Error 247 while policy is active.
Backups are failing with error 247 while policies are active shown in Admin Console and output of bppllist command.
We are upgrading NetBackup Master from 7.0.1 to 188.8.131.52. After upgrade the script to activate all policies was hanged and it was killed. A few policies were activated while other remained deactivated. The policies were activated manually but backups failed with error 247.
Policies were deactivated and activated again but backup failed with same error 247.
Policy was copied with a new name but backup failed again with same error 247.
Post upgrade script to activate all policies was hanged and killed.
/tmp was full and netbackup was restarted automatically on same node of cluster in its native third attempt.
IPv6 has been disabled on AIX 6.1 with HACMP to avoid "CORBA time out" issues with NetBackup.
