We've got the following situation:
We are doing a ndmp backup to tape with NetBackup 7.6.1.
The selection list looks like this:
What happens is that Path2 is backuped at the end (after Path30).
We had an issue with a Tape Drive - because of this Path2 failed first of all and at the end there was a second try of Path2 what succeded because another Drive was used.
Meanwhile the defect Tape Drive was replaced but unfortunately the behaviour that Path2 is backed up at the end is still there.
We have already cleaned the selection list, restarted NBU Services, typed in the selection list correctly (as it has been before).
Then the backup ran fine with the correct order - until the second backup.
After the second try everytime Path2 is backed up again after Path30.
We have already checked the "includes" file (\INSTALL\Veritas\NetBackup\db\class\Policyname)
There the order is also correct.
Does anyone have an idea why NetBackup is doing this?
Thank you very much!
Solved! Go to Solution.
If I understood you correctly, this started happening after the path2 failed sometime. If so you can actually recreate the whole policy and try.
Also if you have multiple tape drives you can make use of "allow multiple data stream" options and can run simultaneous backups. This can also change the behavior.
thank you very much for your answer.
We've create a completely new policy based on the desired backup sequence. This new policy works fine.
Now the question is: Why does NBU the faulty Volume at the following starts of Policy always at the end,although the order of the resources is still the same in the policy.
And the other question is: Do we have to create a new policy every time after we had an issue with a tapedrive? Or is that a bug in Netbackup 7.6.1?
