Since this morning, one of our vmware policy wont start. I can try to start all the schedule but nothing in the activity monitor. After research on the vox community, i found that the policy appears in the failure_history log and in the nbpem log. But i'm not able to decrypt these files correctly.
I've looked windows services and nbpem is disabled. Maybe it's normal or maybe not.
For your information, the platfrom work on netbackup 8.0 with a vm master and physical MSDP.
Thanks a lot for your future help.
NBPEM is the policy execution manager. If that service is disabled on a master server, no backups will run. On a media server NBPEM is disabled.
Thanks for your answers.
I've bad eyes because i didn't look the good server for the daemons. NBPEM is started on my master server.
I did a copy of the policy and the new policy starts well.
So i checked the All Log Entries and i found this :
One error 200 which indicates that scheduler found no backups due to run. After that i received this error : Could not get last backup data for policy.
See: Status 200 details
Another way to check is to open the VMware Intelligent policy, and click on the "Clients" tab. On that tab, on the bottom right there is a button to "Test query". Click that and wait while NetBackup talks to the vCenter to get a list of VMs to backup. If the list says no VMs are included, you need to check your query. If there are VMs included, then you need to check your schedules for any overlap. And as the documentation above says, check the Activity monitor to verify when the policy last ran.
