Hi ,

 

NDMP backups are failing with error code 99. In detail status it is mentioned that failure is due to configuration failure(2) : RPC Error.

It looks like primary communication itself failing, try following

1>  Confirm tpautoconf -verify filer_ip_address  and tpautoconf -verify filer_name works

2> Add hosts file  shortname and fqdn entries on both Server and Filer side if required.

3> Confirm  forward and reverse lookup (shortname & fqdn ) works from both Server and Filer side.

4> Run bpclncmd -clear_host_cache on Master -Media Server 

5> Retry backup.
