Windows Netbackup 9.1.0.1 Authorization Service wont start now after server went down.

Hello

Running netbackup 9.1.0.1 on a 2012R2 windows server.  One Master/Media server.

We were plugging power into a new server and for some reason our Netbackup (Dell 730 server) inadvertently went down.  Possible the fibre cables were sensitive and wasnt happy about being slightly jiggled / moved etc..  which cause the server to go down.  Server came back up but cant access the Netbackup Admin console.   looks like the Netbackup windows Authorization Service will not start. 

I see in the vxazd.log the following - 

8/11/2023 8:14:15 AM VxSS-vxazd ERROR V-18-3001 Authentication failed.

8/11/2023 8:14:17 AM VxSS-vxazd ERROR V-18-3001 Authentication failed.

8/11/2023 8:14:25 AM VxSS-vxazd LOG V-18-4204 Server is stopped

Any suggestions or possible solutions on why this would happen and how to correct it so I can login to the admin console.  I can see that Netbackup ran some jobs via our netbackup OPSCenter server.  All the necessary netbackup services are up except for the AUTHORIZATION Service.

 

Thanks

  • Veritas determined with the server crash caused some corruption -  They didnt give me the tech note as it was restricted and not public.

    Basically had me move out the following from the \Veritas\NetBackup\var\global\vxss\eab\data\systemprofile\certstore\keystore\

    PrivKeyFile*  (2 files) and then the PubKeyFile* (1 file) to a temp dir for safe keeping.

    Also had to move 

    \Veritas\NetBackup\var\global\vxss\eab\data\systemprofile\certstore\

    17daa386-localhost!1556!nbatd* to the temp folder also.

    Then do a bpup.exe -v -f

    The Authorization service is now running and stayed running.   The files I moved out are automatically recreated.
