did you see the other clients backup that are running fine to the same Tape Drive ?

did you try taking backup to basic disk?

Please post the bpbrm, bptm and bpbkar logs.

Has this worked before or is this a new configuration ?

HI Dyneshia,

This is a new configuration.

Backups are being failed since its inception.

Hello Nagalla,

I dont have acces to client. I have attached bpbrm and bptm logs from master.

Please let me know if you require any other information.

please let us know your netbackup master/media and client versions..

Backup is running fine for rest of clients on that tape drive.

My management wants us to take bacup only on to tape.

Master :

Media  :

Client  : 7.5

Please let me know if this works.

thats the place.

Netbackup 7.5 does not support Mac 10.5.

NBU 7.5 supports only from Mac 10.6

NBU is the last version that supports MAC 10.5

please check that in sort for more info

you would need to upgrade your MAC OS to minimum 10.6

below is the OS compatability list, check in page 9

and from the SORT,

you can see this from "Installation and Upgrade check list"

just your for Netbackup enterprise server for your Operation system.

Hi Nagalla,

" you would need to upgrade your MAC OS to minimum 10.6 "

Please confirm that MAC OS x 10.6 and NBU client 7.5 are compatible or not ?????

RamNagalla's picture

it is compatable, that is what i find from sort.. even from the compatablity list..

Our client PC is runnig on MAC OS X 10.6.8 with NBU client is installed on it.

But still backups are failing. Please help me to troubleshoot this.

Did you upload the bptm and bpbrm from the media server used to backup the Mac cleint ?  I tried to pid it out from the info in your job detail stataus and was not able to find any inofrmation.  I did see errors regarding an exchange backup but Im sure that is a differnet client.

Are you able to to the client in the client host properties ?  What OS is your Master and MEdia server ?

RamNagalla's picture

agreed with Dyneshia,

please post the details status of the failed job, and related bptm and bpbrm logs, having bpbrm and bpcd log from client also could help.

This issue has been addressed by upgrading client to ; as this was a bug of 7.5 since it does not support check points enable.

Thanks everyone

Seems you never mentioned check points at any point in this thread?

It normally helps to mention all relevant info....
