After upgrading the NetBackup client to NetBackup 10 Vendor method is not working for archive backup. We have upgrade the client from NetBackup 8.1.1 to 10. Only one node is upgraded. Still archive backups get success in node 2. In node one Archive backup not starts. Vendor method is configured for the LOGARCHMETH2. Please check the following output for the configured archive methods and status.

$ db2 get db cfg for xmndb | grep -i logarc

Level 4

Are you positive the upgrade was the cause?

Last week I upgraded a client from 8.2 to and the DB administrator claimed the upgrade was the cause of the archiving stopping. Meanwhile, the logs stopped 20 minutes prior to my upgrade. In my case, there wasn't anything wrong with Netbackup. All configuration was correct and unchanged but after he stopped and started the DB (due to planned work) the archiving started working again.

Thank you for your reply. We requested a downtime to bounce the DBs. Will let you know if it work.

Create UNIX: /usr/openv/netbackup/logs/bpdb2

make sure db2 can write in the area, no restart of services is required. The log files will tell what happens from the Netbackup side.

Bouncing DBs did not resolved the issue.

Then as Nicolai mentioned, get the bpdb2 logs.
