Hi all guys,

we does some changes (OS Unix support) in cluster configuration of our Netbackup Master server and now I am not able to start NBU services.

I am not skilled in Veritas Cluster and I ask you some indication to do troubleshooting.

Some informations:

nbu master HARDWARE LINUX_RH_X86
                   VERSION NetBackup 7.6.1.2

I found this clear post

I solved the issue with this tech note:

https://www.veritas.com/support/en_US/article.TECH48879

 

I went crazy, and finally I understand this file

/usr/openv/var/global/databases.conf

was blank and the NBU services does not could find NBDB and it does not able to start !!

It seems to me that Veritas Cluster is up and running.
NetBackup resource has a problem, not VCS.
 

What kind of changes were done at OS level? 
We need to know this as this might be the key to the 'broken state' of NBU.

What is the status of rest of resources - diskgroup, mount, IP, etc?
Does the IP resource resolve correctly to NBU master server hostname?

The error is saying that the resource 'became OFFLINE unexpectedly on its own'.

Why is that? Did anyone manually stop NBU? Outside of the cluster?

Because it was not VCS that stopped NBU, you need to find out what is wrong with NBU.

VCS attempted to restart NBU twice, but that also failed.

Have you tried to issue bpps while VCS is trying to start NBU?
Can you see which processes are starting?
Are certain processes starting and terminating again?
Which processes are not starting up?

Have you tried to online ALL resources except for NBU, and then start NBU manually from cmd?
What happens when you do that?

Please rather post in NetBackup forum when the issue is with NBU.
