I am getting this error when i run this command

nbhba -L

Unable to communicate with HBA ports.
Please ensure that this system is set up correctly with nbftsrv_config.
(Must not be set up as FT Server.)
Error #11: system call failed
 

But i run this nbftsrv_config command that time my server was connected with san.

Do i need to disconnect first and then run this command

Just let me know the procedure of SAN Netbackup .

I have already read the documents didn't get any help .

 

Media server -- Connected with Library direct with SAN ( no switch)

Client is connected with media server  ( no switch)

Please help us to understand why you are running these commands....

What do you need to accomplish?

Not sure what you mean with ' SAN Netbackup' ?

Which documents have you read so far?

How exactly is Client connected with media server?

If you are trying to configure SAN Client, you need to read this document:

 NBU SAN Client and Fibre Transport Guide

(http://www.symantec.com/docs/DOC3658)

You need a SAN that is properly configured and zoned (including a switch).

If you are trying to config something else (not SAN client), please let us know.

Want to configure the san client.

Please help us to understand why you are running these commands....

--- Want to take backup over the SAN.

Which documents have you read so far?

 NBU SAN Client and Fibre Transport Guide

How exactly is Client connected with media server?

thru SAN ( fibre optic cable) Direct not san switch.

We need only one san client so i connected directly from fiber to fiber without switch.

When i used this command nbftsrv_config and didn't disconnect my fiber connections.

Maybe this commands throw this error. ( am i right)

 

 

 

Please check my steps.

Media Server.

1.  I have Three fibre optics cards . Two is connected with SAN and third is connected with San client ( Directly) .

2.  I removed all connection first and run this command.

 nbftsrv_config

3. Reboot the machine

4. run This Command the mark the target.

  nbhba -L

5. then connect my removed connection.

 

San Client.

Just enable the san client

/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bpclntcmd –sanclient 1

 

Please let me know the above procedure is ok or not.

 

Thanks

I cannot see how your setup will work without a SAN.

I do not have any experience with SAN client - just have the documentation that you have mentioned, plus these:

 

Best Practices for San Client Zoning and Scalibility
 
SAN Client Deployment - Best Practices and Performance Metrics
 
NetBackup SAN Client and Fibre Transport Troubleshooting Guide http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH51454 

 

Each bit of documentation says that a SAN is required.
