Status Code 25: cannot connect on socket

Master Server: udin06  - (Solaris10 – NBU 7.1)

Client: sdib, or sdin (two interfaces, B at end is the backup interface) – Solaris10

Backup failing with Status 25, cannot connect or socket. Through GUI hostproperties too, it doesnt connect.

IP address and Names have been changed for security reasons.

I won’t be able to provide the logs, but let me know what specifically are you loking for? Or give me sometime, i’ll change few things and would post asap. Would appreciate if it could be done without the logs cause they’re too big to change IPs and hostnames. Although the problem doesn’t seem difficult to tackle but I’ve spent days just to get this error fixed, but all in waste. Seems like a firewall issue but not sure.

All the commands were run from Master server.

Me@udin06:/usr/openv/netbackup/bin> sudo ./bpclntcmd -hn sdib01

host sdib01: at

aliases:     sdib01


Me@udin06:/usr/openv/netbackup/bin> sudo ./bpclntcmd -hn sdin01

host sdin01: at

aliases:     sdin01


Me@udin06:/usr/openv/netbackup/bin> sudo ./bpclntcmd -ip

Me@udin06:/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd> sudo ./bptestbpcd -client sdin01

Me@udin06:/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd> sudo ./bptestbpcd -client sdib01





Me@udin06:/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd> telnet sdin01 bpcd


telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused


Me@udin06:/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd> telnet sdib01 bpcd


telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection timed out 

  • This means udin06 can not communicate with sdib01. There are no available route from udin06 to sdib01.
    You should talk with network team, and OS team as well.
