Image import failure - client process aborted(50)

I receive the following when I attempt to import different images from tape. 

Some images are on a single tape and others are on multiple tapes.

On the multiple tape images the first tape seems to read until completed and then fails when the next tape is loaded.  

Also:

Phase 1 imports run without error on all the tapes

Phase 2 imports give me something like the following:

11/20/2015 9:45:07 AM begin import

client process aborted (50)  

 

I also sometimes receive the following message:

Error bptm(pid=6788) NBJM returned an extended error status: invalid request detected by JM (820)
Info bptm(pid=6788) EXITING with status 252  <-------------------------------------------

 

The tapes were written on a server running NetBackup  6.5.5 if that would have any impact.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks!

  • Just a thought, user initiated operations such as import or duplications run as the Windows user if using the Windows admin console. If the user's session closes, those processes would close as well.

    Either run from cmd line cron job, java admin console or do not close the RDP session out.

    Is this what is happening to you?

  • Status code 50 is usally seen when a Netbackup process is aborten of some kind - like core dump

    Check Windows event log for errors

    Try running the follwoing command to trace what the job did

    # vxlogview -p 51216 -X "jobid=12345" 

    Jobid the the job number in the activity monitor.

  • Please ensure that bptm and bpbrm log folders exist on the media server where you are running the import.

    Increase logging level to 3.

    The logs should give an indication of progress up to the point where it failed.

    Please copy logs to .txt files and upload as File attachments.

  • Please copy bptm and bpbrm logs to .txt files and upload them as File attachments.

    PS: 
    Is there a firewall between media server and the master?

  • Additional information

    Master/Media Server Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise  NetBackup 7.5.0.7

     

    After switching to logging level 3 the log shows:

    Type: Media Device       Severity: Error          Unable to access drive IBM.Ulltrium-td4.004, drive is locked

     

    The error occurs after two hours of importing file one and starting file 2

     

    -----------------------

    vxlogview  shows at the failure time approx two hours after start:

     

    [ForeignJob::cancelJob] (0000000003D04670) cancel job, status=50(ForeignJob.cpp:136)

    V-117-239 [ForeignJob::terminateThisJob] terminated job, jobid=7804, status=50

     

    I do not see an ERROR, FAILED, or FAULT code in the vxlogview
