Unabe to login, status: 525
Can not connect to the NB-Java authentication service via VNETD on nbutest.impactsci.com on port 13724. Check the log file for more details.

Host server name is : nbutest.impactsci.com
Tried root and nbuusr usernames with passwords.

Check if the port is blocked

NetBackup status code 525: Can not connect to the NB-Java authentication service via VNETD on (host) on port (vnetd_configured_port_number). Check the log file for more details.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Details:
Message: Can not connect to the NB-Java authentication service via VNETD on (host) on port (vnetd_configured_port_number). Check the log file for more details.

Explanation: The NB-Java authentication service authenticates the username that is provided in the login dialog box. Communication between the NetBackup Administration Console and the authentication service is attempted to host on the configured VNETD port number that error message specifies. The NetBackup Administration Console log file should contain more detail about this error.

Recommended action:
Status codes
1 On UNIX: Compare the VNETD entry in the /etc/services file with the VNETD_PORT entry in /usr/openv/java/nbj.conf
On Windows: Compare the VNETD entry with the VNETD_PORT entry in the install_path\java\setconf.batfile.
These entries must match.

2 Ensure that no other application uses the port that is configured for VNETD.

wrobbins,

Verified this and all looks good.  After a reboot, logins on both jnbSA and  jpbSA consoles are successful.  Thanks for your inputs and everyone elses. 

Question:  This NetBackup 60 test setup is on a standalone pc with no scsi tape devices connected and is not connected to the network.  I would like to try some D2D backups.  In the pc I have the a primary (master) drive where NBU 60 is installed and a second drive (slave) installed to test the backup to.  How do I see the slave drive in the GUI consoles?  Does the drive need formatted first to ext3(Linux) before it can been seen in the NBU GUI's?

Any inputs would be most helpful.  I'm a newbie to Linux.

 What flavor of linux are you running? Many versions cannot read or write to ntfs without tinkering with the kernel. The short answer is yes, it would be best to use a filesystem native to the OS. Even if you could write ntfs on your linux build the functionality still isn't 100% perfect, and backups are usually something you don't want to gamble with.

All,

Thanks,

Just noticed when in the NBU Administrative Console in the left pain it only shows nbutest.impactsci.com (Client) and not nbutest.impactsci.com (Master Server) and I don't get the full selections like NetBackup Management , Activity monitor, Scheduleing etc....

Please advise..

Please add there Your user ID.
ur_userID ADMIN=ALL JBP=ALL

Check out this guide - System Administrator's Guide for UNIX and Linux, Volume 1 ( http://seer.entsupport.symantec.com/docs/290201.htm )
for more details, search for auth.conf

This is what the auth.conf looks like....

root ADMIN=ALL JBP=ALL
* ADMIN=JBP JBP=ENDUSER+BU+ARC

Is there anything else that needs added?

quebek's picture

if You are logging there not as a root then You have to add You user ID.
If You are using root privileges then question would be what command You are using on this master server?
jnbSA or jbpSA??
jnbSA is the one You would like to use ;D

quebek,

For grins, last evening, I installed the Windows version of Netbackup  on a 2k3 server fully patched.   All looks good on that platform.  In the left pain all the adminstration functions are there.  The goal is to get NetBackup installed and running on Linux. 

Yes I'm using jnbSA and the root password at the java login screen. Could something have been missed during the install?  Could a daemon not be running that's needed?  If so what is the daemon and how would I check to see if all the needed daemon's for Netbackup got installed and are running properly from a linux command line.

All,

Problem solved.

Checked the bp.conf file

before :
SERVER = nbutest.(none)
CLIENT_NAME = nbutest.(none)
EMMSERVER = nbutest.(none)

Modified
SERVER = nbutest.impactsci.com
CLIENT_NAME = nbutest.impactsci.com
EMMSERVER = nbutest.impactsci.com

Launch the Admin Gui jnbSA

Get the configuration management options 

Thanks for all the help...
