Hi

Master server - solaris

Media server - AIX 

 

To fix  Missing drive path on Master server

I run

 

bp.kill_all--shutdown netbackup

 

1. Remove the drives from NBU config (tpconfig -delete -drive <drive index>

                                       (tpconfig -l   ---> for drive index)

2. Remove the /dev/rmt/ files 

                                        ($rm /dev/rmt/#cbn)

3. Run devfsadm -C -c tape

 

cd /usr/openv/volmgr/bin/driver
sg.build all -ml 9 (where 9 is the highest lun)
 
rm /kernel/drv/sg.conf 
/usr/openv/volmgr/bin/driver/sg.install
 
devfsadm -C -c tape
 
sgscan
 
bp.start_all

There is no sg driver in aix. You may need the ovpass driver but this is dependant on if you are not using ibm drives are at nbu 7.x
