About new feature and enhancements for NetBackup


6.5.6
The following sections describe the NetBackup feature and enhancements that
comprise this release.
For more detailed information about these features, see the NetBackup Document
Updates book. You can use the following Technote to locate this book on the
Symantec Support Web site.
http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/348223

For this release, updates were made to the NetBackup Troubleshooting Guide and
the Troubleshooting Wizard. A new set of status code descriptions has been added
to the guide. In addition, a set of more granular and descriptive status codes
(2000-2104) were included to disambiguate the status code 800 job status. That
enables administrators to more easily troubleshoot allocation problems.
You can find the latest version of the NetBackup Troubleshooting Guide in the
following Technote on the Symantec Support Web site.
http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/348472

Decommissioning a media server


New with this release is a command to decommission a media
server,nbdecommission. The command launches a text-based wizard that guides
you through the decommission process. The wizard removes the references to a
media server from a NetBackup domain.
See the following Technote on the Symantec Support Web site for more
information about this feature:
http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/348223

About the VSP disable tool


NetBackup 6.5.6 automatically installs the Veritas volume snapshot Provider
(VSP) method for Open File Backups. VSP is the default Open File Backup method
in this release.
NetBackup 6.5.6 includes the VSP disable tool (bpvspdisable.exe) for
administrators to use to disable VSP on clients if it is not needed. The tool deletes
the VSP cache files from the disk of the client system. All future VSP requests on
those clients are redirected to use Microsoft native Volume Shadow Copy Service
(VSS).
About NetBackup 6.5.6 13
About new feature and enhancements for NetBackup 6.5.6

The VSP method for Open File Backups is not supported in NetBackup 7.0. Having
run the VSP disable tool does not affect upgrading to NetBackup 7.0.
The VSP disable tool can be used on the following operating systems:
■ Windows Server 2000
■ Windows Server 2003 with Service Pack 2 (x86 and IA64)
■ Windows XP 32-bit and 64-bit (x86 and IA64)
See the following Technote on the Symantec Support Web site for more
information about this feature:
http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/348223

About the catalog recovery synchronization tool


The nbcatsync command runs a utility that resyncs the disk media IDs in the
image catalog after catalog recovery operations complete.
After bprecover restores the actual catalog files, the nbcatsync utility can do the
following:
■ Fix the disk media IDs in the fragment records.
■ Mark all recovered images as SS_COMPLETED.
■ Restore disabled functionality.
■ Prune images from the catalog which were not found on any currently
configured disk volumes. The -prune_catalog option deletes catalog entries
for the images that do not exist locally.
■ Constrain the operation to a set of images based on the catalog restore that
was performed.
See the following Technote on the Symantec Support Web site for more
information about this feature:
http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/348223

About name resolution and firewall configuration upgrades


The bptestnetconn command has been added to more effectively troubleshoot
networking errors such as status code 58 errors, Cannot connect to client. This
command performs several tasks that help you analyze DNS connectivity problems
with any specified list of hosts, including the server list in the NetBackup
configuration. To help troubleshoot connectivity problems between the services
that use CORBA communications, bptestnetconn can perform and report on
14 About NetBackup 6.5.6
About new feature and enhancements for NetBackup 6.5.6

CORBA connections to named services. It sends VxUL log messages to OID 112
for easy perusal. The vxlogcfg command controls the log verbosity.

About status 800 job status enhancements


In NetBackup 6.5.x, jobs that fail at resource allocation time are often assigned a
status 800 (RESOURCE UNAVAILABLE) job status. There are many underlying reasons
that cause allocations for these jobs to fail. A set of more granular and descriptive
status codes (2000-2104) were included to disambiguate the status code 800 job
status. These new error code descriptions enable the NetBackup administrator to
troubleshoot allocation problems more easily.

About NetBackup command line interface updates


This release contains updates to the following commands that you can run using
the command line interface:
■ bptestnetconn

■ bpimage

■ bplist

■ bprecover

■ bprestore

■ nbcatsync

■ NBCC

■ NBCCR

■ nbdecommission

■ nbdna

■ nbemmcmd

■ nbsu

About the new multistream_restore parameter


The multistream_restore parameter is new with NetBackup 6.5.6. This parameter
is supported for Oracle without RMAN.

About NetBackup support utilities


NetBackup 6.5.6 includes three support utilities: nbsu, NBCC, and NBCCR. The
following list summarizes the enhancements that have been made to each utility
in this release:
■ NetBackup Support Utility (NBSU)
The NBSU utility assists you in gathering NetBackup and operating system
diagnostic information. This tool queries the host on which it runs and gathers
diagnostic information about NetBackup and the operating system. In addition,
it provides a wide range of control over the types of diagnostic information
gathered. For instance, you can obtain information about NetBackup
configuration settings about troubleshooting areas, or about NetBackup or
media management job status codes.
In NetBackup 6.5.6 this utility has been enhanced to version 1.3 and includes
the following new features:
■ New commands line options have been added.
■ Enhancements were made to the SLP, EMM, and versioninfo diagnostics.
■ This utility is now available for the Mac OS X platform.
In addition to the new enhancements, the support and support.exe diagnostic
information gathering utilities are no longer included or supported beginning
with this release of NetBackup.
■ NBCC utility
The NBCC utility uses the output from various OS and NetBackup commands
to analyze the consistency state of the NetBackup configuration. It also analyzes
the consistency state of NetBackup databases and catalogs as they relate to
tape media. If inconsistencies are detected, NBCC consolidates, and packages
the resulting data into a bundle that can be sent to Symantec Tech Support
for analysis.
This release contains the 7.0 version of this utility. In addition, enhancements
have been made to this utility to ensure that it supports NetBackup 6.5.6.
■ NBCCR utility
The NBCCR utility processes database and catalog repair actions as defined in
a file that you can generate under the guidance of Symantec Technical Support.
This file is created as part of the analysis of the data that the NBCC utility
collects and any site-specific situations.
This release contains the 7.0 version of this utility. In addition, enhancements
have been made to this utility to ensure that it supports NetBackup 6.5.6.

About platform-specific issues


■ For SLES 11 support, make sure that you install PBX from the following image
before installing NetBackup:
NB_65_ICS_1.4.41.5_LinuxX86.zip
18 About known issues
Installation, upgrade, and cluster issues

■ NetBackup can fail on systems running AIX and older versions of the C++
run-time libraries. IBM has released xlC rte 9.0.0.3, a C++ Runtime
Environment Component for AIX. Symantec recommends that you download
and install the latest C++ run-time library and then reboot your server. For
more information about this issue and fix, refer to the following Technote on
the Symantec Support Web site.
http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/292450

■ (ET1534457) If RHEL5.3 Media (CDs) are used for shared resource tree (SRT)
creation, the SRT creation fails with an error message that is similar to the
following:

V-125-380 /var/tmp/bmrmediaDb1K6p/.discinfo(2): expected "Red Hat


Enterprise Linux Server 5", got "Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server 5.3" The
loaded media is not correct...please try again. Unmounting media...ok.

One workaround for this issue is to use the RHEL5.0, 5.1, or 5.2 operating
system media to create a shared resource tree (SRT). You can use SRTs to
restore an RHEL5.3 client. A second workaround for this issue: On the BMR
Boot server, open the /usr/openv/var/global/createsrt.conf file and search
for the string, Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server 5. Replace all the occurrences
of this string with the following string, Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server 5.3.
That should enable the creation of RHEL5.3 SRTs.
NOTE: This workaround disables the ability to create RHEL5.0/5.1/5.2 SRTs.
Because RHEL5.3 introduces the new device drivers that were not a part of the
default kernel in RHEL5.2, Symantec recommends that you use this workaround
to create a RHEL5.3 SRT for restoring RHEL5.3 clients.

Installation, upgrade, and cluster issues


■ (ET1890392) The NetBackup 6.5.5 install may hang if the following is true:
■ The $PATH variable is set to use the cp command from GNU coreutils version
7.1.
■ You have downloaded the release updates to a Solaris global files system
You should use the cp command that is a part of the base operating system,
or install the release updates from a local file system.
■ Removing NetBackup versions 6.5.6 and later
When you remove NetBackup from Windows 2008/Vista and later systems, a
dialog box appears. This dialog informs you that PBX is still running and that
it needs to be stopped. When the dialog box appears, Symantec recommends
that you click, Do not close applications. (A reboot will be required.) and
About known issues 19
Installation, upgrade, and cluster issues

continue with the NetBackup removal. PBX is stopped and restarted


automatically as needed for removal. Any other installed programs that rely
on PBX are not affected.
■ (ET1967792) If you use the BMR boot server, and you enabled the BMR boot
server option at a time after you have installed the NetBackup current patch,
you may need to install this patch using the following command-line operation.
That updates the BMR boot server files to the current release level. If you do
not install the patch using the appropriate command, the BMR boot server
files may not be patched successfully.
Open a Command window and run the appropriate command:
■ For an x86 system, use the following command operation:
msiexec /l*v c:\install.txt /i "NetBackup Update.msi" /qn
ADDLOCAL=BMR_RU_x86
Where c:\install.txt is the pathname of the installation log.
■ For an x64 system, use the following command operation:
msiexec /l*v c:\install.txt /i "NetBackup Update.msi" /qn
ADDLOCAL=BMR_RU_AMD64
Where c:\install.txt is the pathname of the installation log.

■ (ET1991719) A Windows computer would not come up after a disaster recovery


restore was performed after an ALL_LOCAL_DRIVES backup.
If you encounter an error that is related to the lsass.exe executable, you
should perform another restore first. Next, you should shut down the
NetBackup client service from the services windows and then reboot the system.
■ (ET1595854) When you uninstall NetBackup from a VCS cluster, the VCS Type
is not deleted. If you reinstall NetBackup to the same location, you are not able
to run NetBackup.)
To avoid this problem, use the following procedure to uninstall NetBackup
from a VCS cluster.
Note: The first step applies only to UNIX systems. The remaining steps apply
to UNIX and Windows systems.
■ If it exists, on UNIX systems, remove the following file from the active
node:
/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/cluster/frozen

■ Enter the following command to take the NetBackup resource offline:


hares -offline <resource name> -sys active node

■ After ensuring that all NetBackup processes and services are down, delete
all NetBackup data from the shared disk.
20 About known issues
Installation, upgrade, and cluster issues

■ Enter the following command to take the NetBackup group offline:


hagrp -offline <group name> -sys active node

■ Enter the following command to change the VCS configuration to R/W


mode:
haconf -makerw

■ Enter the following command to delete the NetBackup group:


hagrp -delete group name

■ Enter the following command to delete the NetBackup resource type:


hatype -delete NetBackup

■ Enter the following command to change the VCS configuration back to R/O
mode:
haconf -dump -makero

■ Uninstall NetBackup from all other nodes in the cluster.

■ (ET2003460) Support for FlashBackup in a Microsoft Cluster (MSCS)


environment
Beginning in NetBackup 6.5 GA, the use of FlashBackup in a Microsoft Cluster
(MSCS) environment is supported, with the following limitation: Raw partition
restores can only be performed when the disk being restored is placed in
extended maintenance mode or removed from the MSCS resource group.

Note: Earlier versions of MSCS (such as those versions that were shipped with
Windows versions before Windows 2003 SP1) do not allow extended
maintenance mode functionality. If the cluster does not support placing disks
in extended maintenance mode, it is still possible to perform raw restores to
an alternate, non-shared disk.

■ The Veritas Private Branch Exchange (PBX) software is installed along with
NetBackup 6.5.x. Depending on how NetBackup is installed, PBX may log
messages by default to the UNIX system logs /var/adm/messages or
/var/adm/syslog, or to the Windows event log. That can cause additional
system logging. The messages that are written to the system logs are the same
as those written to the PBX logs (/opt/VRTSpbx/log on UNIX and
install_path\VxPBX\log on Windows).
To disable PBX logging to the system or the event logs after NetBackup has
been installed, enter the following commands:
UNIX:
cd /opt/VRTSicsco/bin
./vxlogcfg -a -p 50936 -o 103 -s LogToOslog=false
About known issues 21
Installation, upgrade, and cluster issues

Windows:
cd install_path\VERITAS\VRTSicsco
vxlogcfg -a -p 50936 -o 103 -s LogToOslog=false
It should not be necessary to restart PBX for this setting to take effect. Any
future PBX log information should no longer appear in the system logs.
For more information about this issue or information on how to disable the
option, refer to the following Technote on the Symantec Support Web site.
http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/280746

■ During a Windows server or client installation, if there you encounter a fatal


install error, you should check the installation logs to determine the cause of
the error. If you find a return value of three in the install log similar to the
following example, then you should first open a cmd window. From the
command window, run the following command, and install NetBackup again.
regsvr32 oleaut32.dll
The following is a sample message from the install logs.

setRegistryValues.B2D5B6C9_4698_42F7_AC9D_955789A69556.
04-07-2008,14:32:36 : Action start 14:32:36:

setRegistryValues.B2D5B6C9_4698_42F7_AC9D_955789A69556. Return value 3.

■ (ET1917617) The database creation failed on an HP 11.31 IA64 system.


For HP virtual machine (VM) system, the base_pagesize kernel parameter
should be set to a value that is less than 64. The possible values are 4 ,8, 16,
and 64. If you encounter this issue, set this parameter to one of the documented
values and try to install NetBackup again.
■ (ET1988453) The client package may fail to extract to the root drive on
Windows 2008 R2 Server Core systems.
The Windows 2008 R2 Server Core operating system has a security issue with
creating directories on the root drive.
See the following article for more information about the issue:

http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/gametechnologiesxna/thread/
ba610c21-a823-4e46-b937-af620f981e22

Because of this issue, the NetBackup client package may not extract on to the
root directory. If you encounter this issue, create another directory on the root

fail if the Index location is configured on the Enterprise Vault server within
the Enterprise Vault environment and there is no enterprise vault install
folder/Reports folder present on the system. If you attempt to back up the
Index location, the backup fails because the enterprise vault install
folder/Reports folder is not present on the host. If this folder is not on the

upgrade the SharePoint clients to 6.5.3.
■ (ET1595100) NetBackup can back up and restore a portal if the IP address is
used instead of the name when it is created. However, using a portal name
instead results in a site-not-being-found condition. That means you have to
perform some steps manually to complete the restore. The databases do get
restored to SQL. Use the SharePoint Central Administrator to Recover a
Portal, the IP for the URL address, and also enter the names of the databases
(SITE, SERV, and PROF) that are restored. After the portal is recreated, use the
SharePoint Central Administrator Manage Content databases for the virtual
server to add any Team Sites that are associated to the Portal Site. These sites
also get backed up and then restored to SQL.
The steps to recover the named URL portal after a restore.
1. Verify that the content databases are restore to SQL.
2. Use SharePoint Central Administrator - List and Manage Portal Sites Restore
a Portal.
3. Select the virtual server and place the names of the SITE, PROF, and SERV
databases in their respective fields.
4. Use the portal IP address for the portal URL site address.
5. If there are additional team sites associated to the portal, use SharePoint
Administrator Virtual Server Manager to Manage Content Databases to add
them back to the portal site.
6. The portal should now be available for browse.
7. Use the IP for the portal site URL address. That should void the need to have
to manually do these steps to recover the site going forward.

■ About restores of SharePoint Server and Windows SharePoint Services
When you perform restores, you should administer restore jobs from the
NetBackup master server or the SharePoint front-end server. When you
run a restore job from the master server, the jobs run but no progress log
appears. You must monitor the job status from the job details on the master
server. Symantec recommends that you run the restore jobs from the
SharePoint front-end server.
■ You can redirect SharePoint sites, documents, lists or items to a path, a
workspace, or a document library, as follows:
- Redirect to path. In the Restore to drive or UNC path box, enter the drive
letter or UNC Path. Use the following format for a UNC path:
\\servername\share. In the Restore to path box, enter the path to which
you want to direct the restore.
- Redirect to the workspace or the document library
(WebStorageSystem-based only). This option only applies to SharePoint
2001 restores.
NOTE: When you direct items to a file system, any list items you selected
are not restored and appear as 0-KB files . If you redirect list items to a file
system, the item itself is a 0-KB file but if the list item has any attachments
they get restored.
- Redirect to the Windows file system. When you use a drive letter it must
be entered C:\ (or whatever drive letter the users chooses) and the "Restore
to Path" must be entered as "restored data". The granular restore run on
the backend server.

Storage-related issues
■ (ET1702148) An enhancement has been made to the improve resource
allocation overhead for duplication jobs. A duplication job typically copies
multiple images. Within a duplication job, after each image is copied, the
resources to read the next image are reallocated. If read resources for each
image are re-allocated then an overhead problem can occur if you duplicate a
large number of very small images. When you duplicate small images, the
overhead to reallocate resources for each image is disproportionably large.
The overhead is large in comparison to the time it takes to copy each image.
The changes in this version of NetBackup significantly reduce the time it takes
to grant resources for read requests for each image.

■ (ET1590866) When creating an offline, cold-catalog backup, do not include
the /usr/openv/db directory in the backup selection list. Upon recovery, that

■ (ET1829684) Any Active Directory backup is always a full backup, whether it
is a granular backup or not. That means that whenever Active Directory is in
a policy’s backup selection list, the AD portion is always backed up fully even
when the backup type is incremental, differential or cumulative. Any other
items in the Backup Selections list may use a differential backup or a
cumulative-incremental backup type as indicated. Even though a full backup
is forced for an Active Directory backup, normal incremental rules apply to
the non-AD items in the policy file list.
■ (ET1765334) When using OST or PureDisk Optimized Duplication between
two similar devices, the read side of the duplication job is not counted against
the I/O stream limit that is configured for volumes in a disk group.
If OST Optimized Duplication is used to copy an image between two similar
devices, the duplication job is not counted as an active I/O stream for the disk
volume from which the image is read. In other words, the I/O stream limit
setting does not limit the number of optimized duplication jobs that can read
images from OST/PureDisk disk volumes and cannot be used as a mechanism
to prevent these disk volumes from becoming overloaded. That can cause slow
performance for backup and duplication jobs if too many jobs are running at
one time on the same disk volume.
■ (ET1737495) When a policy writes multiple copies to disk storage units and
tape storage units, and if multiplexing is configured, the result is the lowest
multiplexed value. For a policy to create multiple copies that are multiplexed,
the storage units that the policy writes to must be all tape storage units. If the
types are mixed, multiplexing does not occur.
■ (ET1502680) When creating Active Directory objects, it is advisable to take
advantage of the schema that Microsoft provides. To place things outside of
the schema means that though it may be possible to successfully perform a
Granular backup, it is not possible to browse those Active Directory objects
that have been oddly placed. An object that cannot be browsed also cannot be
restored.
For example, the situation in which one creates a user or computer in the
Domain Controllers container. The object is included in a successful granular
backup, but is not displayed in a browse. Since it is not displayed in a browse,
it cannot be restored.

■ (ET1538745) Destinations within a storage lifecycle policy may be backup


destinations or duplication destinations.
Duplication destinations can be configured to indicate an alternate read server.
The alternate read server can read a backup image that a different media server
originally wrote.
Each destination belongs to a particular disk pool. The alternate read server
that is indicated as a duplication destination in the same storage lifecycle
policy must be a server for the disk pool of the source backup destination. Disk
pools are listed under Media and Device Management > Devices > Disk Pools.
■ (ET1543025) Both types of backup staging methods make use of capacity
management on disk storage units. That means that NetBackup automatically
removes expired images from the storage unit to create space for new images.
In either situation, NetBackup cannot manage the capacity of a storage unit
that is NFS-mounted:
■ For basic disk staging:
The disk staging storage unit is capacity-managed by default. Do not make
a DSSU out of a storage unit that is NFS-mounted. (That is, do not select
the Enable Temporary Staging Area option for that storage unit.)
■ For storage lifecycle policies:
A destination can be configured to be capacity-managed. Do not enable the
Staged Capacity Managed option for any destination that is NFS-mounted.

■ (ET1543384) Backups to disk may fail with status code 800
During heavy NetBackup media server activity, backups to disk may fail with
a NetBackup status code of 800. The code appears in the Administration Console
Activity Monitor Job Details display.
See the NetBackup Troubleshooting Guide description of NetBackup status
code 800 for remedial action.
Jobs may fail because the heavy load causes processes to wait longer than the
default timeout period (60 seconds). You can try to increase the timeout by
creating the following file on the media server:
UNIX: /usr/openv/netbackup/db/config/DPS_PROXYDEFAULTRECVTMO
About known issues 33

■ The SAN Client does not support inline tape copy over Fibre Transport. Inline
tape copy jobs occur over the LAN. The SAN Client is designed for very high

■ The following list of issues applies to AdvancedDisk .
■ Windows Common Internet File System (CIFS) is not supported.
■ For NFS, you must use manual mount points.
■ Symantec recommends that you do not span backup images across volumes

adequately. Therefore, each disk pool should be comprised of only one
volume.

■ (ET1128929) Potential free space is the amount of space on a disk staging


storage unit (DSSU) or on a lifecycle policy destination that NetBackup can
free if extra space on the volume is needed. (Use the nbdevquery command to
display the potential_free_space and the free_space value.) The potential free
space value represents the total size of the image copies that are eligible for
expiration.
To create free space, an administrator can run the bpexpdate command to
manually expire eligible image copies on the volume. That changes the potential
free space into available free space.
If nbdevquery is run after bpexpdate is used, the potential free space value
should be reduced, and the free space value should be increased. However,
that is not the case. The nbdevquery command does not display the correct
value of potential free space until one of the following update events occurs:
■ In the case of DSSUs: When the high water mark or a disk-full condition
is reached on the storage unit. The automatic expiration of eligible copies
34 About known issues
Storage-related issues

of staged images occurs and then the potential_free_space value for that
disk is recalculated.
■ For disk destinations within lifecycle policies: When a duplication job that
writes to the disk completes, the potential_free_space value for that disk
is recalculated.
Suppose a copy of an image is beyond its try-to-keep date, and is a candidate
for removal from disk. For instance, this copy of the image is counted as a part
of the potential-free-space value. If a user uses the bpexpdate command to
manually expire this copy of the image from disk, the potential-free-space
value is not decremented to reflect the action that was taken until the whole
potential-free-space value is recalculated. Until the value is recalculated, the
user and NetBackup think that there is more available space on the disk than
there is.
The potential-free-space value is recalculated:
■ When the High Water Mark (HWM) condition forces a draining of the disk
down to Low Water Mark (LWM).
■ When an image is fully duplicated, thus being "Lifecycle complete".
The "Available space" is free space plus potential free space . The file system
increments the free space , but NetBackup does not decrement the potential
free space . Thus, the size of the image that was expired is counted twice as
both free space and potential free space . That is the reason why it looks to the
user and NetBackup like the disk has more space than there is. In addition,
that may cause NetBackup to assign jobs to the disk that have a larger,
total-estimated size than is available.

■ (ET1980306) You are not able to search for backup images under the Catalog
node (Action > Verify) of the NetBackup Administration Console.
If you encounter this issue, start the user interface from the Recent Programs
list.
■ You browse for granular backups differently on the MFC user interface than
you do when you use the NetBackup-Java Administration Console. That happens
with granular backups from Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SharePoint, or
Microsoft Active Directory. The difference occurs when you click on a granular
node to expand the node and view its contents. A noticeable delay and
unnecessary overhead can occur when you expand a granular node on the MFC
user interface. The MFC user interface may expand more than was requested
in an attempt to minimize this delay. The NetBackup-Java Administration
Console does not do that. The NetBackup-Java Console requires the user to
make additional node expansion clicks and causes an additional delay.
■ (ET1517333) To back up all local drives, Symantec recommends that you use
a scheduled backup from the master server. This method is much faster than
performing a user-directed backup of all local drives from the client in Backup,
Archive, and Restore.
■ (ET1224679) If two instances of the NetBackup Administration Console are
running on two separate remote desktop sessions on the same server, the
console may crash. This issue does not occur very often. The issue is not a
regression and is outside of the normal scope of operations.

■ (ET1395328) When using the bp or the bpadm interface on HP-UX 11.23 or


11.31 systems on Integrity (IA-64) architecture, a DATE ERROR is returned
during attempts to change dates. For more information about this issue, refer
to the following Technote on the Symantec Support Web site.

■ (ET1231347) As a result of a security fix to handle characters like "<", ">", and
";", a user could issue UNIX commands without being a root user. Because the
NetBackup-Java Administration Console uses the command line interface (CLI)
to create policies, these characters cannot be allowed as text entries in policies.
The security fix cannot be removed. Therefore, to work around this issue, the
user should use a Java Administration Console that is running on a Windows
workstation to create policies for MSEO.

■ On a media server (stand-alone or clustered), if the media server system is
shut down or a failover occurs while the media server is involved in a restore
operation, further restore operations involving this media server do not
function. For more information about this issue, refer to the following Technote
on the Symantec Support Web site.

■ (ET1750852) The NetBackup VxFI provider does not work with IBM DS 8300
arrays. For more information, refer to the following Technote on the Symantec
Support Web site.
http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/329598

■ (ET1116304) To view the log messages that PBX exchange generates, use the
utility, vxlogview, that the VRTSicsco package installs. Typically, the
VRTSicsco package is installed at /opt/VRTSicsco on UNIX systems and
CommonProgramFiles\VERITAS\VRTSicsco on Windows systems. You should
not use vxlogview that another package installs. Installing the utility from
another package may cause errors because of a version and an architecture
mismatch.
■ (ET 1993115) NetBackup 6.5.6 Snapshot Client supports no more than 40 rows
of “Snapshot Resources” entries per policy for certain disk arrays
For the following disk array snapshot methods, NetBackup can support up to
40 rows of entries in the Snapshot Resources pane of the policy’s Snapshot
Options dialog. Each row consists of an array serial number, an ID for the
source device, and IDs for one or more snapshot devices.
About known issues 37
General NetBackup issues

If you specify more than 40 rows for any of the following methods, the backup
of the array may not succeed:
■ Hitachi_ShadowImage
■ Hitachi_CopyOnWrite
■ EMC_TimeFinder_Clone
■ EMC_TimeFinder_Mirror
■ EMC_TimeFinder_Snap
■ EMC_CLARiiON_Snapview_Clone
■ IBM_DiskStorage_FlashCopy
For policy configuration assistance for these array snapshot methods, refer
to the NetBackup Snapshot Client Administrator's Guide.
■ About VSS and hot to manage snapshot volume size
In the NetBackup 7.0GA, 6.5.4 and 6.5.5 releases, NetBackup attempted to
manage the size of the VSS snapshot volume. To do that, NetBackup changed
any unbounded VSS associations to a fixed size. That size was based on the
size of the disk drive. The objective was to prevent the unbounded VSS
associations that can fill a hard drive and affect the system operation. In
releases after 7.0GA and 6.5.5 that is no longer be done and that system
management setting is beyond the scope of NetBackup to alter.
A customer who has upgraded from one of these levels might have failed
backups because NetBackup has changed this setting. For that to occur all of
the following must be true:
■ Customer has upgraded from 6.5.4, 6.5.5 or 7.0GA.
■ An unlimited VSS association on a client
■ NetBackup backed up that client (and therefore modified the setting)
■ The client OS is Windows 2008 or 2008 R2 Server
■ The backups are either multistreamed, or the backups create the VSS
snapshots that overlap in time.
In this case the association is set too small and future snapshots might be
deleted before they are backed up. To correct this issue, set the association to
a larger, more appropriate value. Refer to Microsoft documentation for details
on how to set this system management setting.
■ (ET2020528) To configure array access for NetBackup hosts not named in a
policy
In the following cases, you must explicitly enable NetBackup to access disk
array credentials:
38 About known issues
General NetBackup issues

■ Certain NetBackup hosts that are not named as clients in a policy must be
explicitly enabled to access array credentials. An example is an alternate
client that is used for off-host backup processing but is not included in the
policy’s Clients list.
■ Microsoft Exchange is installed on a hardware disk array such that Windows
VSS uses the hardware snapshot provider. If you define an MS-Exchange
policy with Snapshot Client and Instant Recovery, but you accept the
defaults for Snapshot Client Options, NetBackup must be explicitly enabled
to access the array credentials. (Note: This requirement does not apply if
you set the VSS Provider Type to 3-hardware.)
To enable NetBackup to access the array credentials:
■ In the NetBackup Administration Console, click Host Properties > Master
servers > double-click name of master server > Properties > Credential
Access.
■ Click Add to enter the name of the client. Then click OK.
You can use the following as an alternative procedure:
■ UNIX:
On the NetBackup master server, add the following line to the
/usr/openv/netbackup/bp.conf file, one line for each NetBackup host:
DISK_CLIENT = host_name
Until the DISK_CLIENT entry is made to the bp.conf file, a point-in-time
rollback fails with NetBackup status 5.
■ Windows:

1 On the NetBackup master server, click Start > Run and enter regedit.

2 To be on the safe side, make a backup of the current registry (File > Export).

3 Go to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\VERITAS\NetBackup\CurrrentVersion\Config.

4 Right-click in the right pane and select New > String Value. Enter the
following: DISK_CLIENT

5 Right-click on the new DISK_CLIENT name and select Modify.

6 For the Value data field, enter the host names of the clients that are not
named in any policy. To specify multiple host names, separate the names
with a space.

7 Click OK. Until this entry is made in the Windows registry, a point-in-time
rollback fails with NetBackup status 5.
About known issues 39
General NetBackup issues

■ (ET1953216) Snapshot-only restores fail with a private provider error on a


rollback attempt.
The failure occurs because NetBackup was unable to retrieve the required disk
array credentials from the master server. The DISK_CLIENT=;client credential
should be to the NetBackup registry of the master server, so the rollback can
succeed.)
You should configure the array access for NetBackup hosts that are not named
in the policy. You must explicitly enable certain NetBackup hosts that are not
named as clients in a policy to access array credentials. An example is a media
server that is used for off-host backup processing but is not included in any
policy’s Clients list.
To allow the host to access credentials, do the following:
■ In the NetBackup Administration Console, click Host Properties > Master
servers, then double-click name of master server and choose, Properties
> Credential Access.
■ Click Add, to enter the name of the client.
■ Click OK.

■ Configuring permissions for log files


NetBackup uses the /usr/openv/netbackup/logs directory tree to record
troubleshooting information and to obtain progress and communication
updates to users and other NetBackup applications. Restrictive permissions
on these directories can not only disable the collection of troubleshooting data,
but also prevent the application itself from functioning correctly.
Back up and restore operations fail when permissions are too restrictive.
Symantec recommends that you make all of the usr/openv/netbackup/logs
directories and subdirectories readable and writeable by all users (777
permissions). However, security requirements may prohibit global read-write
access. If so, you can restrict permissions of specific directories to a single
group or user if the following is true: All backup and restore operations that
are related to that directory are initiated by the processes that run as members
of that group or as that user.
Check that the /usr/openv/netbackup/logs/user_ops directory tree has 777
permissions. The items in this directory need to be accessible for the
applications to operate correctly.
If you restrict permissions on the other directories that are located in
/usr/openv/netbackup/logs, backup and restore operations are not affected.
However, troubleshooting efforts may be hindered when processes do not have
the appropriate permissions to update the debug logs therein.
■ (ET1136915) NetBackup recognizes wildcard character usage in some areas,
such as in backup selection lists and exclude file lists. You can use curly
40 About known issues
General NetBackup issues

brackets or braces around multiple wildcard file name patterns, as described


in the Administrator's Guide.
However, since curly bracket characters are valid characters for Windows file
names, they cannot be used to indicate wildcard usage for Windows platforms.
Also, backslashes cannot be used as escape characters for curly bracket
characters.
■ (ET1720780) VMware VCB FlashBackup restores to an alternate client fail with
a status 5 error.

■ (ET1940490) VMware Mapped Full VM backups do not support mapping of


IDE disks.
Mapped VM backups fail if the VM contains IDE disk(s).
■ (ET1636600) Backup problem with MS-Windows-NT policy type and VMware
ESX version 3.0 and 3.0.1
Symantec identified a problem when backing up a NetBackup client that is
installed in a Windows operating system on certain versions of VMware ESX
servers. If you select the MS-Windows-NT policy type, and the ESX server is
at version 3.0 or 3.0.1, the backup job hangs.
This problem is apparently due to an issue in ESX server versions 3.0 or 3.0.1,
not in NetBackup.
Potential workarounds are the following:
■ Update your ESX server to 3.0.2 or later.
■ Or, configure a VMware backup proxy server and use NetBackup for VMware
to perform the backup. For assistance with NetBackup for VMware, see the
"NetBackup for VMware Administrator's Guide."

■ (ET1593098) An error message is issued when an attempt to validate VMware


credentials occurs.
NetBackup 6.5.4 added the ability to verify that the VMware credentials that
you entered in the NetBackup policy are valid for the VMware server. The
NetBackup Add virtual machine server dialog now contains a "Validate
Credentials" checkbox.

Note: If your VMware proxy server is running a version of NetBackup that is


earlier than 6.5.4, the credentials cannot be validated. That causes an error
message to appear. You must verify that the credentials you entered are correct
for the VMware server. If the credentials are correct, you can ignore the error
message.

■ If a virtual machine backup uses VCB and the policy is configured with the
Mapped full VM backup option, the backup fails if the virtual machine contains
an IDE disk.
To use the Mapped full VM backup option with VCB, you must reconfigure
the virtual machine so that it does not contain IDE disks.
For descriptions of other backup options, see the "Configuration parameters
for VMware" section of the NetBackup for VMware Administrator's Guide, for
NetBackup 7.0.
■ NetBackup now supports EMC Solutions Enabler 7.0 with the following
snapshot methods for EMC disk arrays:EMC_TimeFinder_Clone,
EMC_TimeFinder_Mirror, EMC_TimeFinder_Snap.

■ (ET1556112) As part of the catalog policy configuration, the administrator


indicates a path to the directory where the disaster recovery information is
saved. This path is indicated on the Disaster Recovery tab.
The path for the disaster recovery information cannot be to a directory that
is on the same partition as /usr/openv/netbackup. If the path for the disaster
recovery information is to a location on the same partition as
/usr/openv/netbackup, NetBackup displays a status 20 error message. The
message states that the disk path is invalid. The administrator needs to change
the path on the Disaster Recovery tab to a directory on a different partition.
■ In rare situations the first backup attempt after NetBackup is installed may
fail. That can happen if the backup is granular and if Microsoft Volume Shadow
Copy Services (VSS) is used. In addition, after this one failure all subsequent
backups succeed.
■ (ET1535587) The media server that was used for catalog backups must be at
the same level as the master server. That is true for hot or cold catalog backups.
■ (ET1504682) The bpbackup command is used to perform user backups from
clients and manual backups from master servers. In addition to listing
individual files or directories, bpbackup can also use directives to indicate the
files to be backed up. For example: bpbackup /Shadow Copy Components/
bpbackup /System State/.
Clients can enter the directive in the list file by using the following option:
bpbackup -f listfile.

■ (ET1536915) Do not save logs to a remote file system such as NFS or CIFS.
Logs that are stored remotely and then grow large can cause critical
performance issues.
■ (ET1539585) In this release, an administrator can resume a suspended job
until the retention period of the job is met. The retention period begins when
the job is suspended. If the administrator resumes the job after the retention

period passes, the job fails because the image has expired. The job is then
moved to the DONE state.

Note: The Clean-up host property, "Move backup job from incomplete state to
done state," does not apply to suspended jobs. Jobs are suspended manually
and must be resumed manually.

■ (ET1512562) Individual restore of mails from BE images is not supported in


NetBackup 6.5.x as mentioned in the NetBackup online Help.
■ (ET1260712) NetBackup considers the failure history of a policy when it
determines whether or not to run a scheduled backup job. The timeframe for
NetBackup to examine one of the configured settings occurs when you use the
Schedule Backup Attempts setting in the Global Attributes host properties.
This property determines the following characteristics for each policy:
■ How many preceding hours NetBackup examines before it determines
whether to allow another backup attempt (retry). By default, NetBackup
examines the past 12 hours.
■ How many times a backup can be retried within that timeframe. By default,
NetBackup allows two attempts. Attempts include the scheduled backups
that start automatically or the scheduled backups that a user initiates.
In NetBackup 6.0 and later, all backup attempts apply toward this configurable
limit, regardless of the type of backup or the schedule. In releases before 6.0,
NetBackup allowed each schedule to meet the Schedule Backup Attempts
property limit. In some cases that resulted in more backup attempts than
expected based on the property setting.
Consider the following 6.5 example scenario using the default setting: two
tries every 12 hours:
■ Policy_A runs at 6:00 P.M.; Schedule_1 fails.
■ Policy_A is user-initiated at 8:00 P.M.; Schedule_2 fails.
■ At 11:00 P.M., NetBackup looks at the previous 12 hours. It sees one attempt
at 6:00 P.M. and one attempt at 8:00 P.M. The Schedule backup attempts
setting of two has been met so NetBackup does not try again.
■ At 6:30 A.M. the next morning, NetBackup looks at the previous 12 hours.
It sees only one attempt at 8:00 P.M. The Schedule backup attempts setting
of two has not been met so NetBackup tries again. If a schedule window is
not open at this time, NetBackup waits until a window is open.

■ (ET1260712) For master servers at NetBackup version 6.5 or later, the


ALLOW_MULTIPLE_RETENTIONS_PER_MEDIA setting in the bp.conf file has

no effect. To allow mixed retention levels on media, use the nbemmcmd command
to update the nbemm database and change the
ALLOW_MULTIPLE_RETENTIONS_PER_MEDIA setting. The default
configuration does not allow multiple versions (a setting of 0 or no).
To allow multiple retention levels, use nbemmcmd -changesetting to change
the ALLOW_MULTIPLE_RETENTIONS_PER_MEDIA setting to 1 or yes.
■ (ET1364268) In 6.5.2 NetBackup introduced the ability to allow, restrict, or
prohibit reverse host name lookup for master servers, media servers, and
clients.
Administrators can configure this using several methods:
■ By changing the Network Settings host properties in the Administration
Console.
■ By editing the bp.conf file (UNIX) or the Windows Registry.
■ New in 6.5.4: By using the bpclntcmd command on UNIX or Windows
systems.
Using the bpclntcmd command:
To display the current configuration setting, enter the command: bpclntcmd
-reverse_name_lookup

To change the entry, log on to the system as root or Administrator. Enter one
of the following commands:
■ To allow reverse host name lookup (default), enter:
bpclntcmd -reverse_name_lookup allowed
This setting indicates that the host requires reverse host name lookup to
work to determine that the connection comes from a recognizable server.
■ To restrict reverse host name lookup, enter:
bpclntcmd -reverse_name_lookup restricted
This setting indicates that the NetBackup host first attempts to perform
reverse host name lookup. If the NetBackup host successfully resolves the
IP address of the connecting server to a host name (reverse lookup is
successful), it compares the host name to the list of known server host
names.
If the resolution of the IP address to a host name fails (reverse lookup fails),
based on the Restricted setting, the host converts the host names of the
known server list to IP addresses (using a forward lookup). The host
compares the IP address of the connecting server to the list of known server
IP addresses.
If the comparison fails, the host rejects the connection from server and the
connection fails.
44 About known issues
General NetBackup issues

■ To prohibit reverse host name lookup, enter:


bpclntcmd -reverse_name_lookup prohibited
This setting indicates that the NetBackup host does not try reverse host
name lookup at all. The host resolves the host names of the known server
list to IP addresses using forward lookups. The NetBackup host then
compares the IP address of the connecting server to the list of known server
IP addresses.
If the comparison fails, the NetBackup host rejects the connection from
the server and the connection fails.

■ (ET1436810) Calendar incremental backups may not run on the same day as
a calendar full backup as been scheduled.
■ (ET1199036 and ET1181074) Users may get a core dump of dbeng9 after a Full
Catalog Backup recovery. That is not a Symantec NetBackup issue. This core
dump can be deleted and ignored. Testing showed that the catalog recovery
completed successfully and that bprecover handled the core dump issue
appropriately.
■ (ET1268670) In NetBackup 6.5.2, a user cannot change the NDMP hosts in
Device Configuration Wizard on the NetBackup-Java Administration console.
You can use one of the following two workarounds to accomplish this task:
■ Using the user interface:
1. Expand Credential within the left pane of the NetBackup-Java

2. Select NDMP Hosts.
3. Select the NDMP host to change.
4. Right-click the NDMP host and select Change from the drop-down menu.

■ (ET1174736) This release contains a 32-bit Windows memory management


limitation. Windows can only address 4GB of memory. If an attempt is made
to perform a FlashBackup of volumes that are larger than 10TB, that it requires
more than 4GB of memory to store the bitmap that needs to be created for the
restore of single files. To work around this issue, Symantec recommends that
you make smaller volumes or use a UNIX master server.
■ (ET1412544) The Windows NTFS file system supports the new junction points
feature. A junction point can be set up to provide access to files in a local
directory (similar in function to a symbolic link). For backups of a VMware
virtual machine, NetBackup for VMware does not currently support a junction
point as the snapshot mount point on the VMware backup proxy server. The
snapshot mount point must be a local directory on the proxy server, not a
junction point that refers to a local directory. Support for junction points as
the snapshot mount point on the proxy server will be added in a future release.

■ VMware NetBackup Integration Module (VNIM) not required.


The VMware NetBackup Integration Module (VNIM) is not required for
NetBackup for VMware. In fact, NetBackup for VMware cannot function if
VNIM is installed.

Note: NOTE: If VNIM is installed, you must uninstall it before running any
backups.

■ The following list of issues applies to AdvancedDisk .


■ Windows Common Internet File System (CIFS) is not supported.
■ For NFS, you must use manual mount points.
■ Symantec recommends that you do not span backup images across volumes
in an AdvancedDisk disk pool. File system full conditions cannot be detected
adequately. Therefore, each disk pool should be comprised of only one
volume.

NetBackup Hyper-V issues


■ NetBackup for Hyper-V 6.5.x does not support the use of a single policy to
protect all virtual machines that reside on all nodes of the cluster. You must
create an individual policy for each cluster node (Hyper-V host). Because virtual
machines can migrate from one node to another, you may have to update an
existing policy to ensure that virtual machines are backed up.
Please note the following:
■ For a cluster with two nodes, node A (active) and node B (passive), all the
virtual machines are on the active node A. Therefore, the Clients list of the
NetBackup policy for node A must include all the virtual machines. If node
A fails over to node B, node B becomes active and all the virtual machines
migrate to node B. In that case, you must have a policy for node B that lists
all the virtual machines, and the old policy for node A can be deactivated.
In other words, two policies are required (one for each node), but only one
policy needs to be active at any given time. Each policy's Clients list must
contain all the virtual machines in the cluster that need to be protected.
About known issues 47
NetBackup Hyper-V issues

■ For a cluster with two active nodes A and B, you must have two policies
activated at the same time, one for each node. All virtual machines in the
cluster must be named in the Clients list of each policy. Since a virtual
machine could be running on either active node, a backup started for one
node (where the virtual machine happens to exist) succeeds. A backup
started for the other node (where the virtual machine does not exist) fails.
A number of backups jobs will fail, but this configuration ensures that
virtual machines are backed up as part of at least one policy.
■ For a virtual machine that is configured on a Windows volume GUID: If
cluster nodes A and B each refer to the volume GUID on a shared storage
device that is formatted with the MBR format, the volume GUID used by
node A for the virtual machine is not the same as the GUID used by node
B for the same virtual machine. In other words, the virtual machine's volume
GUID is different on different nodes. As a result, if the virtual machine is
active on the node where it was created (node A), a backup of the virtual
machine using the policy for node A succeeds. If the same virtual machine
is active on a different node (node B instead of A), a backup of the virtual
machine using the policy for node B fails. Only the policy that was created
for node A can successfully back up the virtual machine.

■ (ET1790770) Hyper-V snapshots (.avhd files) and status code 1


If a snapshot of the virtual machine (.avhd file) occurs during a NetBackup
backup of the virtual machine, the backup may be partially successful. A
message similar to the following appears in the bpbkar log:

48 About known issues
NetBackup Hyper-V issues

You must manually delete the spurious saved state after the restore and
then start the virtual machine . This issue can occur when the Virtual
Machine is backed up in an online state and the expected state after the
restore is OFF. However, because of the Hyper-V behavior on these this
type of platform, the virtual machine goes into a spurious SAVED state.
During the restore, Hyper-V-VMMS logs the event ID 12340. The following
is a sample event log message:

■ The virtual machine fails to start after a full virtual machine restore because
the virtual machine that was backed up on a Windows 2008 server was restored
on a Windows Server 2008 R2 server.
If a virtual machine was configured on a Hyper-V Server 2008 V1 when the
virtual machine was backed up a failure could occur. The failure occurs if at
the time of the backup the virtual machine was not in the Off state, the restored

virtual machine fails to start if it is restored to a Hyper-V Server 2008 R2. A


Hyper-V message states:
An error occurred while attempting to start the selected virtual
machine(s). <virtual machine name> could not initialize. Saved
state file version is incompatible.
In this case, you must delete the saved state file after the restore and then
start the virtual machine. In the Hyper-V Manager interface, right click on the
restored virtual machine and select Delete Saved State.
■ (ET1656180) NetBackup for Hyper-V has a virtual machine restore option
called "Overwrite virtual machine." This option removes a virtual machine on
the destination server before the same virtual machine is restored from its
backup. If the Overwrite virtual machine option is not selected and a virtual
machine with the same GUID exists on the destination server, the restore fails.
The failure is a NetBackup status code 5 and the failure is a normal (expected)
result.
However, if you restore a virtual machine without choosing the "Overwrite
virtual machine" option, and the virtual machine exists on the destination
Hyper-V server, the restore fails (as expected) but the existing virtual machine
is turned off.
■ (ET1663569) A minor problem occurs if you change an option in a
FlashBackup-Windows policy for Hyper-V, on the Snapshot Client Options
dialog. When you use the keyboard to enter a new configuration parameter
for an existing policy, the value is not retained when you save the policy.
■ When common (or parent) .vhd files and child .vhd files are restored to a drive
other than their original drive (such as to G:\ instead of to E:\), the
restored child .vhd files may not correctly point to the restored parent .vhd
file on the G:\ drive. As a result, the restored virtual machines that rely on
the common (parent) .vhd file are invalid. Make sure to restore the parent and
the child .vhd files to the same relative path names that they had before the
restore.
For example, assume the following:
■ The original parent was in E:\folder1\parent.vhd.
■ The original child was in E:\folder2\child.vhd.
■ The parent and the child .vhd files are restored to the G: drive.
The child .vhd file can correctly refer to the parent .vhd file on the G: drive,
if you restore the parent .vhd file to G:\restore_folder\folder1\parent.vhd
and the child to G:\restore_folder\folder2\child.vhd.

This issue may be fixed in a Windows 2008 Hyper-V update from Microsoft.
After it is fixed, you do not have to maintain the same relative paths in the
restore locations.
■ (ET1514145) If you restore the full virtual machine to a different location on
the original Hyper-V server or to a different Hyper-V server, the virtual
machine may fail to start. This failure may be due to a bug in the Microsoft
Hyper-V writer. The problem occurs when the virtual machine has two or more
levels of differencing disks. For example: A child.vhd file points to a parent.vhd
file, and that file points to a grandparent.vhd file.
After the restore, use the Hyper-V Manager to manually re-establish the
relationship between the different disks (such as child.vhd to parent.vhd to
grandparent.vhd).
A fix for this issue should be available in Windows 2008 SP2.
■ NetBackup for Hyper-V and Logical Disk Manager (LDM) If a virtual disk on a
Hyper-V virtual machine has been configured for LDM volumes, and the
NetBackup policy specifies the "2-Mapped FullVM" option, in certain cases a
backup of the virtual machine may not complete. The NetBackup job may issue
status 1, "the requested operation was partially successful." This error can
occur if the controller type of the .vhd disk was SCSI when the disk was initially
formatted, but the controller type was later changed to IDE (or vice versa).
In this case, the NetBackup progress log may contain the following message:
ERR - Unable to retrieve volumes from virtual machine, error = 1
You must restore the controller type of the .vhd disk to the controller type
originally assigned before the LDM volume was created. Then retry the backup.
■ (ET1418453) The following is a known issue for redirected restores of the
Hyper-V virtual machines that were backed up in the "Saved" or "Paused"
state.
If a Hyper-V virtual machine is in the "Saved" or "Paused" state when
NetBackup backs it up, the virtual machine is in the "Off" state after it is
restored to a different location. The current Microsoft Hyper-V writer causes
the change of state to Off.
If you restore the virtual machine to its original location on the Hyper-V server,
the state of that computer after the backup is correctly restored. If the virtual
machine was in the Saved or Paused state, it is set to Saved or Paused after
the restore.
■ (ET1847204) The following exclude list issues can occur when you restore
individual files from an instant recovery snapshot:
■ When you restore files from a snapshot that was made for an instant
recovery off-host alternate client backup: NetBackup consults the exclude
list on the alternate client even when it restores files to the primary client.
About known issues 51
Bare Metal Restore (BMR) issues

If the exclude list on the alternate client is different from the exclude list
on the primary client, any of the files that are listed in the exclude list on
the alternate client are not restored to the primary client.
For example: If the alternate client's exclude list has the entry *.jpg, and
some .jpg files were included in the primary client backup, the .jpg files
can be selected for the restore but are not in fact restored. To restore the
files, you must change the exclude list on the alternate client.
■ When you restore files from a snapshot that was made for an instant
recovery backup (local or off-host alternate client): If the exclude list is
changed after the backup occurred, NetBackup honors the latest version
of the exclude list during the restore. Any files that are listed in the current
exclude list are not restored. Also, as noted in the previous item, the exclude
list on the alternate client takes precedence over the exclude list on the
primary client.
For example: If the current version of the exclude list has the entry *.jpg,
and some .jpg files were included in the backup, the .jpg files can be
selected for the restore but are not in fact restored. To restore the files,
you must change the exclude list on the primary (or alternate) client.
For ordinary snapshot backups, the exclude list is consulted during the
backup and any files in the exclude list are not backed up. For
snapshot-based backups, however, all files are included in the snapshot.
The exclude list is consulted only when a storage unit backup is created
from the snapshot. If the snapshot is retained after the backup (for the
instant recovery feature) and the snapshot is available at the time of the
restore, NetBackup restores files from the snapshot. Since all files are
available in the snapshot (including those that would be excluded from a
storage unit backup), NetBackup incorrectly consults the current exclude
list on the client or alternate client. Any files in the exclude list are skipped
during the restore.
This issue will be addressed in a future release of NetBackup.

Bare Metal Restore (BMR) issues


The following BMR issues are specific to UNIX systems:
■ (ET1861330) Restoring a Solaris SPARC-Sun4V client to a SAN disk using
BMR-DDR mechanism can cause a failure during the first boot. That can render
the restored system unusable.
BMR supports Dissimilar Disk Restore (DDR) of a Solaris host. You can map
system volumes or slices originally residing on a host’s local disks to SAN
Disks (LUNs). That enables the host to boot off the SAN-LUNs after the restore
is completed. In NetBackup 6.5.5, if the client system has a Solaris
52 About known issues

SPARC-Sun4V processor, then attempting this type of a restore can cause


failures during the first boot after a BMR restore. That can cause a kernel panic
and render the restored client unusable. No known workaround or solution
exists for this problem.
■ (ET1766898) Solaris10 x64 Update-5 and Solaris SPARC Update-6 client self
restore failed with a Windows 2003 x64 master server.
In the backup environment, if the NetBackup/BMR master server is a Windows
2003 (x86 or x64) host and the NetBackup/BMR client is a Solaris10_x64 or a
Solaris SPARC host, then the bare metal restore of the Solaris host fails. The
following message appears on the console of the Solaris client where the restore
failure occurred:
ERROR retrieving and/or generating disk usage data.
To avoid this issue, disable the logging from the BMR restore environment by
not selecting the Enable logging check box. You can disable the logging while
you perform a Prepare-To-Restore (PTR ) operation for a Solaris (SPARC or
x64) client with the NetBackup Administration Console. If you use the bmrprep
command line interface (CLI) to perform a PTR operation, then do not pass
the -logging parameter to the bmrprep command.

■ (ET1593625) The post-installation of Data Migration failed. This issue can
happen in a rare case. To resolve this issue, restart the server.
■ (ET1557986) The Catalog not backed up alerts were not generated if the
catalog back job failed. This alert works if no catalog backup job was run in
the specified time frame. However, this alert is not generated if a catalog
backup job was run but failed.
■ (ET1463349) NOM failed to log on after the patch installation. If you encounter
this issue, restart the NOM web console services after the upgrade.
■ Before you attempt to upgrade a NOM cluster from NetBackup 6.5.2 or 6.5.3
to NetBackup 6.5.6, you should freeze the cluster node. You can do that from
the VCS user interface or use the VCS command line.
■ On Solaris, if you downgrade a NOM cluster from NetBackup 6.5.6 to a previous
version, the NOM web version appears incorrectly on the inactive node.
■ On Windows, in a NOM cluster, the NetBackup 6.5.6 installer attempts to start
the services on the inactive node after the upgrade finishes.
■ If you have clustered NOM in 6.5.6 and decide that you want to "uncluster" it,
then you must change the path in the configlocation.conf file to

ENTERPRISE_VAULT_DBCC_CONT_ONERR should have been created and set
to 1 or the Continue with backup if consistency check fails is not checked as
the default.
■ (ET1592462) The ffile of the root job is correctly encoded with UTF-8,
however, the ffile of the child jobs are incorrectly encoded with Shift-JIS.
■ (ET1592583) Unexpected log conversion with vxlogview caused invalid

■ (ET1633814) If a logon account was not raised with UAC, nothing would happen
even if an attempt was made to right-click the tracker icon. And if you
double-clicked the tracker icon the tracker.exe would crash.

■ (ET1268273) FlashBackup incremental backups do not operate as described


in the NetBackup 6.5 Snapshot Client Administrator's Guide, page 82.
The next revision of the Snapshot Client guide contains information similar
to the following:
■ For FlashBackup and FlashBackup-Windows full policies, all blocks in the
disk or raw partition (as selected in the Backup Selections tab) are backed
up.
■ For FlashBackup and FlashBackup-Windows incremental policies, complete
files are backed up based on changes to the file Modified Time or Create
Time since the last full or incremental backup.
■ For FlashBackup-Windows Incremental policies, the Modified Time and
Create Time changes are queried from the NTFS Master File Table (MFT)
for File entries only. Directories are not queried. Any newly created or
modified files are backed up as complete files and corresponding directories
up the tree are also backed up. Newly created but empty directories are not
considered for FlashBackup-Windows incremental backups.

Warning: During FlashBackup-Windows incremental backups, jobs complete


with status 0 but some skipped files may occur due to limitations with the
NTFS file system.

system has encrypted, NetBackup is not able to back up these files. NetBackup
reports that it is unable to access the encrypted files and the backup continues
with all of the remaining files.
NOTE: That does not apply to NetBackup encryption. NetBackup encryption
is separate from the file system encryption meaning that NetBackup-encrypted

■ Description:
Persistent Frozen Images that span media may encounter a condition where
the NetBackup Job Manager (NBJM) cancels an active job upon notification
from the Policy Execution Manager (PEM). That would cause a status 223 error.
Etrack Incident: 1831736
■ Associated Primary Etrack: 1829981
■ TITAN cases: 281-756-782
■ Contained in: NBLU_6.5.6.UNIX NBLU_6.5.6.WIN NB_6.5.6 NB_6.5.6.winnt.IA64

■ Description:
The max_partially_full_media limit was not enforced for multiple copy jobs.
■ Additional Notes:
The max_partially_full_media limit is not enforced to be less than the
number of configured copies for a job. For example, if the
max_partially_full_media limit is configured at one for a pool, and the pool
is used in a two-copy job, the limit is enforced at two for that job.

■ Description:
The Disk Pool Committed Space algorithm was inappropriate to determine the
space allocation for user backups.
■ Additional Notes:
The estimated job size of user jobs (and oracle backup jobs) is computed as the
space difference between the high water mark and full capacity. In some
configurations that can cause jobs to be throttled even in instances where
there is a large amount of available disk space.
A change has been added that enables you to change the estimated size for
these jobs to a value of your choice. You can use the following command to
make that change:
nbemmcmd -changesetting -USER_JOB_KBYTES_ESTIMATE kbytes
-machinename masterservername
If a non-zero value is set for this parameter, then that value is used as an
estimated size for these jobs.

made that allows the BMR Restore Environment to fetch the original client's
scsiLoadOrder from the BMR master server. That happens even if media-based
restores (Virtual Media as well as Physical Media) are used. Thus, in normal
media-based restores scenarios, the user does not have to enter the
scsiLoadOrder manually.

■ Description:
NetBackup no longer relies on the nickname of the host connection object in
IBM 6000/8000 arrays. NetBackup depends on the name of that host-connect
object to identify the volume group. That change allows better scalability in
enterprise environments. The following is a list of reasons to support the need
for this change:
■ A client might have multiple volume groups for different business reasons.
As the nickname needs to be unique, it is not possible to have the same
name for all the host-connect objects.
■ A client might have multiple HBAs and hence the host connections need
to be defined more that once. As the nickname needs to be unique, it is not
possible to have the same name for all the host-connect objects.
■ A client may designate a few of the volumes in a group to have FlashCopy
relations.
Customers should not be constrained to have only one host connection and
that it must be the same as the hostname.

■ Description:
A change was made to ensure that an SRT is able to be created for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 4 (RHEL4) Update 8 and RHEL5 Updates 3 and 4.
In the RHEL 5 U4, the released iso .discinfo file contained the string, Red
Hat Enterprise Linux 5.4 and the createsrt.conf file contained an RHEL-5
entry with string, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. That caused the load media
to fail with the error, The loaded media is not correct.
That same issue affected RHEL4U8 as well.
■ Work around:
If you encounter that issue, modify the createsrt.conf file on the boot server
to add ".4" (or .3 for 5.3) in the string. For example, the following string shows
RHEL 5 was changed from a "5" to "5.4".

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server 5.4

That should be done in the [media] sections for RHEL5. That change enables
the creation of RHEL5.4 SRTs. However, this change disables the creation of
RHEL5.0/5.1/5.2 SRTs.

That issue is resolved in the NetBackup 7.0 release.


Please note that for 32-bit Linux x86 platforms, the oracle_link script may not
properly create the necessary symbolic link to the NetBackup libobk library.

When disk backups are run on a MEDIA_SERVER, bptm encounters non-fatal
errors (errors that are ignored) while it gets Data Classification information
from bpdbm. Due to these errors, the images that are created are not tagged
with Data Classification information. That may have some undesired effects
for later processing of the image as per storage lifecycle Policy or Data
Classification.
The fix gets rid of the error. It changes the bpdbm authorization table to allow
MEDIA_SERVER to query for the Data Classification information.

on different media servers.

■ **Description:
Three-character 3pc.conf entries from Device # and affects if a vendor's device
returns more than FFF LUNS (4095). NetBackup would use SCSI inquiry VPD
page code 80 data, a unit serial number as a unique identifier to correlate the
disks to back up between the client, and the media server for Media Server
Copy backups. When the Symmetrix device ID number is greater than or equal
to 4k (4096), the serial number may not be unique anymore. In addition, when
the Symmetrix device ID number is greater than 8k, the serial number may
contain numeral ASCII characters, such as the pound sign (#). That can cause
a Media Server Copy backup failure since the portion of the serial number
after the pound sign (#) was interpreted as a comment of the entry in the
3pc.conf.
That fix uses the SCSI inquiry VPD page 83 data, device identifier which does
not have the issues described above. For this fix to work you must consistently
set the SPC-2 flag to disable or enable for the Symmetrix ports. These ports
are used on the client and the media server, because different SPC-2 settings
give a different page code 83 device identifier. Also, the fix is
backward-compatible to use the SCSI inquiry VPD page code 80 serial number
in case the client does not have disks that have a Symmetrix ID greater than
4095.

■ Description:
On an upgrade to NetBackup 6.5.5, the Resource Broker (NBRB) would hang
at startup while the allocation database was validated. That caused the system
to be inoperable, particularly if there were a large number of outstanding
allocations when the system was shut down.

■ Additional Notes:
That also improves the performance of the nbrbutil -dump utility.
■ Work around:
If you encounter this issue, before you begin the upgrade, run nbrbutil
-resetAll against the previous version.

■ Description:
BMR boot server allows the creation of an ISO from a network boot shared
resource tree (SRT). In case of BMR ISOs for Linux, if the ISO is used by the
virtual device interface that the servers or remote console appliances provide,
the SRT is not recognized as a valid SRT in the BMR Restore environment.
Usually, an error message similar to the following appears in the restore
environment:

SRT: ERROR: No devices listed in /proc/sys/dev/cdrom/info

■ Work around:
The traditional Media Boot mechanism still works. For example, burn the ISO
on a CD-ROM and boot the system.

While writing backup images to BasicDisk and AdvancedDisk, synchronous


flushing of image data was not forced during an image close. That left a small
window of time where the data was not completely flushed (or sent) to the
disk. NetBackup however believes that all of the data was successfully flushed
(sent) in its entirety.

■ Description:
SAN Client backups of non-Windows clients that used polices with client
encryption options enabled were backed up without encryption in NetBackup
6.5GA through 6.5.5. That could have resulted in a data security issue if the
physical backup media custody were lost.
Restores of LAN-encrypted backups that use SAN Client on non-Windows
clients in NetBackup 6.5GA through 6.5.5 would restore the encrypted data
without decrypting it. That could cause a severe data loss , and corrupted the
running OS if the restored files were critical OS files.
That problem does not exist for SAN Client on the Windows operating systems.
■ Additional Notes:
That fix causes backup and restore jobs that use SAN Client on non-Windows
clients that involve client encryption options in the policy to generate a status
16 unimplemented error. That prevents the data security or data loss
possibilities.
After you install this patch, any previously generated SAN Client backup sets
from client-side encryption policies are NOT restorable without removing this
patch.
Attempts to restore these non-encrypted SAN Client backups from client
encryption option policies using LAN fail without restoring any data.

■ Description:
A problem existed in Vault and how it determined which tapes to eject based
on the physical status and location of the tapes. Vault makes this determination
before the ejection of the tape.
■ During the configured time for an eject, some tapes are either HOME,
IN_DRIVE and IN_TRANSIT
■ For the tapes that are in the HOME state, there is no problem, and they
are considered for ejection.
■ For the tapes that are in the IN_DRIVE state, there is no problem, and they
are not considered for ejection.
■ For the tapes that are in the IN_TRANSIT state there was a problem because
Vault considered those tapes for ejection, when they should not have been
considered.
The physical result of the vault eject for the above scenario is as follows:
■ No tapes made it into the CAP.
■ The user had to perform the ejection manually from the ACS robot.
The logical result of the vault eject for the above scenario is as follows:
■ The tapes that are in the IN_TRANSIT state could not be physically
ejected. The result was a status 224 (Control daemon connect or
protocol error) error.

■ Vault thinks the eject operation occurred and exited with final status
288 (partially successful eject) error.
Current release content 145
About NetBackup 6.5.6 Release Content

■ The Robot Pick List shows all tapes are EJECTED (except for the tapes
that in the IN_DRIVE state). That is not correct. The Robot Pick List
should show no tapes ejected, and that no tapes made it in into the CAP
(physically).

If a batch file was created to back up a large number of databases that use the
NetBackup for Microsoft SQL Server agent and specify $ALL to the database
keyword, the database backup operation gets "silently" skipped and yet report
a success. (A status code 0 is reported in the Activity Monitor). That same
result could occur when a large number of databases have been manually
enumerated within the batch file through the use of multiple database
keywords.
■ Work around:
To avoid this issue, perform the following:
Add the BATCHSIZE # directive to the batch file. Use a value that is equal to
or less than the number of databases listed in the batch file. Or use the number
that would be enumerated by use of the database $ALL directive.
Refer to the NetBackup 6.5 for Microsoft SQL Administrator's Guide for more
