GENERAL ERROR: NBCC fails with error "directory doesn't have 1024000 KB of space available" when running in a locale other than US English.


Solution



Overview:
NBCC fails with error "directory doesn't have 1024000 KB of space available" when running in a locale other than US English.


Workaround:
Unix workaround:
Set the environment variables LC_MESSAGES and LC_TYPE equal to 'C' and then export the variables.  The variables and values should be present in the output of the locale command.  This will allow NetBackup and OS utilities to display output in the English language. This should also allow NBCC to operate on the standard ASCII character set.

Windows workaround:
 
1.  In the NetBackup administration Console, setting the Language to English, United States.
 
2.  In the cmd window where NBCC is run, set the "code page" to 437 (United States) by using the chcp command:
 
Example:
 
chcp 437
 

 

Note:  This workaround only applies if the locale of the operating system in question is set to be non-English.  If the operating system installation is non-English, these workarounds will not apply.  NBCC could still have problems if there are native language characters within the NetBackup paths.

 
When running NBCC 7.5 and later versions, the check for the amount of free disk space can be disabled, by adding the option "-kbfree 0" on the NBCC.exe command line.
 
Example:   C:\Program Files\Veritas\NetBackup\bin\support>NBCC -kbfree 0
