Hi team,

I believe you are aware of the bug in Ntebackup 7.7.3

https://www.veritas.com/support/en_US/article.000109333

I will install the EEB, However I am looking for command line work around. I tried bpplschedrep <policy-name> <sched-label> -0 <start time in seconds(11 PM)> <duration in seconds(7 hours)>

But i am getting overlap schedule error. Any suggestions

Have you seen the 'Workaround' section of the TN?

Workaround:
If this issue is experienced with NetBackup 7.7.3, please download and apply the appropriate hotfix attached to this document.

......
If you are not able to apply the hotfix or EEB, deleting and re-creating the Calendar schedule with the desired window should work.

@Marianne,

I already tried the workaround it didn't work so thought of trying it from command line and eliminate the JAVA GUI completely.

The TN mentions 2 possible workarounds. Which one did not work?

@Marianne

2?, Are you referring as installing EEB as the other work around, if yes then I haven't tried that yet, getting it approved, However meanwhile I want to change the window, How can I?

The workaround is to delete schedule and re-create it:

>deleting and re-creating the Calendar schedule with the desired window should work.

but you showed that you tried to modify  schedule with bpplschedrep command. You need to use  bpplsched command

Hello @Sid1987,

 

Please use the following command to set the backup window until get the EEB installed. 

Do let me know in case of any issues.

 

bpplschedrep Policy1 schedule1  -pool pool1 -rl 2 -mpxmax 32 -cal 1 -incl date -5 68400 43200

-5 is a day

68400 and 43200 are seconds , you may have to covert your hours to seconds to set the start and end timings.

Even after implementing the EEB I am unable to change the schedule.

Hi @Sid1987,

Are you able to upgrade from NBU 7.7.3 to 8.0? Maybe it can solve your problem, once that you already have applied the EEBs and workarounds.

Actually there are 2 EEB's for this issue, one on master server and one needs to installed on the server running java gui(standalone).
