vmoprcmd extall command hangs for specific media server
Before I detail the problem here are some details about my setup. The master server is AIX 5.3 with version 22.214.171.124 and the media server in question is RHEL 6.3 with 126.96.36.199 as well. This is a new media server install as well and hasn't yet been used for anything.
It seems that when running "vmoprcmd -h mediaserver -extall" on the master server that it hangs for along period of time before exiting with "network protocol error (39)". I enabled verbose logging for volmgr in vm.conf, the log directories under the debug directory and touched a bunch of "touch files" to enable more debug output but when this error occurs the only log file created on the media server is under the daemon folder and there isn't anything useful inside.
If I run tpconfig to display the device config on the media server (via the -l, -d or -dl options. I haven't tried any other options) the problem seems to temporarily go away. After some undetermined amount of time though if I again try to run "vmoprcmd -h mediaserver -extall" it will hang and time out again.
When first attempting to configure the robot and drives that are connected to this new media server my client had issues and crashed. I'm not sure if this problem is a result of that or the cause. After the first failed attempt to configure the robot and drives I deleted them from Netbackup and reinstalled the media server. After that I was able to successfully configure the robot and drives.
Here is the output from running the 'vmoprcmd -h mediaserver -extall' command:
