This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi, we are using NB 6.5.6 on Solaris 10.

We have SSO licence.I tried to configure SSO, but  scan host is not set.

Also I have strange output of vmdareq command:

 

bash-3.00# /usr/openv/volmgr/bin/vmdareq -h master
HP.ULTRIUM5-SCSI.000 - AVAILABLE
     MEDIA1 UP
     MEDIA2 UP
HP.ULTRIUM5-SCSI.001 - AVAILABLE
     MEDIA1 UP
     MEDIA2 UP
HP.ULTRIUM5-SCSI.002 - AVAILABLE
     MEDIA1 UP
     MEDIA2 UP
HP.ULTRIUM5-SCSI.003 - AVAILABLE
     MEDIA1 UP
     MEDIA2 UP
HP.ULTRIUM5-SCSI.004 - AVAILABLE
     MEDIA1 UP
     MEDIA2 UP
HP.ULTRIUM5-SCSI.005 - AVAILABLE
     MEDIA1 UP
     MEDIA2 UP
 
When I try to backup something, all jobs waiting with "Drive scan host is not active".
So how can I assign scan host for the drives?

scan hosts generally selects by Netbackup automatically.

"Drive scan host is not active"., your netbackup scan host is not talking to netbackup.

please restart Netbackup in  master and media servers and see if it helps you.

Before I tried to restart only media servers, and it's don't work.

After complete restart master server scan host has been assingned correctly.

Thanks a lot!
