Hi,

I am unable to take manual backups with nbac user(user added to NBU_Operator group), even though he has permissions to do manual backups.But it is working fine with "root".

Re: manual backups not working with nbac user(NBU_Operator group user) after configuration nbac

Hello,

please review/attach also /var/tmp/one.txt log file.

When running bpbackup from command line, also execute permissions on the file is required.

Regards

Michal

 

Re: manual backups not working with nbac user(NBU_Operator group user) after configuration nbac

Looks operator does have permission to Backup...

Check the admin and bprd logs what is it saying...

you might then have to look at nbatd and nbaz log

 

Did you run bpnbaz -SetupClient on that system ?

bpnbaz -SetupClient [client.server.com] [-out file] | -all [-images] [-out file] | [-fileprogress_file] [-dryrun] [-disable]

Re: manual backups not working with nbac user(NBU_Operator group user) after configuration nbac

Hi Michal,

1)This was log of /var/tmp/one.txt

bash-3.2# more one.txt
Backup started 06/13/2016 07:16:17

Progress logs may exist on individual clients

bash-3.2#

Hi nbutech,

Is bpnbaz -SetupClient really required? I have set my USE_VXSS parameter on master server to AUTOMATIC not to REQUIRED.

Re: manual backups not working with nbac user(NBU_Operator group user) after configuration nbac

Hello,

ok what I wanna to say is that running NBU commands/utilities from the command line requires also permissions on OS level - so execute permissions on NetBackup scripts/commands, write permissions to log directories etc. And these are not controlled by NBAC and without root they can be missing.

So either 1/ fine tune these permissions or 2/run all NBU actions from the NBU console

Hi , Michal,

 

Unfortunately, manual backups are not working from netbackup console either
