can't restore file on HP-UX 11.23

 

I use NetBakcup Master Server (DataCenter) 6.5.6 on Windows 2003 R2 Standard Edition x86.

Media Server 6.5.6 on DB1 and backupdb (both: HP-UX 11.23)

DB1 and backupdb use HP Service Guard for Oracle to make oracle cluster together.

 

I config local host file on Windows to solve name on HP-UX and it can ping between (windows  <--> HP-UX) successfully.

 

I configure policy to backup files on HP-UX on DB1, it can backup successfully.

I Configure policy to backup files on HP-UX on backupdb, it can backup successfully.

 

When I try to restore files on HP-UX on DB1, it can't restore

I get log from restore

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

I try to restore on backupdb, it can restore successfully.

I try to use IP address to restore instead name on DB1, it can restore successfully.

 

From restore log, I doubt windows can't solve name DB1, but it can backup by use DB1.

 

From Host Properties > Client, I can connected on DB1.

 

Please help.

The problem does not seem to

The problem does not seem to be with connectivity but with the path that you're trying to restore:

WRN - can't create directory: \\?\testbackup: (WIN32 2: Unknown error)

This looks like it's trying to create a Windows path, even resulting in a "Win32" error.

Please ensure that you have bprd log directory on the master (if not, please create it and restart NBU then retry the restore).

Please post the log as an attachment.

Also ensure that you have the following log directories:

On media server: bptm and bpbrm

On client: bpcd and tar

I'm pretty confident that bprd log will help to find the problem, but ensure you have all the other logs in case we need more logs.

I have a suspision that the Master is trying to restore the files to itself.

Look for entries like this in bprd:

... <2> restorefiles:    browse_client =
... <2> restorefiles:    requesting_client =
... <2> restorefiles:    destination_client =
... <2> restorefiles:    requesting_client_hostname =
... <2> restorefiles:    destination_client_hostname =

 

If you see that "requesting_client" is the master server name but "requesting_client_hostname" is that of the client, it means that the master's 'Configured' client name was changed to that of the client. That is a sure way of doing a redirected restore to the master.
