nbreplicate : fragments exist on media which does not support replication

We have AIR between two domains M1 and M2 using Data Domain OST. Replication is from M1 =to=> M2, I want to replicate image from backup to M1 from M2 in case the image is lost/expired in M1.

I tried nbreplicate but the job fails with error 228. 

nbreplicate -backupid Client1_1517474091 -cn 1 -rcn 102 -slp_name REV_AIR_slp -target_user user1 -target_pwd ###### -v

NF - Suspend window close behavior is not supported for nbreplicate
INF - window close behavior: Continue processing the current image
INF - dsmlib_common.cpp:166 EMM server set to M2
INF - dsmlib_common.cpp:189 Master server set to M2
INF - dsmlib_common.cpp:271 Connecting to DiskServiceMgr on M2
INF - dsmlib_common.cpp:59 Using dsmlib private orb
INF - dsmlib_common.cpp:279 Connecting to NBDSMFSM using orb 100687a50
INF - dsmlib_common.cpp:345 Registerd Framework OBV factories with orb 100687a50
INF - dsmlib_common.cpp:353 Registerd DiskServiceMgr OBV factories with orb 100687a50
Skipping backup id Client1_1517474091, fragments exist on media which does not support replication.

Can someone help with this. Thanks.

Re: nbreplicate : fragments exist on media which does not support replication

nbreplicate command is not supported with 3rd party ost devices.. It is only supported with MSDP and PDDO..

You can still get it done in 2 phases but its just that you would receive support from Veritas for troubleshooting any failures with the manual run of nbreplicate with 3rd party OST..

The last few lines clearly has this statement that it is not supported

Now coming back to the error that you see..
1st check if bpimagelist reports the fragments of the primary copy in DD stu or some other STU..

Next check and verify if the replication source flag is set on the disk pool.. Ideally if this was just the destination for replication and you had not configured associations it would not have the replication source flag set on it..

Thanks for the reply... Yes, nbreplicate does not support third-party storage devices. 

But what would be the solution to bring back the backup images to the primary domain using data domain?
