Netbackup Virtual Appliance unable to backup on NBD for the VMs hosted on same ESXi host

Netbackup Virtual Appliance 8.3.0.1 hosted on ESXi host "abc"

Backup runs perfect on hot-add while it fails on NBD mode, tried moving the appliance to another ESXi host "def" and still same behaviour for the VMs hosted on "def".

Any way by which I can force it to use NBD instead of hot-add. I know that hot-add is faster and puts additional load too on ESXi host for processing but I prefer to use NBD for my setup.

Any suggestions please.

Hi @dipendra 

Could it be as simple as the media server is unable to connect to the ESXi host (via port 902). 

Cheers

Probably. Or the esx hosts cannot resolve the media server hostnames or vice versa.

Enable vxms logs and check.
