Problem with deregistering boot server

Created: 04 Sep 2013 • Updated: 23 Dec 2013 | 3 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

I want to deregister the boot server of AIX with netbackup 7.0. My master server in Windows 2008.

While I issuing the command "./bmrsetupboot -deregister"  on AIX boot server it shows the following error

[Error] V-127-72 A boot server that is currently hosting Shared Resource Trees cannot be deleted.
Please delete all the Shared Resource Trees hosted by the boot server, and retry the operation.

Could ant one give me the solution?

As noticed, you need to delete SRT that is hosted on this boot server. Run bmrsrtadm and follow its instructions.

If you dont want to preserve the SRTs, then

1. On bootserver, delete the SRT's on bootserver using bmrsrtadm then try "bmrsetupboot -deregister"


2. From masterserver fire bmrs as follows. This command deletes the SRTs and then deregisters that bootserver.

         bmrs -operation delete -resource bootserver -name <bootserverName> -force

If you want to preserve the SRTs, for future use, before deregistering, create copy of the each required SRT on boot server in TAR file as follows:

         Create the tar out of the SRT folder with "tar -cvfd <tarfilename> <SRTFolder>" command.

In future, you can extract the tar file and then import that SRT using bmrsrtadm.
