Netbackup 7.5 - VMWARE policy failing

Created: 20 Sep 2012 • Updated: 23 Sep 2012 | 2 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

Recently upgrade from 7.1 to Netbackup Now 2 of our VMWARE consolidated back up polices do not work.  These 2 polices are query based.

Error that keeps coming up is - the backup failed to back up the requested files(6)

Below are the things ive tried which all give me the same result.

- New manual policy and only selected 1 vmware
- Switched the policy type from vmware to flashbackup-windows etc
- Tried different transport modes
- Specifiying port numbers for the ESX server
- Played around with the schedule types (Calander to frequence) etc

I turned up the logging to MAX and attached the files.

Hope someone can help

After upgrading to NetBackup, VMware Backups start failing with "the backup failed to back up the requested files(6)" reported.

EEB needed

Tip: Get overview/document your NBU environment. Run 'nbsu' and review the output.
