You would be best to post this in the NetBackup Forum for a wider reponse to your issue.

However, here is a technote you might want to look through to get you started.

STATUS CODE 42: When running a backup of all clients using a particular media server, all backups fail with Exit Status 42, network read failed.

Tip: Get overview/document your NBU environment. Run 'nbsu' and review the output.
