Hello Everybody!!

 

I would like to know if somebody has faced this: 

We are configuring a Netbackup clustered server and it has worked during a failover. During a reboot of the active node  the netbackup servers failed over to the second node. the first node rebooted well but when we try to move the netbackup server services to the first node we have faced whit this message under the cluster log:

Can you please tel us the version of the Netbackup..

also verify the below ref link... I think the solution will be applicable for u

http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?pag...

 

Cause

NetBackup under a VCS cluster when a reboot is being performed (if all nodes rebooted at same time, or just the active node), it can cause chaos.  When a node is rebooted the NetBackup start/stop scripts starts NetBackup services outside of cluster.  As some services are upped the cluster gets confused and thinks NetBackup is already up and does not invoke the cluster online for the NetBackup resource.  This leaves NetBackup in a partial state and requires manual intervention to recover, if the clean up scripts are not being invoked.

Solution

This is an known issue which is being fixed for NetBackup release 7.5.0.7  (Symantec Etrack reference 3249871).  The solution being adopted is to make all services cluster aware, to ensure they will only come online on active node of cluster.

A workaround, move the NetBackup startup scripts from the startup locations.  For example, (Solaris) ' mv /etc/rc2.d/S77netbackup /etc/rc2.d/N77netbackup '.

Hello everybody,

 

I have applied that thecnote but it did not work. 

So I opend a support case and the problem was resolved. 

 

Actually the problen was the pbx_exchange process did start after reboot, so Symantec Support help me to check the enviroment and got that the pbx_exchante script was not located under /etc/rc2.d/S20vxpbx_exchanged -> /etc/init.d/vxpbx_exchanged

 

Thank you so much Symantec Support.
