SQLServerF1

Symantec NetBackup product is a backup and recovery product designed for enterprise users. Symantec NetBackup tool can be used to perform backups of SQL Server databases, Oracle, MySQL, Sybase, PostGres Databases, flat file backups, etc, and provides various other features. These status codes appear in exit status and command output for the ltid,
tpclean, tpreq, and tpunmount commands, and in system or debug logs. Programs
that call those commands, such as media and device management user interfaces
and the vmoprcmd command also presented these codes.

Below are some of the NetBackup Device management status code 46 to status code 50 which may be received while using the Symantec NetBackup tool.

Device management status code 46
Message: Tape needs to be write enabled
Explanation: On a tape mount request, the specified access mode was for write
access, but the physical media was write-protected.
RecommendedAction: Change the physical media write-protect setting to allow
write access (unlocked), or submit the request again with read-only access. To
request read-only access using tpreq, specify an access mode argument of r for
read or use the default (read) access mode.

Device management status code 47
Message: Unable to establish scan host for shared drive
Explanation: On a request to change a shared drive’s status, an attempt to
establish a connection to the drive’s scan host failed.
¦ Determine which host serves as the drive’s scan host: use vmoprcmd output or
by checking the Device Monitor in the Administration Console.
¦ Ensure that vmd (the NetBackup Volume Manager daemon on UNIX and Linux
or NetBackup Volume Manager service on Windows) is running on the scan
host. On the scan host, examine debug logs and system logs for any messages
that are related to the error.
¦ Examine command output, debug logs, and system logs for a more detailed
message on the error.
See “Setting debug logging to a higher level” in the Troubleshooting Guide.
¦ The detailed reason for the canceled request should be available in the daemon
debug logs on the scan host. Correct the problem and submit the request again
if needed.

Device management status code 48
Message: Host is not the scan host for this shared drive
Explanation: On a request to assign, reserve, or scan a drive, the targeted device
host determined that it was not the scan host for the drive. The request was refused
(the caller retries it).
¦ If problems are encountered as a result of the reported error, check for
communication, configuration, and system problems among the associated
hosts. To check, use vmoprcmd output or check the Device Monitor in the
Administration Console.
¦ Examine command output, debug logs, and system logs for a more detailed
message on the error.
See “Setting debug logging to a higher level” in the Troubleshooting Guide.
¦ Configure scan ability priorities for assigning scan hosts by changing the Media
Manager configuration. Configure so that less network connections need to
be maintained, and greater system load is placed on hosts with more capability
to service the load.

Device management status code 49
Message: Tape file path exceeds 255 character maximum
Explanation: On a tape mount request, the file name that is associated with the
request exceeds 255 characters.
RecommendedAction: Whenyou request a tape mount, ensure that the file name
does not exceed 255 ASCII characters in length. If the mount requests come from
an application, request an application change to use a shorter file name. Or install
the product in a directory or a folder that does not cause the file name limit to be
exceeded.

Device management status code 50
Message: No action pending for given mount index
Explanation: On a request to obtain the pending action for a mount request, no
known pending action was associated with the request.
Recommended Action: Use a device monitor interface to display any requests
that have pending actions. Perform requests (like assign, deny, display, or resubmit)
only on the requests that have pending actions.
