As a preparation for upgrade from NetBackup 5.1 to 6.5.4 I have performed catalog consistency check. Of course my catalog is not consistent. Currently I have error "CONSISTENCY_ERROR Integ_5_2". Does anyone know what are explanations of errors returned by NBCC? Does anyone have list of catalog consistency errors?
and it comes back with errors, your best course of action is to opena case with Symantec support, and they will examine the output of the NBCC utility and instruct you on how to correct the inconsistencies.
(& there are some of these errors on the Web, but nothing for this one)
Some are 'insignificant' and can easily be ignored (ephemeral tape statuses), some easily rectified by the 'user', others only by intervention of Symantec Support - if we had a list we could cut down of some of your work Symantec!
Can you see in any of the output/logs anything that may indicate where the issue is? I'm sure with the NBCC I ran before going from 5.1 to 6.5 there was some indication where the issue was - it was some time ago tho' so maybe it was Support that advised me of this also!
Dug out my old e-mail archives & I did indeed send off the NBCC output bundle (zip) to Support for their evaluation & they returned a txt file for me to check through. Not sure if this was something that was already in the bundle or whether it was the result of some black-magic that Support performed! In our instance it was just a couple tapes that were the issue "***WARNING*** Tapes in mediaDB or image DB that are not assigned in the volDB" & so was a straight-forward fix.
I opened case in Symantec support, and they examine the output and send request about new nbcc output then examine and request and examine and .....
I get error at point 5.8 Processing Media DB, pass 2 (of 3), 446 records to be processed CONSISTENCY_ERROR Integ_5_2
NBCC (collector), NBCCR (repair tool) and NBCC( analysis tool).
First two are given to all customers, but these are dumb tools.
The NBCC analysis tool performs automated analysis of the files were collected by the collector tool and produces an SRA (suggested repair action) file, which can be used by NBCCR.
NBCC collector's output is not something human-readable, it's optimized for automated processing by the analysis tool, that's why everyone opens case with support.
