I use the netbackup 8.1 for backup the data file of the client server on the local VTL ( DataDomain ) with NDMP protocol
File restore is stuck forever:
09:11:28 14/12/2022 - begin Restore
09:11:29 14/12/2022 - number of images required: 1
09:11:29 14/12/2022 - media needed: 0120L5
Thanks in advance!
I'm able to list the media in the robot ( VT library by DataDomain ) successfully
Moved to free slot:
m s120 s544
Initiating MOVE_MEDIUM from address 1144 to 1568
A new restore job has started, same state of waiting for media mount.
from the DD side, check if tape is mounted in a tape drive
and if it is mounted check the netbackup device monitor for the same.
If the answer is yes for both, maybe there is a tape misconfiguration in netbackup.
If the tape is not mounted check the device monitor for pending request.
another think you must check is if the tape or the drive is "in use"
When the restore is started, nothing happens: from the DD side tape is not mounted, I can move it to empty drive by robtest command and then I can see it assigned in DD. From the NB, no "action" in Device Monitor, and job stuck in :
media needed: 0120L
