NetBackup 6.5.x unexpected full backup of multistream policy
I have NetBackup 6.5.6 on a Solaris 10 Master and Media server and a Windows 2008 client.
The policies for this client allow multistream backups. No other client is included in these policies. All schedules are frequency-based.
Not very long ago, but long enough to forget exactly when it was, I began allowing this client, but no other clients, to have two simultaneous backup jobs, but only one per policy. Now I am getting full backups from at least some of the streams in some of those policies many weeks before I was expecting them. Last night one policy started stepping through all of its streams, so I began looking closely at it while its master job was queued but none of the streams were active.
First I looked at the output of
nbpemreq -policies screen depth all policy_name
and got dizzy.
Then I cancelled the queued job, renamed that policy's two STREAMS files, and ran
but now that policy has disappeared from the output of commands like
nbpemreq -predict -date 01/31/2013
nbpemreq -due -date 01/31/2013
Finally, I deactivated all problematic policies and cancelled their queued jobs. I'll reactivate them when I have a solution.
What should I do now to troubleshoot?
