Hi All,

Facing the below issue in backup.

10/26/2012 04:41:13 - Info bpbrm (pid=29434) from client Server1: TRV - Cannot lstat /data/zabbix/db_backup/backup_26-10-12.Custom.sql. Errno = 2: No such file or directory

But, the job gets successful after a resume operation.

Does it happen at  /data/zabbix/db_backup/backup_26-10-12.Custom.sql every time ?

lstat is OS call to "taste"  the file before processing it for backup. It seems that for some sort the file went missing or bpbkar hung up. As a try - have you tried to exclude the directory to backup to see if the issues goes away ?

You can also run bpbkar by hand to see if the prompt is returned :

/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bpbkar  -nocont -nofileinfo -nokeepalives  /data/zabbix/db_backup/ > /dev/null 2> /tmp/file.out

Progress can be monitored in /tmp/file.out

Assumption is the mother of all mess ups.
