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. Media Manager software is part of NetBackup which manages the storage devices and removable media.

Below are some of the NetBackup Media Manager status code 51 to status code 55 which may be received while using the Symantec NetBackup tool.

Media Manager status code 51
Message: cannot auto-eject this robot type
Explanation: A request to change volume residence with media eject was sent to
vmd, but the volume’s robot type does not support automated media eject. (vmd
is the NetBackup Volume Manager daemon on UNIX and Linux or NetBackup
Volume Manager service on Windows.)
¦ 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.
¦ Ensure that change volume residence requests are not sent to vmd on a system
that runs an older, incompatible software version level. (The change volume
residence requests are requests with eject for the robot type that is involved
with a newer release version level.)

Media Manager status code 52
Message: cannot auto-inject this robot type
Explanation: A request to change volume residence with media inject was sent
to vmd, but the volume’s robot type does not support automated media inject. (vmd
is the NetBackup Volume Manager daemon on UNIX and Linux or NetBackup
Volume Manager service on Windows.)
¦ 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.
¦ Ensure that change volume residence requests are not sent to vmd on a system
that runs an older, incompatible software version level. (The change volume
residence requests are requests with inject for the robot type that is involved
with a newer release version level.)

Media Manager status code 53
Message: invalid volume move mode
Explanation: A robotic-related request was made specifying a media movement
option that not all affected software components supports.
¦ 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.
¦ Ensure that the robotic request is sent to a system that runs a release version
of software that supports the particular request.

Media Manager status code 54
Message: robot number and robot type mismatch
Explanation: A request was made to add or change volumes in the volume
configuration. The robot number to be associated with a volume is already in use.
It is associated with another volume in a robot with the same number but of
another robot type.
¦ 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.
¦ Ensure that robot numbers are unique for each physical robot in the EMM
database. Delete and re-add a robot. Use a unique robot number if duplicate
robot numbers are in use. Use a media management interface to identify robot
numbers currently in use for all volumes in the volume configuration. If you
use a command line interface, specify the correct robot type for the robot
number that is associated with the request.

Media Manager status code 55
Message: robot number and volume group mismatch
Explanation: A request was made to add or change volumes in the volume
configuration. The robot number and volume group that is associated with the
volume configuration changes are in conflict with the requirements for volume
groups. All volumes in a volume group are required to have the same residence,
which includes having the same robot number.
¦ 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.
¦ Ensure that the specified robot number and volume group are compatible. If
volumes in the volume group have a given robot number, then volumes with
a different robot number cannot be added to that volume group. Volumes
cannot be moved directly from one robotic volume group to another robotic
volume group. The intermediate steps (some volume entries are changed, some
are not) would cause a conflict with robot numbers. Choose a different volume
group on the request, or let the volume group be selected automatically. Volume
group selection depends on the specific interface being used.
