Hi,

 

I do not have logs in "bin" directory but i do have a "logs" at /VERITAS/Netbackup but it does not have nbdb in it.

Sorry! a typo mistake Its /Veritas/NetBackup Only- Create a folder named nddb, It will automatically store the Logs if any errors occured !

Hi,

 

I've created the nbdb and how can i generate logs into it? Till now there's no logs in it.

Can u able RUN Catalog Backup manually ??

 

If you can run the Catalog Backup once and do a test Backup, after completion of test backup NetBackup will try to Run Catalog Backup automatically and it will fill the events in the nddb folder.

 

Before that check ur catalog Configuration- whether its configured in schedules tab with - after each session of scheduled,user or user or manual backup

Hi,

 

I've created the nbdb folder both in /VERITAS/Netbackup/ and /VERITAS/Netbackup/logs/ but it didnt generate and log when i triggered a job. The offline catalog didnt kick in at all even though i have changed the setting to "After each session of scheduled, user, or manual backups". I triggered an offline backup manually and it also didnt have any output in nbdb folder.

Change the Option to After each session of scheduled backup and do an automatic backup, check whether this is working ?

Hi,

 

The automated backup option also did not trigger the offline backup. I ran a script which i used before and I saw this error message from the GUI. However, i did check that both Tape001 & Tape002 are in the slots.

 

12/4/2008 5:01:05 PM - begin Catalog Backup
12/4/2008 5:02:00 PM - Error bpbackupdb(pid=4848) open() of \\.\Tape1 failed, No media in drive.    
12/4/2008 5:02:00 PM - Error bpbackupdb(pid=4848) open() of \\.\Tape1 failed, The system cannot find the file specified. 
12/4/2008 5:02:50 PM - end Catalog Backup; elapsed time: 00:01:45
media open error(83)
12/4/2008 5:02:50 PM - Error bpbackupdb(pid=4848) Offline catalog backup to path \\.\Tape1 FAILED

Yes, Now Check the bpbackupdb folder logs(C:\programfiles\Veritas\NetBackup\logs)- who should find something !!!!

 

If you dont find the Folder under Logs, then create a folder named bpbackupdb and re-run ur same script !

Hi,

 

let me know in which version of netbackup you are in; if it is 6.5; i wouldn't recommend you still following cold catalog backup. go ahead and disable cold catalog backup and enable hot catlog backup.

 

if you are still in 5.1 mpx; let me know history of your case. after what changes your catlog backup stopped working.

 

regards,

Srikanth.
