Optimized Synthetic Backups failing with error 79 for automounted file systems
Optimized Synthetic Full backups failing with error 79 for all automounted file systems
Whiles using multistreams and ALL_LOCAL_DRIVES.
Regular Full backups and Incremental backups completed successfully.
When trying to generate a Synthetic Full backup , all the streams generated for automounted file systems will fail with error 79.

Filesystem 1024-blocks Free %Used Iused %Iused Mounted on
/export/apps/scripts 1441792 331472 78% 36201 32% /apps/scripts
Note that the filesystem /export/apps/scripts (to the left) has been auto mounted or manually mounted as /apps/scripts
The original file system /export/apps/scripts is backing up and synthesizing successfully.
/export/apps/scripts => /apps/scripts are the same
Netbackup is seeing /apps/scripts as an unsupported image format for Optimized Synthetic Full backups , resulting in only this stream failing with error code 79.
Any suggestions how to get rid of that error ?
How to indicate Synthetic full backup to ignore automomounted filesystem as a regular full or incremental backup will do ?
