nbrestorevm -ir_listvm failed to get instant recovery identifier ....cannot connect on socket 25

i have started VM instant recovery from VMware Web plugin and it is working properly and machine is up and running.

i have successfully migrated the VM to another datastore on VMware.

now i need to complete the VM instant recovery job on the Netbackup Master server.

when i run command: nbrestorevm –ir_listvm to get the Instant Recovery ID, the following error is the output

cannot connect on socket (25) to the Master server name

which is weird as i am running this command on the master server.

  • Hello,

    in case of Windows Master, verify your cmd is launched via Run as Admin.

    If NBAC is implemented, verify that you are also logged in via bpnbat -login.

      Thanks Michal. That works perfectly to me after login on CMD with bpnbat -login.

      all commands worked properly after that.
