Image cleanup jobs failing with "media manager - system error occurred(174)" and backups jobs failing with "media open error(83)"

This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi,

I have Image cleanup jobs failing with "media manager - system error occurred(174)" and backups jobs failing with "media open error(83)"

This two events are related as the Cleanup image job is failing in th image svpfil05_1363977060_C1_F1 and the backup failing is from server svpfil05

Here you are the failing Cleanup image job logs:

Any idea?

Was there more than one backup done for this client? Mixed case in client name for the different backups?

 

I had the same error when I ran a backup for my laptop as Marianne-Win7 as Client name, and then a couple of weeks later as marianne-win7:

Hello,

Was there more than one backup done for this client? Mixed case in client name for the different backups?

Yes, there are several polices running for this server:

  • Normal backup policy: system state, C: and D: drives. This one runs without problems
  • Customized backup for drive K: which contains many PSTs files. This one is the failing one

It seems the same error you described, but I have already checked the path you provided and soft links already exists

lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root    8 may 11 10:44 SVPFIL05.domain.tld -> svpfil05

Did you have the same problem with the Image cleaup jobs?

Thank you for your time

Best regards

OK - I have seen this get even worse recently!

First it must be said that client names in policies using mixed case with MSDP is not classed as unsupported so you do need to actually sort those out

Next, go one step deeper into the catalog

Inside the clients folder you will see a folder with the policy name (and if i remeber right the schedule name is under that (maybe!)

Her you can get an issue if a policy has been re-created so look carefully at the current policy name and see if it is in exactly the same case as the current folders - you may need to create soft links within the client folders too

Hope this helps - all confusing and really hard to spot the error - sometime you need to look at the actual image name and how that relates to the folder names to spot where the difference is and how the softlink needs to be done

Hello

I have checked the policy names and they are the same in the netbackup console and in the /deduplication/databases/catalog/2/svpfil05 path.

The failing backup policy is win_prod_PST (special policy por PSTs files) and the other policy that runs OK  in this server is Win_Prod_Daily (standard policy for C:/D: drives and System State)

Within the Win_Prod_Daily folder there are several files named as the failing image in the Image cleanup jobs

17/05/2013 06:29:18 - Critical bpdm(pid=7511) sts_delete_image of image svpfil05_1363977060_C1_F1 failed: error 2060029 authorization failure

./win_prod_PST/svpfil05_1363977060_C1_F2.map
./win_prod_PST/svpfil05_1363977060_C1_HDR.img

The bizarre thing about this is that the failing policy folders doesn't have these folders. They are located in the policy that runs OK

Any other Idea?

Thank you for your time

Best Regards

Mark_Solutions's picture

Sounds like your softlinks are not working somewhere then - double check it all again

If they are right then when you look in the upper and lower case folders what you see should be the same

If you cannot see the failing policy folder then you need to search for them - there may be yet another folder that needs to be softlinked

So you may have svpfil05, Svpfil05 and svpFil05 or similar if you see what i mean

Hope this helps

So they have the same policy name too. ¿? I don't see any differences.

I did not have any image cleanup failure as my first backup with lowercase name failed.

It took me overnight to remember Mark's similar experience.
I immediately created the symlink in the dedupe database folder as well as in /usr/openv/netbackup/db/images folder.
Subsequent backups and image cleanups were successful.
Sorry if that doesn't help you.

In order to work around the problem with policy win_prod_PST I have copied it to a renamed one win_prod_PST_svpfil05. This workaround works ok but The problem is still there.

huanglao2002's picture

From the image clean log

"

17/05/2013 06:29:18 - Critical bpdm(pid=7511) sts_delete_image of image svpfil05_1363977060_C1_F1 failed: error 2060029 authorization failure
17/05/2013 06:29:19 - Critical bpdm(pid=7511) image delete failed: error 2060029: authorization failure     

"

It's mean Netbackup can't use STS server access Puredisk pool,please try to readd the credential.

tpconfig -add -storage_server "STS server" -stype PureDisk -sts_user_id "user name"  -password "password"

 

the user name /passwd info are collect when you are create MSDP.

hope it's help.

Juasiepo's picture

Hi,

This failing policy is the only one failing. And all policies are using the same storage server. So I don't think it is related to credentials. As If it were a credential problem, it would affect to more than one policy.

Thank for your time

Regards

BTW:  The workaround is working, so my server is being backuped up with the new policy, but I am still getting the Image Cleanup error. I opened a case with support and waiting their reply

huanglao2002's picture

I'm sorry , my suggest don't help you.

If i encount this problem, i will call symc for support.  I think symc engineer know MSDP internal.

 

I only know how to install/use/uninstall MSDP.

Mark_Solutions's picture

If just the image cleanup is now failing then we need to look at exactly which image it cannot cleanup as that is where the problem lies.

You have obviously identified where the actual image resides (./win_prod_PST/) but NetBackup is looking somewhere else for it - so obviously one of the other folders that is involved in this.

Two ways around this (being very careful as always!!)

1. Link the sub folders and not just the top level client folders

2. Copy those images files for the problem image into the other folders

As you have now changed the policy etc and that is working OK then you should not get the error in the future, so if you use the copy method it will at least allow NetBackup to successfully run the image cleanup to get rid of your error and after that some queue processing, garbage collection and rebasing should clean it all up

Once the files have dissapeared out of one of the folders (which will tell you where it has been looking all this time) then you should be able to remove them from the other folders too

Hope this helps

I cannot find in the directory tree the path /ochlp-bak002#1/2/svpfil05/win_prod_PST/svpfil05_1366133647_C1_F1.info The more similar path could be /deduplication/databases/catalog/2/svpfil05/win_prod_PST/ and it really does exists:

[root@ochlp-bak002 win_prod_PST]# ls -l /deduplication/databases/catalog/2/svpfil05/win_prod_PST/svpfil05_1366133647_C1_F1.info
-rw-r----- 1 root root 161 abr 16 21:42 /deduplication/databases/catalog/2/svpfil05/win_prod_PST/svpfil05_1366133647_C1_F1.info

So I don't know where the netbackup is looking for /ochlp-bak002#1/2/svpfil05/win_prod_PST/svpfil05_1366133647_C1_F1.info

Any other idea?

Thanks for your time.

Can you show me an ls -lrt on that directory please.

Also, can you do a more on the .info file to see it contents? Wondering if it is actually corrupt.

Have you had a look in the spoold and storaged logs to see if they have any more clues?

It has 3138 files:

[root@ochlp-bak002 win_prod_PST]# ls -ltr|wc -l
3138

So I have uploaded the ls -ltr output.
 

The svpfil05_1366133647_C1_F1.info file doesn't seem corrupted  to me:

[root@ochlp-bak002 win_prod_PST]# more /deduplication/databases/catalog/2/svpfil05/win_prod_PST/svpfil05_1366133647_C1_F1.info

Nothing relevant found on spoold and storaged log files.

OK, if you are sure there is nothing in the spoold and storaged logs then there does seem to be an issue with these files - as you do get the access denied error - so either corruption has crept in or the rights to those files (or at least the .info file) is not right

You will see that not all image sets have the .info files so at least this one has an issue and maybe when this is cleared others will then crop up too.

I think as we have nothing logged to help that you need to see what support comes up with
