Check Client Connect and Client Read Timeouts on the media server - default of 300 (5 minutes) is hardly ever enough for database backups.
Change both Timeouts to at least 1800 (30 minutes).

Supporting Storage Foundation and VCS on Unix and Windows as well as NetBackup on Unix and Windows

post dbclient logs with high verbosity

Confirm with DBA there isn't any maintenance scheduled  (hourly or whichever that collides with NBU schedule)

if manual works, try changing schedule and check

increase timeouts for VDI as well for larger databases
