Strange backup job policy starting with __

Hi VOX,

 I recently did a test upgrade of Netbackup Master Server from 7.7.1 to 8.1.

I see in Activity Monitor some jobs are in failed status from job policy starting with __DSSU_POLICY_tape-med00x-dsu, We don't have a backup policy of this type.

Any idea from where this job policy is getting triggered.

We donot see the policy listed in bppllist as well.

I have tried disabling all of the above policy, We are still seeing jobs been run with this job policy __DSSU_POLICY_tape-med00x-dsu

Let us know if any one has faced similar issue.

Re: Strange backup job policy starting with __

That job is coming from a disk storage unit trying to duplicate images to tape. Disk staging storage unit i.e DSSU. Check the properties of your disk storage units and you’ll probably find one or more that have a schedule with an associate tape storage unit.

It might have been reactivated by/after the upgrade.
