DataDomain storage server DOWN, backups failing code 213

Created: 09 Nov 2011 • Updated: 09 Nov 2011 | 3 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

We had a network issue on our Datadomain during the night which caused Netbackup to set its storage server status to DOWN.

[root@backup admincmd]# ./nbdevquery -liststs -stype DataDomain -U
Storage Server      : ctldd510
Storage Server Type : DataDomain
Storage Type        : Formatted Disk, Network Attached
State               : DOWN
Flag                : OpenStorage
Flag                : CopyExtents
Flag                : AdminUp
Flag                : InternalDown
Flag                : LifeCycle
Flag                : CapacityMgmt
Flag                : FragmentImages
Flag                : Cpr
Flag                : FT-Transfer

I've been all over the net searching for how to bring the storage server back up.

try Media and Device Management - Device Monitor - disk pools tab at the bottom of the page - UP the disk pool by right clicking on it

Hope this helps

Even though the disk pool showed its status as "Up" in the Media and Device Managment menu, we upped it anyway. IT WORKED!

[root@backup admincmd]# ./nbdevquery -liststs -stype DataDomain -U
Storage Server      : ctldd510
Storage Server Type : DataDomain
Storage Type        : Formatted Disk, Network Attached
State               : UP
Flag                : OpenStorage
Flag                : CopyExtents
Flag                : AdminUp
Flag                : InternalUp
Flag                : LifeCycle
Flag                : CapacityMgmt
Flag                : FragmentImages
Flag                : Cpr
Flag                : FT-Transfer

Thanks!
