PROBLEM

Today i was facing an error while taking the backup of BMR. You can see the below error messages of ACTIVITY MONITOR

ACTIVITY MONITOR

the requested operation was partially successful(1)
 
The job was successfully completed, but some files may have been
busy or unaccessible. See the problems report or the client's logs for more details.

RESOLUTION

In GUI: select NetBackup Management-->Master Servers-->master-->Client Attributes-->client-->Windows Open File Backup, enable this & then select appropriate snapshot provider

Note:-
1.) When you add the client in the CLIENTS BOX the WOFB (Windows Open File Backup) will be enable

 
2.) The Windows Open File Backup properties specify whether a client uses Windows Open File Backup. The properties also specify whether Volume Snapshot Provider or Volume Shadow Copy Service is used as the snapshot provider.

Snapshots are a point-in-time view of a source volume. NetBackup uses snapshots to access busy or active files during a backup job. Without a snapshot provider, active files are not accessible for backup.

Hi,

 

I have already enabled the WOFB and VSS Snapshot Provider, however, I still get this status 1. What can I do?

 

Many thanks.
