Symantec NetBackup Robotic status code 206 to status code 210

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. Robotic daemons or processes issue these status codes. They are also issued by programs that call the robotic operations, such as the vmchange command and
the media and device management user interfaces.

Below are some of the NetBackup Robotic status code 206 to status code 210 which may be received while using the Symantec NetBackup tool.

Robotic status code 206
Message: Robotic dismount failure
Explanation: The robot could not dismount media.
¦ 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.
¦ Investigate the system log messages that are related to the specific error
leading to the media dismount failure.

Robotic status code 207
Message: Invalid command code
Explanation: A robotic operation was requested with improper options, when it
was not supported, or a robotic operation encountered an incompatible device
interface. There may be an incompatibility between components or versions of
the product.
¦ 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.
¦ Verify that all Media Manager binaries and user interfaces are at a compatible
version level.

Robotic status code 208
Message: Requested slot is empty
Explanation: No media was found in a specified slot. The volume configuration
may not be consistent with the physical contents of the robotic library that is
associated with the volume.
Recommended Action: Install or realign the container/holder for the media if it
is misplaced or misaligned. Place media right-side-up in the slot if the media is
upside-down. Check to see if the requested slot is reserved to the robotic library
for internal use. Physically correct issues within the robotic library, or use a media
management interface to correct the volume configuration.

Robotic status code 209
Message: Unable to open drive
Explanation: The drive could not be opened. The drive configuration may be
incorrect and the drive may be logically DOWN. Also, the drive may never have
become ready after media was placed in the drive.
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.
¦ Check for improperly configured cleaning media or interference with the drive
cleaning operation. Check for bad media that may have led to the drive not
becoming ready after media was placed within it.
¦ To avoid configuring incorrect device paths and device names, which is a
common cause of drive open problems, use the Device Configuration Wizard
(on supported device discovery platforms) so that device paths and device
names can be automatically configured. Investigate the system log messages
that are related to the specific error leading to the open failure.

Robotic status code 210
Message: Unable to SCSI unload drive
Explanation: The drive could not be unloaded. The drive configuration may be
incorrect and the drive may be logically DOWN. Also, the drive may never have
become ready after media was placed in the drive.
¦ 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.
¦ Check for improperly configured cleaning media or interference with the drive
cleaning operation. Check for bad media that may prevent unloading the drive.
To avoid configuring incorrect device paths and device names, which is a
commoncause of drive unload problems, use the Device Configuration Wizard
(on supported device discovery platforms) so that device paths and device
names can be automatically configured. Investigate the system log messages
that are related to the specific error leading to the unload failure.
