In playing a bit with Media server deduplication in NetBackup 7.0 GA, I have run into an issue where the Storage Server Configuration Wizard comes up with an error during the configuration phase, on Windows:
database system error.
RDSM has encountered an STS error: ioctl failed (2060017)
Here is a screenshot of the wizard in this state:
After reproducing this error a number of times on the same machine (reimaging in between tests), we had some engineers take a look at the system. As it turns out, the NBU 7.0 GA code, during the PD engine configuration, expects that the system is able to ping itself (have self name resolution). Not an unreasonable request, however in this case my host could not ping itself because it had an incorrect hosts file.
As it turns out, patches...
