bpcoverage status 58

After running this command (bpcoverage -c bactest), I am getting 58 status code. 

Here can able to telnet from master to client (13782 and 13724) but not able to telnet from client to master.

Are we need open the ports manually on client side ?

CLIENT: backrest
Exit status 58: can't connect to client


CLIENT: bactest
Exit status 58: can't connect to client

Re: bpcoverage will do this for

Hello,

 

The application registers the port on OS for communication.  Open port it mean you have to change the OS firewall or Network firewall rule to send and receive the request on those ports.

If you are using Network firewall then ask respected person or team to open the port in the firewall.

Re: bpcoverage status 58

Port 1556 neeed to be open in both directions, meaning both side need to be able to initiate sessions.

Port 13782 & 13724 will still work, but are not the default port any more, unless you are using a very old version of Netbackup.

bptestbpcd is a good utility for testing connectivity from master and media servers

PLEASE add 1556 as well.

Actually, you can drop the other two and only use 1556.

As per @Nicolai's post - 
Port 13782 & 13724 will still work, but are not the default ports any more.
As from 7.0.1, the default is 1556.
When that fails, 13742 will be tried.
When that fails, 13782 will be tried.

Requested the Unix platform team to open the telnetport 13782 and 13724 on the client.

After opened the port, the issue is fixed.

I can telnet from master to client and vise versa.

Re: bpcoverage status 58

Thanks for the information, 

Sure, I will use 1556 port instead of 13724 & 13782.
