URGENT: issue with BAR on Ubuntu 12.0.4 VM
I have a great issue with a case that our Master Partner opened for a very important italian customer that has a great NBU install base for both physical and virtual environments.
Our customer would like to launch a service for his final customers, consisting in Infrastructure as a Service: they will sell VM, based on Ubuntu 12.0.4 (vCloud 5.1) and different backup service levels, sold at different prices. Operating System MUST be Ubuntu.
One of this service level (the most complete and expensive for final users) will include the Self Backup of the VMs, through the BAR interface on that VMs
NBU version: 188.8.131.52
If you try launch BAR, jbpSA for BAR is not working for the client .
Here the nbj logs have the following error -
BpjavaLoginModule:Setting ServerRequest debug:262144
Connecting to vnetd service over PBX port = 1556
ServerInterface:Logon:Exception encountered null
ServerInterface:Logon - Initial host:null, Current host:ubutst, PBX port:1556
Can not connect to the NB-Java authentication service on ubutst on port 1556. Exception:"
From Software Compatibility list it seems that Ubuntu is supported (see please page 13 at http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=TECH76648), but we found that Client support is guaranteed while BAR not.
What we tried:
Nevertheless our partner asked Support to see if it was possible to force the jbpSA to use 13722 port and vnetd (after configuring bpjava-msvc - 13722 port - Xinetd services) instead of PBX (by modifying the nbj.conf for example): Support replied to try to remove in nbj.conf file the line PBX_PORT=1556 and leaving only VNETD_PORT=13724. We tried but we have another error: 520: invalid value for NB-java configuration option PBX_PORT:NULL.
Support finally replied that as BAR GUI is not supported on UBUNTU, we don’t have any other chances…
Do you have any suggestion or workaround on this? I believe there is something real “stupid” to be configured, because GUI works if we point, for example, Master or another client…so there is something on the internal authentication that doesn’t work with PBX. If you never faced this kind of issues, is there any PM that can help us by interfacing Engineering?
Without BAR GUI on Ubuntu our customer will not be ready to launch this service thus impacting his revenues…
Please let me know and many thanks in advance for your collaboration.
