bmrprep headache

Level 6

Ive got a DR environment which dups my 'real' one. Ive got netbmaster 701 on solaris and it uses bmr.

Ive got a windows bmr boot server (a VM, a clone of my real bootserver vm)  running , also ver 701.

I can query via bmrs -o query....and -o list to get currentversion fro mboth . All good.All same.701


I can query my bmr packages , configs , srts. All good.


But when I try do a bmrprep for a windows BMR, it just sits there...I get a scrap of info: [Critical] No NIC.

No other clues. bmrprep never completes.

So any clue as to WTF (scuse the language)  is going on cos the msgs are way too sparse. I'm suspecting lack of dhcp , cos everything else looks good.

The log traces look pretty strange. It is not able to find any WindowsDevice as part of the config.

Can you please attach the output of the below commands.

<install_path>\netbackup\bin\bmrs -o list -r Config

 <install_path>\netbackup\bin\bmrs -o querytree -r database -table config -id <id> -gui > c:/bmr.xml

which I think will answer your other qs Suchitra

Level 6

The cmd:


bmrs -o query -r database -table PnpInfo

hangs.I'd expect it to be slow but return something.


bmrs -o list -r config works fine, loads of configs from my numerous clients.


picking an id , i get an xml file:its huge but it works fine. (well it works...)


Level 6

Rebooted the bmr server and PnpInfo query works now, but bmrprep still doesnt.

Oddly the timestamp of bmrprep msgs in vxlogview are about an hour 'slow'.?!?!
