@BackupMikko | 06 May 2013 | 0 comments

How far along are you on your virtualization journey? Most organizations already have more than half of their systems virtualized and are currently virtualizing their most business critical applications.

Now you are facing the challenge of keeping your ever-expanding virtual environment protected while providing the required service level for the business critical physical systems. Managing two separate isolated environments increases complexity and introduces potential for gaps in the data protection strategy if not carefully planned and implemented.

A poorly planned data protection strategy will not only increase risk to the data but will also consume more storage, restrict your recovery options and increase the time spent managing the environment. This is why it is important to understand the options and pitfalls when building a data protection strategy for virtual and mixed environments.

Host-level Integration and Virtual Machine optimized...

The backups have begun to fail consistently with the following error:
Error bpbrm (pid=16758) db_FLISTsend failed: system call failed (11)
 

I have found that the directory, /opt/openv/netbackup/db/images, is pegged at 100%. What suggestions might you have to recover from this situation?

 

Thank you,

Hi Guys

Many people and myself many times came through this error

i have also locked the call to symantec and ask on forum , they told me the same.

when i ran the command vssadmin list writers

it gives Microsoft Exchange Writer: Retryable Error

, i have checked many symantec tech notes on it .

and in short i summarised it that we have to reboot the exchange server 

Find the TECH NOTE here

http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=TECH181190

 

Cause

This issue is normally caused because the “Microsoft Exchange Writer” is not working properly. You can verify its status with the “vssadmin list writers” command: 

Writer name: 'Microsoft Exchange Writer'
Writer Id: {76fe1ac4-15f7-4bcd-987e-8e1acb462fb7}

Automating Netbackup Installation without user intervention in 7.X  :

As we all know netbackup client installation can be performed using 

1) Install_client_files 

2 ) Or mounting the cdrom and performing installation using ./install .

                    The problem with above two methods is either we have to add client to policy or installation expects response constantly from user . I have a requirement to perform netbackup installation without user intervention .My requirement is to installation netbackup client software on 500 servers as part of baseline even before these are added any domain .  I have achieved this by editing "install" script code providing by netbackup .

    This helped in installing netbackup as part of base line along with OS . 

Summary of tasks to do to...
