NBU 7.5 Sybase backup ERR - bphdb exit status =6

Hi, My Sybase backup failed with error from bphdb log as below. However the sybase_stderr files were empty.

Master Server = Windows 2008 and NBU 7.6.0.1

client = Windows 2008 both using NBU 7.5.0.5

 

from bphdb:

I'm googling for exit status 6, script exit status = -1 still.

Any ideas?

Thank you.

  • Hi Marianne,

    Thanks for the reply. I was having problem updating this forum, kept showing Unplublished.

    Anyway, this issue was resolved.

    Findings:
    a. Sybase online backups failed with below error on:
     - bpbrm log: bpbrm Exit: client backup EXIT STATUS 6: the backup failed to back up the requested files
     - bphdb log: <16> NcfProcess::impersonateSpawn: Unable to spawn command '"I:\NBU_Sybase_Scripts\sybase_PIP_backup.cmd"' error 2

    b. No event logged in OS event viewer.
    c. virtualname is the Windows virtual cluster name for nodeA and nodeB
    d. Cluster resources owner is currently nodeA but Drive I:\ is owned by nodeB causing Netbackup not able to connect to drive I:\.

    Actions performed:
    a. Copy NBU_Sybase_Scripts folder from drive i:\ to local drive D:\ on both servers nodeA and nodeB
    b. Re-map backup selection list for Sybase-PIP and Sybase-PIP-Log policies to D:\NBU_Sybase_Scripts.
    c. Test backups and both policies are currently running.

  • Is the error something to do with this statement " NcfProcess::impersonateSpawn: Unable to spawn command "?

    Tq.

  • Have you tried to run I:\NBU_Sybase_Scripts\sybase_PIP_backup.cmd by hand ?

    Some time it will give you error messages not shown in the logs
