Hi 

My VM backup for a particular client failing with SC 6/23 through SAN.

Master server : win2008, Nbu 7.6.0.2 and vm backup host is Appliance 5230.

The same VM getting backed up via nbd but failing on san.

The other vms located on the same datastore getting backed up successfully with same backup host

Chcked the bpfis loga but could not find any clue.

Below the error

Hi Ajith

Check VxMS logs.

Check if this log is enabled on Appliance - /usr/openv/netbackup/logs/vxms.
