snapshot error 156

Created: 29 Nov 2012 | 4 comments


I am having problem in running a backup on a windows 2008 client which is failing with ec156.I have already unchecked option under client attributes.

"Enable windows open file backup for this client" .Now the job has failed with ec 50.Master is SUN solaris 10.NBU 6.5.

Any suggestions please.

Hi, Just for our information.

Error Code is 50.

bperror -S 50

client process aborted
The client backup terminated abnormally. For example, this error occurs if a NetBackup master or media server is shut down or rebooted when a backup or restore is in progress.

Go to windows 2k8 client & check snapshot status on OS level.

run on win2k8 client -- vssadmin create shadows /For=E: /Retry=2 ( Run For All Drives )

if above command fail then we need to work on OS level (wintel team)

If this post has helped you, please vote or mark as solution.

Before break-up, make sure you have a good backup.....  ;-)

You could also look in the bpfis log on the client ....

You should also look to upgrade. NetBackup 6.x is now out of support since Oct 2012
