This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hello All,

I am trying to perform simple backup using Netbackup 7.1 on RHEL 6.2 version.

backupset is /home/data/00006 . While performing backup, I am getting this error:


Backup started 10/11/2012 13:30:56

13:30:56 Initiating backup
13:30:59 INF - Starting bpbrm
13:31:01 INF - Beginning backup on server ri2005 of client ri2005
13:31:01 INF - Processing /home/data/00006/
13:31:02 /home/data/00006/
13:31:02 WRN - [/home/data/00006] is on file system type PROC. Skipping
13:31:02 INF - Client completed sending data for backup

13:31:02 INF - Server status = 0
13:31:02 INF - Status = the requested operation was successfully completed.

/home is mounted but it is not proc type file syste:

/dev/mapper/vg_ri2005-lv_root on / type ext4 (rw)
proc on /proc type proc (rw)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620)
tmpfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw,rootcontext="system_u:object_r:tmpfs_t:s0")
/dev/sda1 on /boot type ext4 (rw)
/dev/mapper/vg_ri2005-lv_home on /home type ext4 (rw)
none on /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc type binfmt_misc (rw)
/tmp on /tmp type none (rw,bind)
/var/tmp on /var/tmp type none (rw,bind)
/home on /home type none (rw,bind)
none on /sys/kernel/config type configfs (rw)


I have not set any include or exclude list. So this should happen in default behaviour. kindly assist.

Thanks and regards,

This is entry from bpbkar log:


13:43:00.041 [19730] <2> bpbkar resolve_path: INF - Actual mount point of /home/data is /home/data
13:43:00.041 [19730] <2> bpbkar SelectFile: INF - Resolved_path = /home/data/00006

I think this is wrong as mount point of /home/data should be /home.

Maybe because filesystem type is shown as 'NONE' ?

Why is it showing as NONE? What filesystem type is /home actually?

I don't know why was is showing None, but after mounting it to ext4 did the trick.
