bpmedia command

Hi,

While running command bpmedia command to unfreeze the nedia geting the below given message.Please suggest.

bpmedia -unfreeze -m <media id>
requested media id is not assigned to this host in the EMM database

  • 1. Use nbemmcmd to list the media server record for the media ID.  If the Last Write Host hostname appears as NONE or is blank, yet there is a value for Time Assigned, this indicates an incomplete EMM media record.

    nbemmcmd
     
    Unix: /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/
     
    Windows: <Install_dir>\NetBackup\bin\admincmd
     

     
    Command syntax example and output:
     
    nbemmcmd -listmedia -mediaid 000538

     

    2. Determine if the media ID exists in the merge table.  If the media ID appears in this listing, then a different issue exists - do not proceed further.  Contact Symantec Technical Services for assistance with getting this media ID out of the merge table. 

     
    nbemmcmd
     
    Unix: /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/

  • Try using the -h option

    bpmedia -unfreeze -m <media id> -h {media who late wrote to the tape}

    The owner can be found in the media manager section of the Netbackup GUI.

  • Or go into the Admin Console - find the tape in the Media Section - right click - unfreeze

  • but when I check the media owner name, it shows none in GUI. any other way to check the media manger ?

  • Is the media actually frozen?

    Is it an old cold catalog backup

    Show us the output of vmquery -m media_id

  • Check output of following commands:

    bpmedialist -m <media-id>

    nbemmcmd -listmedia -mediaid <media-id>
