Hi All,

Another mind bending issue I am struggling with.

The issue is the clietn servers are AIX and we dont have access thus not able to directly check anything on the client.

I have cross verified the host files and they seem OK. Though I can cross check again.

BPCD is successful.

Any ideas which logs I should be referring to on Client and master in order to get a hold of the error messsage please?

our environemtn details:

Master and media are same running on NBu appliance 5200 v 2.5


Client AIX.

Thanks, Anish

I think you'll have better luck with this thread in the NetBackup forum as you're troubleshooting DB2 backups and not really Appliances here. | APPLBN | 761LBN

In any way related to this post? 

Are you (still) using a backup network? No way to troubleshoot this without access or co-operation from sysadmins. Please work with AIX admins and ask them for output of the following commands on DB2 client:

bpclntcmd -self

bpclntcmd -pn

After this, check bprd log on master server for incoming connection request from client.
See if master is resolving the client's IP address to same hostname that is in the DB2 policy's Client list.

hi All,

This problem was resolved via NETBACKUP EEB.

For version 2.5.2 we have the EEB 310548.

Thanks, anish

Do you mean 3105408?  I have no idea how that relates to your original problem, but I'm glad you got a solution!
