I have a newly installed Virtual master server but the Catalog database is installed on C: drive and I want to move it to E: drive now. When I try the command from the installlation path ''C:\Program Files\VERITAS\NetBackup\bin>nbdb_move -data E:'' it is failing with 'Move of database files failed'
Solved! Go to Solution.
Try to run it from command prompt with elevated privileges - use "Run As Administrator"
And yes, you need to provide the full path to destination folder as the argument. Create a folder under E:\ structure first
I have restrarted the NB services and ran the command and it worked fine.After this I started a Catalog backup but it is still backing up the previous db file which is in my C: drive. Do I need to make any other changes?
How exactly do you know its backing up the files in C? Are you sure its not just staging to C? Did you update the staging location too when moving the databases?
nbdb_admin [-vxdbms_nb_staging directory]
I have already installed everything and the server is about to be live.So it is difficult for me to do all the configurations again.Is it the only resolution for moving the dbs?
Still my catalog backups are running to the C: drive.
To C-drive or from C?
As we've tried to explain - moving EMM db will not move any of the catalogs under Netbackup\db.
How much 'config' has been done already?
Reinstall, device and media config will take less than an hour.
Policies (class folder under Netbackup\db) can be copied out before you remove and reinstall software.
If you did this 2 days ago when I suggested this, all would've been fine by now....
