I am trying to backup Oracle 10gR2 using NetBackup Agent runing on Solaris 10 SPARC. I am runing NBU 6.5.5. I installed the latest EEB available.

Here is the error message of bpubsora


16:22:57 INF - ERR - /oracle/IRE/11202/lib/ not loaded: bpubsora: fatal: /oracle/IRE/11202/lib/ wrong


16:22:57 ERR - Unable to connect to ORABOBIRE.

16:22:57 INF - : enter - InitFlags:0x00000001

Any idea ?

I am runing NBU 6.5.5.


NBU 6.x reached EOSL in Oct 2012.

Please upgrade master, media server and Oracle client.
Latest and recommended NBU version is

Supporting Storage Foundation and VCS on Unix and Windows as well as NetBackup on Unix and Windows
Handy NBU Links

Hello Marianne,

Yes, I already tell the customer that upgrading his NBU environment is critical since NBU6.5 has reached is EOS few months ago...
But, right now, he can't do this. He is planing the upgrade ASAP.

please check the below tech note


This problem is resolved in NetBackup 7.x.

Sites that are unable to upgrade can bypass the problem by replacing the 32-bit library in $ORACLE_HOME/lib32 with a symbolic link to the 64-bit library file located in $ORACLE_HOME/lib.  E.g.

$ cd /u03/app/oracle/product/11.1/db_1/lib32 

$ mv 
$ ln -s /u03/app/oracle/product/11.1/db_1/lib/

hope this helps.

By messages in OP, it seems like 32-bit bpubsora in NetBackup 6.5 tried to load 64-bit This is opposite from TECH185649 which Nagalla pointed.

Does /oracle/IRE/11202/lib32/ exist?

After some researches, it seems that 32bit is shipped with the 32 bit oracle client. So, installing the 32 bits Oracle client should solve the issue.

Anyway, the customer decided to postponed the project. So, I'll be able to upgrade NBU environnement (Master, media AND Client) to NBU7. In that manner I should avoid this issue.
