Netbackup master lost connection to media server and all clients

Hi all.

My master server recently lost all connections to all clients and media server (socket open failed).

Media server is NBU 5320 appliance.

BPTESTBPCD on any client returns the following (bptestbpcd with debug in attached file):

D:\Program Files\Veritas\NetBackup\bin\admincmd>bptestbpcd -client soslbck001 -verbose
<16>bptestbpcd main: Function ConnectToBPCD(soslbck001) failed: 8506
<16>bptestbpcd main: The certificate has expired.
<16>bptestbpcd main: Unable to perform peer host name validation. Curl error has occurred for peer name: soslbck001, self name: SOSLBCK02: 8506
[PROXY] Encountered error (VALIDATE_PEER_HOST_PROTOCOL_RUNNING) while processing(ValidatePeerHostProtocol).: 1
The certificate has expired. 

Certificates are OK and none is expired.

    Just curious, what was going on with the master server when this happened?

    Is your master server's time correctly configured?
