its saying that the gnnmis41-bkp is unknow client.

What is your current version of Netbackup?

1. Try deleting gnnmis41-bkp client from configurd policy. Re-add the client from the list of VM's.

2. Run a test backup.

3. if it still fails, try to create a manual snapshot for the VM.

4. ensure enough disk space exist in diskstore for the VM.

That should resolve the issue.
