Start by checking whether the NetBackup Deduplication Engine and Deduplication manager services are running on the media server..

Also check if any errors are reported in the windows event viewer logs

Please tell us what you were trying to do in the 'Change Storage Server' screen when the error appeared.

Re: Storage server error

Hi Marianne!

Thank you for your help.

I was trying to check the properties of the storage server.

The problem is that the storage server stays down and does not stay UP.

View the status of the storage server:

Re: Storage server error

few things to validate:

are spoold, spad process running there?

ie.

bpps -x|grep d$
root 13963 1 0 Oct17 ? 00:01:14 /usr/openv/pdde/pdcr/bin/spad
root 14203 1 21 Oct17 ? 11:26:13 /usr/openv/pdde/pdcr/bin/spoold

do you have all file systems mounted ?

df -hP

especially these found from below command

nbdevquery -listconfig -stype PureDisk -storage_server `hostname`|grep path

V7.5 "storagepath" "/msdp/data/dp1/pdvol" string
V7.5 "spalogpath" "/msdp/data/dp1/pdvol/log" string
V7.5 "dbpath" "/msdp/cat" string

Are these mounted??

Re: Storage server error

Hmm

this is interesting ... 

I trust that the details you are willing to see are gathered from this command

nbdevconfig -getconfig -stype PureDisk -storage_server `hostname`

and looks like this is working on your end... can you please run it?

I would started looking into msdp related logs... https://www.veritas.com/content/support/en_US/search-results.html?q=msdp%20logging

Re: Storage server error

Hi Quebek!

The output of the command follows.

[root@srv70099 admincmd]# ./nbdevconfig -getconfig -stype PureDisk -storage_server srv70100
RDSM has encountered an issue with STS where the server was not found: getStorageServerConfig
failed to get storage server configuration information, invalid command parameter
[root@srv70099 admincmd]# ^C
[root@srv70099 admincmd]#

Best Regards

Re: Storage server error

So how come you managed to get output from the same command earlier when I did ask for it few days ago?

Create all logs required to troubleshoot MSDP and retry and most likely open case with VRTS support if not already done.
