I have seen this causing

I have seen this causing issues since NBU 3.1 days.
You can see that the 1st IP address that is returned for hostname netbackup-srv is 1.1.1.99. This IP is returned by TCP/IP and NetBackup tries to use it.
Follow Rajesh's advice and add hosts entries. Give another name in the hosts file to the standby IP - something like
1.1.1.99 netbackup-srv-sb
1.4.0.2 netbackup-srv
192.168.11.108 netbackup-srv-remote

Only assign the netbackup-srv name to the IP that must be used for outgoing and incoming NBU comms.

Where's the error?


Your output looks normal altho' appears to have 'stopped' at connecting. Or is that the issue?

Is this a new client?

Has the backup ever worked?

I can certainly see an EC25 "Cannot connect on socket" error.

What is the OS of the client? If Windows, can you confirm that the NB client service is running?

Firewall interfering or possible network connectivity or name resolution issues - see the following TechNote on the use of bpclntcmd, telnet etc etc to help resolve these:
In-depth Troubleshooting Guide for Exit Status Code 25


You could also try bptestbpcd -client client -verbose -debug from the master & post the output here.

From the logs it says 


From the logs it says  "cannot connect on socket" , this clearly stats that there is some communication problem between your master server and client .

Try to browse the client properties from master server .

check the belwo commands ,

Run the command from your master server : bpclntcmd -hn (client name)

bpclntcmd -get_pbx_port (client name)

Tell me the windows version of your client .

Three IP addresses assigned


Three IP addresses assigned to the same host name? 
host netbackup-srv: netbackup-srv.xxxxxx.com at 1.1.1.99 (0x63010101)
host netbackup-srv: netbackup-srv.xxxxxx.com at 1.4.0.2 (0x2000401)
host netbackup-srv: netbackup-srv.xxxxxx.com at 192.168.11.108 (0x6c0ba8c0)

Which interface is TCP/IP going to use when connecting to netbackup-srv? Which interface must be used for connect-back?
Each interface should be bound to a unique hostname and own IP address.

Hi , As per the output PBX

Hi ,

As per the output PBX is listening properly . But i think due to three network interfaces it's getting confused .

Ping the client from your system and findout excatly which is the IP it's using . Then you add the same IP in master server host file (i.e. system32\drivers\etc\hosts)  , in host file you 1st add the IP address and then host name , save and close the host file . After this try the backup , it would resolve your issue . If still you have issue then try the below steps ,


open the client properties of "netbackup-srv"  from master server and then go to the universal setting tab in that right side you can see that a option 'use specified network interface' in that give the IP address 192.168.11.108 which is from the output given above . Then the client will communicate only with this IP address . Then you can try backup .

Rajesh

Hi Marianne, host


Hi Marianne,

host netbackup-srv: netbackup-srv.xxxxxx.com at 1.1.1.99 (0x63010101)  --> IP standby (still active) and never used
host netbackup-srv: netbackup-srv.xxxxxx.com at 1.4.0.2 (0x2000401) --> Line transfer backup from agent or client nbu (LAN transfer backup)
host netbackup-srv: netbackup-srv.xxxxxx.com at 192.168.11.108 (0x6c0ba8c0) --> IP for line copy sharing data and for line remote assistence

and Rajesh,
You are correct. nbu server and nbu client have same hostname (netbackup-srv).

Before I upgrade from version 6.5 to 7. Job error never happened like this. Whether this is a bug from netbackup 7 ?
