Netbackup problem.

Created: 26 Dec 2012 | 2 comments

Hi everyone,

I'm having a problem with my backup job. The job keeps WRITING forever and when I check in DETAILED STATUS, it shows a list of status like "Info ndmpagent(pid=7248) hcm6040b: DUMP: Thu Dec 27 09:05:34 2012 : We have written 40940 KB"

This happens and other jobs cannot run with the error code 196 (backup windows closed). Can anyone help, please? Thanks in advance!

its looks like it is the NDMP backup..

you did not specify about the netbckup version on master /media  and OS.. also NAS Filer info.

please check the basic NDMP communication with the tpautoconf command and see  if its able to probe the server.

tpautoconf -probe ndmp_host_name

tpautoconf -verify ndmp_host_name

if netbckup version is earlier to 7.x you may need to use /usr/openv/volmgr/bin/ndmp_attr  to probe it.

and also please verify the ndmpagent logs.use below command to get the logs of ndmpagent

vxlogview -o 134 -t 02:00:00  to see last 2 hours logs. (chage the hours based on the situations.)

hope this helps.
