Need help with NDMP backups

Master = Solaris 10  x86, NetBackup 6.5.6

Filer = os version "NetApp Release 7.3.2"

 

Having several issues with backups on 1 NetApp filer out of 2....

1  ::--->  Jobs hanging on mounting a tape...

2  ::--->  Jobs hanging with the following error(s)

socket read failed: errno = 62 - Timer expired

Note  ::--->  The other filer has no issues....

 

We have done the following.................

1  ::--->  Broke out all the streams with the "NEW_STREAM" directive...

2  ::--->  Increase the time out value by creating file "NDMP_PROGRESS_TIMEOUT" and

put in "1440"

 

http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=TECH21246

 

The following entries are in "ndmp.cfg"..........

NDMP_MOVER_CLIENT_DISABLE
NDMP_DISABLE_VNET_PING

 

Note  ::--->  Recycle of the environment does help out ....  Then it rear's it's ugly head after a day!

 

Thanks....

Basically (presuming nfs is enabled on the filer), from command line for the filer it would be using exportfs with whatever options, or from the GUI for the filer it is under NFS -> Add Export (then add rw access, root access & security details (hosts etc) for the path in question (e.g. /vol/vol0) then "export_all".

You would then just need to mount that export on the UNIX server that you specified as a rw/root host above, cd into the <nfs_path_for_/vol/vol0)>/etc/log & view the file "backup".

Probably not the issue, but as you mention you've added the NEW_STREAM directive I presume it is also the first entry in the backup selection list?

Anything in the backup log on the filer? (e.g. /vol/vol0/etc/log/backup - via nfs mount)

This might be a tape drive issue....  Even thou IBM said the tape drive is OK...

Getting Filer support to check hba...

 

I would like to set up NFS in order to access the logs on the filers...  Is there any document on this?

 

Thanks...
