Level 1

Same issues..



one media server and it is running on windows 2016.
Source data domain
destination emc ecs

worst thing is when i execute bpduplicate jibs stay in queue and failed with error 40 and its nit case of duplicate from dd to ecs but dd to dd also same issue.

dup is not working at all. so is there any config ia missing.

Hi @akhileshojha 

Status 40 is connection broken - which could be a firewall/network issue, check that any firewalls between the master, media and DD devices are configured correctly. 

How many DD devices are involved? For DD to DD duplication, most of the process is handled by the DD devices themselves (NetBackup merely tells the DD to duplicate the backup and then waits to be told it is done). Can you check to see if the duplication actually occurs but the response is not communicateed back to NetBackup correctly. 

If this is a critical issue, then please oppen a support case.

Also, if you want more help here, you really need to provide more information when asked (you haven't answered @quebek question). This can provide the clues for the community to solve your issue.


Hi, i ran some test backups on cloud storage to confirm and seems its failing with below error.

Cloud storage :- EMC ECS

do i need to add any certificate for cloud storage.

bptm logs attached.

Hi @akhileshojha 

What is the type of storage (AWS S3 ???) attached to the ECS volume? From the bptm log it appears as though it is retention locked (although I could be wrong).

So how is the DD ECS device defined in NetBackup - has it been configured for retention lock? (this has been asked and you have still not provided any detail on the configuration - randomly providing log files may work but is not that helpful without the details). 


It is EMC ECS S3.
configuration :-
1. Configured ECS as clod storage in netbackup.

when i configure cloud storage using SSL option selected disk pool gets configured but when i dont select ssl option uts failin on credentials., so i believe we need certificate to update under .perm file.

The problem with all this is that the core idea here is wrong: removing duplication is a useful result of building abstractions, but it's not the main reason why we do it, and the "spot duplication  wrap in a function class  module  give it a name" workflow is not a very good one.
