Netbackup drive going down randomly



In netbackup media server one of the drive is going down after few days randomly

Please suggest how can we troubleshoot this problem



  • As per huanglao2002's post above - you need to move all cleaning tapes to the None pool and change media type to Cleaning tapes.  Because your cleaning tapes were added to NBU as normal backup tapes, NBU will try to use them for backups and cause issues like you've been experiencing.

    Please move cleaning tapes as explained above and create a Barcode Rule so that inventory will add any tapes starting with CLN as Cleaning tapes.

    Once you have sorted this out, test again with valid backup tapes.
