Error bpbrm, problem with sun4v

Created: 27 May 2010 | 6 comments


This is my first post hire :)

I am trying to backup Sparc server, Solaris10 but manual backup is partially finished.
05/26/2010 13:38:01 - Error bpbrm (pid=15061) BMRERR: Received BMR error: Failed to discover System. (1)
05/26/2010 13:38:01 - Error bpbrm (pid=15061) BMRERR: Received BMR error: BMR information discovery failed. (1)
05/26/2010 13:38:01 - Error bpbrm (pid=15061) BMRERR: Did not receive bmr client request from emaback, status = 0
05/26/2010 13:38:01 - end writing
05/26/2010 14:14:22 - end Parent Job; elapsed time 0:36:27
the requested operation was partially successful (1)

I found that we are having problem with client sun4v platform, and hire is info from Symantec NetBackup documentation:

page 49.

BMR Client and Boot Server support for Sparc-sun4v servers is available in the NetBackup 6.5.5 release. For support in previous NetBackup releases contact Technical Support who can provide NetBackup 6.5.x EEBs for BMR in a sun4v environment.

Did you met this problem before and how can I get EEB for NetBackup6.5.4 that will fix my sun4v problem?

Hi Zed11
If you need to know how to contact Technical support, go to this link:

On the right-hand side of the page, you will find a link under Common Topics to Contact Technical Support

Support might ask you the same question I have: Why not upgrade to 6.5.5 or 6.5.6?

Supporting Storage Foundation and VCS on Unix and Windows as well as NetBackup on Unix and Windows

As Marianne states, upgrade is an option (if allowed) & is straightforward.

If you're happy that this post is resolved, mark Mariannes post as the solution. You can then come back & start a new discussion if you have any issues with upgrading (if you go that route!).

Good luck with your endeavours!

And I forgot, I can't go with upgrade because NetBackup is a part of bigger solution that is working fine ant it is in production, I don't know how it will afect whole product.

Thanks again
