Error while performing duplication

Please advise on below error while performing duplication.

 

 /usr/seos/bin/sesudo bkuptapedupimages.pl -t C05582

an invalid entry was encountered

Usage: vmquery [-h <volume_database_host>,...,-h <volume_database_host>]

[-b | -w | -W | -l]

{

-a |

-m <media_id> |

-v <volume_group> |

-rn <robot_number> |

-rt <robot_type> |

-mt <media_type> |

-p <pool_number> |

-pn <pool_name> |

-vltcid <vault_container_id> |

-res <robot_type> <robot_number> <robot_control_host>

<robot_coord1> <robot_coord2> |

-assignbyid <media_id> <media_type> <pool_number> <status>

<assigntime> |

-deassignbyid <media_id> <pool_number> <status>

}

CAUTION: The act of unassigning volumes may lead to inconsistencies

between the application media database and volume database,

leading to the possibility for data loss. You must expire the

media from an application interface.

Re: Error while performing duplication

Is this a PERL script or a canned NetBackup command? If it's a PERL script, can you show us the content?

Re: Error while performing duplication

Hi Friend,
 
This is a Perl Script made to perform Duplication,We are now trying to perform bpimport phase1 on this tape & attempt to Duplicate the same.Many Thx for quick response :-)

Re: Error while performing duplication

your "error" message concerns an invalid usage of the command vmquery. Check the command string to see what is not a valid argument. The line includes a "-t" perhaps it is suppose to be "-mt" which is VALID for vmquery
 
bash-2.05$ sudo vmquery -help
unrecognized option -help
Usage: vmquery [-h <volume_database_host>,...,-h <volume_database_host>]
          [-b | -w | -W | -l]
          {
          -a |
          -m <media_id> |
          -v <volume_group> |
          -rn <robot_number> |
          -rt <robot_type> |
          -mt <media_type> |

Re: Error while performing duplication

Definitely syntax error with vmquery command. Look into your script to check what are you trying to perform with vmquery command.


There isn't any need to run vmquery to perform duplication of a tape. What all this script does other than duplication?
Is this a script which was woking in 5.x environment and now you brough it to 6.0 and running into issues?

Re: Error while performing duplication

Hi Rakesh,
 
I guess you got that one,the script was actually moved from Netbackup 5.x to Netbackup 6.x .Can you Advise further.
 
BTW Thankyou guys.I feel very glad i joined this forum Smiley Happy

Re: Error while performing duplication

You will have to send your script contents to look at (copy and paste).
