Check all services are running (bpps -x) on that server that you are connecting to - if in doubt do a netbackup start (in the bin/goodies directory) but if pbx_exchange itself is not running you may need to start that first (pbx_exchanged start)

If all services were running then check for firewalls (local and on the server) in case something is just blocking your communications

If you are running the console on a PC with UAC enabled then remember to right click and rin as administrator

Hope this helps

Are you running Java 7.1
Unfortunately the same version of Java as the NetBackup is usually required.
I have had 3 different versions of Java on my desktop in order to support several netBackup environments.

VERITAS ain't it the truth?

did you miss the last line when you cut/paste the bpps -x output?

should be

The following example is from a Solaris 9 server running NetBackup 6.0:
# /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bpps -x
Shared VERITAS Processes
root 827 1 0 Sep 23 ? 1:26 /opt/VRTSpbx/bin/pbx_exchange

To stop thepbx_exchange daemon:
# /opt/VRTSpbx/bin/vxpbx_exchanged stop

To start thepbx_exchange daemon:
# /opt/VRTSpbx/bin/vxpbx_exchanged start

the prolbem was with /opt/VRTSpbx/bin/pbx_exchange, looks like something or someone removed it from the system as it wasnt installed crying

i've installed the packages again and all is now fine

Thanks for your help all!
