Hi All,

 

I am testing the use of NetBackup to do my database backups.

I get the following message when attempting an online backup of a db2 database on a Windows 2003 server:  "database currently in use"

I should only get this message if I were doing an offline backup...any ideas?

Hello,

I am running Netbackup 6.0 on linux, I am unable to attach tape drive. Here is the output of scan command. 

From command line device name is recognized as "-" Device Name  : "-"

 

[root@bak01 /]# lsmod |grep -w st
st                     38660  0
 
[root@bak01 /]# mt -f /dev/nst0 status
SCSI 2 tape drive:
File number=0, block number=0, partition=0.
Tape block size 0 bytes. Density code 0x44 (LTO-3).
Soft error count since last status=0
General status bits on (45010000):
 BOT WR_PROT ONLINE IM_REP_EN
 
And from Netbackup GUI I get the following error when trying to add tape drive.
"A SCSI inquiry sent to the device has failed (16)"
 
Device is been reported as "-"
 
 

 

 

[root@bak01 /]# /usr/openv/volmgr/bin/scan
