NetBackup restores failing - buffer size/space?

Created: 21 Jan 2013 • Updated: 21 Jan 2013 | 8 comments

Hello.  I'm having a strange problem restoring some files to a Windows 2008 file server from NetBackup 7.1 (on Windows).

I am able to restore files individually, and if I rerun the failed job it appears to be different files that fail.   The file and print server is Windows 2008 and has NTFS compression enabled.  I know the Netbackup Agent is v6.5.4 at the moment.  Backups seem to be fine, it's the restores (and randomness) that I am finding a bit odd.  An example of the failure log from the backup server is as follows.  Any ideas?

hi,

you need to fix the space issue on the destination before attempting the next restore.

1) remove partial succesfull restore files from the destination

2)Make sure you have enough space on Destination

3)then start the restore job again.

check how it goes.

if it failes, show us the logs again...

Sorry, I should have clarified.  It's a 900GB partition with over 630GB free so there is plenty of space on the disk.

Thanks.

RamNagalla's picture

you would need to double check it.

1) space of the destination

2)did you specify the desired path that you what?

3) Destination client ?

 

then try retoring single small file, and see how it works.

if it still failes, please provide the screenshots of the destination location, and the restore steps.

Give us the filesystem details of your client fpssrv01, such as how much space left in C and D drives - use command line output to show us.

D: drive could have more space, but if D:\restore is a mountpoint from somewhere else and does not have that much of space, restore would fail with above errors.

Try restore onto other drives (C:, E:) and see how it goes. Basically Nagalla has provided most troubleshooting steps.

You are restoring to windows 2008, please check if you have rights to restore the file and have enough permission on the folder to restore it. Have you tried creating the folder and file in that folder where you are restoring to make sure permission is not the issue.

 I know the Netbackup Agent is v6.5.4 at the moment.  Backups seem to be fine

It won't harm to upgrade the agent(won't even need a reboot) and check again if it makes a difference. With windows 2008 I have seen intersting things.

Thanks for the suggestions - I'm raising this with Symantec support and will let you know how it goes.

I've checked drive space (C: 80GB (45GB free)  D: 900GB (619GB free)) and permissions and its OK - and if I try a re-run its different files that have issues though if we restore them individually they are fine.

Can you upgrade the client to the same level, create a tar folder on the client and try the restore again.Post the log file here once done.

Edit* Symantec will ask to upgrade the client as first thing as it is no longer supported. Please upgrade the client and check how it goes.

Hi Bertie

Welcome here!

I guess Symantec Support has also requested tar log file?

Please post here as well as File attachment and let us know the outcome of the support call?
