Problem setting up Netbackup SSO (Shared Storage Options)
Our Netbackup system is version 220.127.116.11. We have 2 tape library (HP ESL322e) connect using SAN. We already had up running drives running as SSO (setup by our System Integrator). Two of drives on the TL being shared between 2 server , one running Solaris 10 the other one AIX 6.1. in site A. There is another pair with the similar configuration on site B.
One day our HP did firmware upgrade to TL on site A. The upgrade was not smooth, I had to reconfigure again the connection on Solaris 10 (but the AIX was fine).
The problem if I setup individual tape drive to the Solaris or AIX, the backup could run fine. Then I did the SSO with configuration like 1 only for solaris, another 1 only for AIX, but 2 other dirves I config as SSO. Then I test the backup on Solaris , it supposed can see 2 drives (1 single, 1SSO). I fired first backup it run on the Solaris, but when I run the second drive, it won' go that SSO drive, it keep on waiting for resources.
10/23/2013 16:17:16 - awaiting resource ESL025_EBS6_MPX. Waiting for resources.
Reason: Drives are in use, Media server: ebs6-bck,
Robot Type(Number): TLD(1), Media ID: N/A, Drive Name: N/A,
Volume Pool: test1, Storage Unit: ESL025_EBS6_MPX, Drive Scan Host: N/A,
Disk Pool: N/A, Disk Volume: N/A
notes: ebs6 is the Solaris media server.
What i did wrong? Why it cannot use that SSO drive?
Thank you and regards,
