Vault - Duplication job is skipping some images

Level 4


In my environment, Vault profiles are configured for Duplicating the backup images from my disk to tape.,

Everyday VAULT profile is configured to run using the respective Vault Type Backup policy.,

Everyday my vault job is getting failed with "306" error code and the respective Duplication jobs are getting partially successful with the below output.,

03/24/2015 22:59:03 - Error bpduplicate (pid=25238) Status = successfully duplicated 323 of 348 images.
03/24/2015 22:59:03 - Error bpduplicate (pid=25238) Status = the requested operation was partially successful.
03/24/2015 22:59:03 - end Duplicate; elapsed time 2:52:16
the requested operation was partially successful  (1)

When i search in the vault session logs., i can see the file named as "failed.images" file.,

16:00:18 INF - Duplicating policy xxxxxxxxxxxxxx schedule Full backup id xxxxxxxx copy 1 created on 03/13/2015 21:00:06 on source

16:01:24 INF - host xxxxxxxxxx backupid xxxxxxxxxx write failed, media manager killed by signal (82).
16:01:24 INF - Duplicate of backupid xxxxxxxxxx failed, media manager killed by signal (82).

Am getting the above error in the vault session logs output., But when i manually duplicate the image its getting successful.,

Can you please advise us on why some of the backup images are getting skipped on day to day basis.,??Also we are different backup images skipping on day to day basis.,

how much time does your dupication jobs running?

does the read and write media servers are some or different?

could you post the entire detail status of the duplication job that is skipping the images?

did you see the size of the images that are skippping.. may be they are in large size?

Ensure all of these log folders exist on the disk media server :

bpbrm, bptm, bpdm

The logs will hopefully tell us what is killing 'media manager '.

Please copy logs to .txt file. (e.g. bptm.txt) and upload as File attachments .
