Our setup is as follows..
NBU version - 184.108.40.206
master server - Windows 2008 64 bit
Media server - Windows 2008 64 Bit
We have MSDP in our environment which is on SAN from san disks from one storage array which are combined on OS level as 1 san disk.
We had run into a MSDP pool becomming full last year, we were able to increase the disk pool that time and NBU detected it.
We ran into the same issue this time, however now NBU is not able to detect the new space in MSDP.
I followed the procedure in article https://www.veritas.com/support/en_US/article.00007280. The operating system on media server is able to see the increased MSDP partition with new space, however NBU is not.
I restarted the Master server and media server as well, same issue.
The current size of the MSDP partition on media server is 32 TB , before increase it was 21 TB.
When i try to querry the current size of the disk pool, i get the below error
C:\Program Files\veritas\netbackup\bin\admincmd>nbdevconfig -inventorydp -stypePureDisk -dp pool_name
RDSM has encountered an issue with STS where the server was not found: getDiskVolumeInfo failed to inventory disk pool, invalid command parameter
But this command works for other media servers with their own disk pool
Solved! Go to Solution.
Stupid question, have you extended the file system/volume after expanding the SAN lun ?
Yes, that is definately done.. The OS is able to see the increased partition space.
If any log files or command outputs are required, please let me know.
The MSDP pools are full now due to which the backups are failing, even though we have added 11 TB's of space, NBU is not able to see it.
Then it should be a question of closing down netbackup on the server with bpdown -f -v, make sure all netbackup processes has stopped with bpps and then start netbackup with bpup -f -v
If you still have problems, a reboot might do the trick
