Created: 10 Dec 2012 • Updated: 10 Dec 2012

Hi folks, am currently running through the following issue in our environment. Looking forward for some solution or suggesstion on this.

Environment & error details:

Master server/Media servers - Windows 2008 R2.

NetBackup ver - Veritas NetBackup on all master and media servers.

Error detail - NDMP filer backup fails with Status code 174.

Filer details - EMC VNX 5700 with 8 concurrent streams for backups.

Problem description:

Bunch of streams for NDMP backup streams failed with 174 after waiting in Q for long time and not written any data as backup.

Troubleshooting as of now:

Already referred the tech article and found it in appropriate. Any other inputs will be much appreciated! Thanks in advance.

Also if I re-run the job, backups are proceeding fine. Still wanted to know the cause for this.
