This issue has been solved. See solution.

 

Below files are skipping from a linux virtual server (behind firewall).
 
Mater server:linux(7.1)
client(7.1)
 
What could be done to avoid this?

These are probably in process memory files. Special files

 

READ these TECHNOTES and read them again. If you are not sure about any of the concepts discussed in them speak with a Unix/Linux admin.

Found these on Google.

Tip: Get overview/document your NBU environment. Run 'nbsu' and review the output.

You don't do anything with these files, they are always skipped and do not need to be backed up.

They are not quite tmp files, but you can consider them as such.

As already stated, you don't want these backed up so them being skipped is good.

If you want to avoid the message in the Detailed Status, add the files or directory into the /usr/openv/netbackup/exclude_list so bpbkar never attempts to access them.
