Re: Status code 6 and 199 (HELP NEEDED !!)

Please refer to the netbackup documentation and other forums posts. This error is not unique and there are at least two references to it on vox (if you use the search bar above)

What does the backup policy look like?
Is this a traditional script-based backup?
How many schedules in the policy?
What are the backup windows in the schedules?

Re: Status code 6 and 199 (HELP NEEDED !!)

Hi

Please find the details;

What does the backup policy look like?- SAP (snapshot backup)
Is this a traditional script-based backup?- Yes
How many schedules in the policy? 10
What are the backup windows in the schedules? 22:00 - 08:00

Re: Status code 6 and 199 (HELP NEEDED !!)

You need to team up with your SAP DBA, as you need to see the output from SAP's brbackup command.

For self study, this is a good place to start:

Re: Status code 6 and 199 (HELP NEEDED !!)

Is there an open schedule at the time the backup is running? Check which schedule is being used in the activity monitor and see if that schedule is open.

Re: Status code 6 and 199 (HELP NEEDED !!)

To solve the "Operation not allowed during this time period", please ensure application backup schedules are "open" 24/7.

How is the script at the SAP host strated ?

Re: Status code 6 and 199 (HELP NEEDED !!)

Is the SAP server in the same timezone as the NBU environment? You will need to work with your DBA to check the script, as the below error messages are contradictory:

Sep 29, 2020 2:47:20 AM - Error bpbrm (pid=13566378) from client dbRP1: ERR - Script exited with status = 5 <the restore failed to recover the requested files>

Sep 29, 2020 2:47:23 AM - Info bphdb (pid=0) done. status: 6: the backup failed to back up the requested files

NetBackup is queueing up a backup job, but the logs indicate a failed restore. You need to review the bphdb logs from the client, and the bpbrm logs on the media server to have more insight to what's going on.

Also curious that you say it's an Oracle database, but the logs show SAP policy. Why not use the SAP policy type for a SAP database? Can you please provide the output of bppllist -policy DBRP1_SAP_ONLINE_SMB_FULL_BACKUP_1 -U?

Re: Status code 6 and 199 (HELP NEEDED !!)

Hi,

Thank you the responses.
But in my case backup will fail status code 199 on Tuesday Schedule (most of the time).

@ RiaanBadenhorst & Nicolai: application backup schedules is "open" from 22:00 to 08:00.

Re: Status code 6 and 199 (HELP NEEDED !!)

@114 

Why are you trying to micro-manage to this level?

I can see that you have a different pool for each day of the week, and therefore schedules for each day of the week, but why do you feel that this is necessary?
If a backup is started after midnight on a Tuesday, should it use the Monday pool (when the backup window opened) or the Tuesday pool?
Does it really matter if all backups with the same retention go to the same pool?

Things get confusing when you try to micro-manage.

How do the SAP backup scrips know which schedules to use?
Is it hard-coded?

The backup failure that you showed us ran early hours (12:49) on Tuesday morning 29 Sept.
However, the Tuesday schedules only have open backup window from Tuesday 22:00:00 --> Wednesday 08:00:00

On Tuesday morning, only Monday schedules have open window:
Monday 22:00:00 --> Tuesday 08:00:00

So, if the backup runs early hours on a Tuesday morning and need to use the Tuesday schedule, then the status 199 makes perfect sense. The backup window is closed.

Re: Status code 6 and 199 (HELP NEEDED !!)

@Marianne hits the nail on the head, as usual!

I think the primary culprit is that you're using Calendar-based schedules. Even though your backup window spans from 2200-0800, the schedule is specified to only run on Mondays. Since the backup kicked off at 12:59, it was Tuesday morning and outside of the policies specified days to run.

You most likely run full backups throughout the weekend, and have some slow or long-running jobs that are using resources. When Monday starts, not all of those jobs are finished, and you have to wait for them to conclude. This means when your primary backup window starts (most likely off-hours after 5-6 PM), there aren't as many resources available as there are later in the week. Your Monday policy doesn't kick off right at 2200, and has to wait for its turn to start. Since it starts a few hours into its backup window, you've now entered Tuesday, and the schedule is only allowed to run on Mondays, and now you have a status 199.
