple (at least 30) log statements such as the one below in the
   bpbkar32 logs for the same bpbkar32 process:

   This is not an issue for non multi-streamed Windows Open File Backup jobs

Description:
   The following list identifies a few issues with FlashSnap FIM if full-sized

   A. You should not use vxsnap split before a disk group split; it deletes
   DCO so that FMR will not be utilized.
   
   B. Advanced client does the refresh of the first volume only before a disk
   group split; it causes 'fsck' to fail on the alternate client.
   
   C. The calculation of tmp_vol string len is incorrect, resulting in not
   enough space being allocated which then causes a core dump.

   An incremental multi-stream snap backup with forced stream 1 can miss files.
   The problem exists when the following conditions are true:
    - Snap backup (advanced client, WOFB).
    - Incremental backup.
    - Multi-stream backup.
    - Stream 1 is not due, but is force-started to perform the snapshot
   operation. Aggravated by ?frequency? mode (frequency is NOT a multiple of
   24-hours).
   
   The problem can be minimized/eliminated by configuring for an "all stream"
   backup:
    - Use calendar-based scheduling.
    - Use ?interval? mode (frequency is multiple of 24-hours).
    - Avoid multi-streaming snap backups.
   
   This problem occurs because of an oversight in cloning a due stream into
   a non-due stream1. Remember, stream1 is not due, but is required to
   perform the snap shot operation. The due stream information is copied in
   mass to create the stream1 information, and then adjusted to make it
   stream1 unique. The error occurs because the backup times (last backup,
   last full backup, last incremental backup) were not updated to the correct
   stream1 values. As a result of this, stream1 uses the stream2 image
   creation times. Image creation times are used to compute the delta time
   which determines the targeted incremental backup files.
   
   Unfortunately stream2 also suffers the same failure. The stream2
   incremental backup should be based upon the stream1 snap time, but stream1
   is using the incorrect time for the snap. So, all the due streams suffer
   this failure.

Etrack Incident = ET219966

Description:
   Resume of a checkpoint backup could select a different media server if a
   failure on initial backup attempt occurred.
   
   The failure scenario is:
     1) Backup reached a checkpoint.
     2) Then failed (this case was a 13 "read failed").
     3) Scheduler attempts to programmatically re-submit.
     4) But the drives were re-set & downed.
     5) So, the job exited with a 213 "no storage units available".
   
   The original storage unit information was "lost" so the job could
   potentially resume on a different media server. If resumed in this way,
   the backed up data would reside on two different media servers and any
   subsequent restore would fail.

Etrack Incident = ET229949

Description:
   Unable to restore using individual file restores through FlashBackup on a
   Windows client with an AIX master server, if a zero length file exists in
   the restore list.

Workaround:
   Restore will work if no zero length file is included in the restore list.

Etrack Incident = ET228739

Description:
   Listing the master in the ClientList no longer causes update_clients to
   fail.  To correct this issue, a check was added in bpinst so that if the
   client being shipped to is the master, and to not try and ship the java tar
   ball, which is very large.  It will also corrupt the file, and it is
   already in the right location.  In addition, a change was made to
   update_clients in the case where the master is the client as nbj.conf has
   moved to nbj.conf.bak.

Etrack Incident = ET229844

Description:
   An intermittent problem with installer no longer occurs when trying to
   install to remote clients.  The following two files were not being copied
   to %TEMP%\X86, and caused the following error to appear, "The system
   cannot find the file specified" on Install GUI.
   
   VERITAS Maintenance Pack.msi
   Data1.cab

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, do the following:
   
   1) Start the installer. Select "Select from available computer on the
   network".  Click Next.
   
   2) Copy VERITAS Maintenance Pack.msi Data1.cab to the %TEMP%\X86 directory.
   (easiest way to find what %TEMP% is, is to open a cmd shell and run echo
   %TEMP%, usually its something like C:\Documents and
   Settings\<UserName>\Local Settings\Temp\X86).
   
   3) Proceed with install.

Etrack Incident = ET230865

Description:
   An initialization failure against nbwin.exe is generated when a
   non-administration account initiates a restore.  A pop-up is generated
   stating that nbwin.exe failed to initialize 0xc0000022.  A change to the
   permissions was made to msvcr71.dll so that the user "Users" has Read and
   Execute permissions.

Workaround:
   Manually change the security permissions on msvcr71.dll to allow Read and
   Execute permissions for "Users" user.

Description:
   The cancel_all_exceeded_max_wait() function does not scale well in large
   environments. This change modifies the way incomplete jobs are processed
   when they have exceeded the maximum incomplete time.

Etrack Incident = ET224678

Description:
   Improved VMD debug logging to better enable analysis for slow servers.
   
   Allow control of VMD child timeouts, such that slow servers can be
   interrupted, before VMD encounters connection timeout's on other
   connections.
   
   Add "VMD_CHILD_TIMEOUT = xx", to the vm.conf file.  The value "xx" is the
   number of seconds to wait for a child to release its lock on the volume
   database.  Allowable time is 60 - 360 seconds, where 360 is the default
   (and value used prior to this patch).

Etrack Incident = ET218653

Description:
   A race condition existed when two restore jobs needed the same piece of
   media, from the same server, when this media was not already in the media
   database.  The condition could cause the media to be added twice and one
   of the restores to fail.
