Master server is appliance 5240 on 3.2/8.2 and is acting as media server on this policy. Client is also 8.2
Policy has Backup Selection ALL_LOCAL_DRIVES as the only selection.
Backing up to MSDP on the master
Full and Differential jobs are generating a 71 for a particular directory. /run/user/13276/gvfs
In the detailed status I see
Jul 15, 2021 8:58:49 AM - Error bpbrm (pid=211980) socket close failed, Bad file descriptor (9)

@PaulStevens status 71 - none of the files in the file list exist [Status code reference]
And /run/user/13726/gvfs indicates a user-space mounted device on the server (gnome virtual file system). Is the file/directory still available on the file system? What do you get when do ls -l /run/user/13726/gvfs ? Secondly, do you need to backup that location?

We had kind of the same problem and as mentioned in the reply above "/run/user/13726/gvfs indicates a user-space mounted device on the server (gnome virtual file system)" and I don't think you can backup this folders.. therefore , you must exclude them if you don't want to get these errors.

I forgot to put the solution then, I have just added it now/

You will want to add an exclude for that "mount" but as it changes you will need a wildcard exclusion.
When you use ALL_LOCAL_DRVES, NetBackup uses the bpmount utility to determine all the local file systems. There is nothing under the /run that is really needed to be backed up as it is all transient data - the directory contains system information data describing the system since it was booted.
To exclude you will need to put something like "/run/user/*/gvfs" in the exclude_list file on the client as the number will change (depending on who is logged in), it is a specific mount point (one per user logged in) and is unreadable by ordinary means (lookup gvfsd-fuse if you want more details).

I do not have access on that server to create the exclude list. I did however, see in a tech note that the problem occurs with ALL_LOCAL_DRIVES combined with Allow Multiple Data Streams. I turned off Allow Multiple Data Streams and I got a successful backup. Since the systems in this policy are small, I did not see a noticeable increase in the backup time.

You should be able to use the bpgetconfig and bpsetconfig commands to retrieve and set an exclude list on Linux/Unix hosts without login access to the client. First I would recommend getting what is currently there (which may well be nothing - but just in case). Then edit the file and push it back.
# bpgetconfig -e /tmp/exclude.tmp <client>
# vi /tmp/exclude.tmp
# bpsetconfig -h <client> -e /tmp/exclude.tmp
If you want to restrict the exclude_list to a particular policy and/or schedule add the "-c <policy>" and "-s <schedule>" options to the bpsetconfig command - refer to the commands reference guide for more details.
