Problem with seedutil on 5230 appliance

I've got a problem with seedutil command on NB 5230 appliance with NB 7.6.0.4. We would like to optimize first backup of WAN clients but seedutil returns "Error: PdvfsMount failed: Invalid argument". I tested in on my lab environment with NB 7.6.0.4 and everything works fine..

Apologies again for another

Apologies again for another basic question - did you choose 'complete override' and for how many hours? 

As you can see - root is the owner and each folder in the path has rwx permission for root. 
So, 'elevate' should make you root in effect and the execute permission on each folder will allow you to cd into it.

Output of whoami:

appmaster:/disk/databases/catalog # whoami
root

You did not tell us which

You did not tell us which seedutil options you used? 

Or if you double-check case-sensitive client names and policy names?

Apologies - I do realize that you have higher than average NBU skill level, but you have given us nothing to work with...

seedutil -v 9 -seed -sclient

seedutil -v 9 -seed -sclient SOURCE_CLIENT -spolicy BACKUP_POLICY -dclient DESTINATION_CLIENT

I will try the same command

I will try the same command on our demo 5220 with 2.6.0.4 a bit later...
I will need to create a policy for new client or modify existing policy.

Will let you know.

Could be that your logging

Could be that your logging level is too high?

All I did differently was to specify level 5.

My test scenario:

Existing successful backup for client name Marianne-PC in policy MvdB.

Created new policy for client name Martin-LT.

Command:

/usr/openv/pdde/pdag/bin/seedutil -v 5 -seed -sclient Marianne-PC -spolicy MvdB -dclient Martin-LT

Result (after some output scrolled on the screen):

Copied 44 files from the policy "MvdB" on client "Marianne-PC" to "Martin-LT"
Use the "-list_images <client name>" option to view details.

Marianne.. Could you send me output from "ls -al" /disk/database/catalog/2/ from your test appliance ?
