VxMS NTFS Mapping Plug-in Warning Event ID: 4183
Are these messages indicative of a problem or not? If so, what? If not, why?
There is an old thread on this site without useful answers (URL: https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/forums/event-id-4183-hunh). Another thread (URL: https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/forums/vxms-ntfs-mapping-plug-cannot-be-found) didn't help either. The latter references a tech note (URL: http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=TECH87298) which does not apply since this message (below) is not on a Microsoft clustered server.
I am starting a new thread hoping someone else is getting this warning message and can explain it.
I always get four of these messages in the Windows System Log when the NetBackup media server starts its scheduled backup.
Event Type: Warning

The description for Event ID ( 4183 ) in Source ( VxMS NTFS Mapping Plug-in ) cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer, or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer, or contact the component manufacturer for a newer version. If the event was saved from another computer or forwarded from a remote computer, you might have to include display information with the events when saving them or when setting up the forwarding s Error: 0x00001057, in file .\NtfsFileByHandle.cpp, line 1836.
The media server is NetBackup 6.5.3 running on Windows Server 2003 R2. A search of the file system does not find a file named "NtfsFileByHandle.cpp". Googling either "VxMS NTFS Mapping Plug-in" or "NtfsFileByHandle.cpp" are also fruitless.
