NetBackup status code: 101
Message: failed opening mail pipe
Explanation: The process that attempts to send mail did not open the pipe to the
server.
Recommended Action: Make sure that mail is configured on the client. For
detailed troubleshooting information, create a bpcd debug log directory and retry
the operation. Check the resulting bpcd debug log.

NetBackup status code: 102
Message: failed closing mail pipe
Explanation: The process that sends mail could not close the pipe to the server.
Recommended Action: Make sure that mail is configured on the client. For
detailed troubleshooting information, create a bpcd debug log directory and retry
the operation. Check the resulting bpcd debug log.

NetBackup status code: 103
Message: error occurred during initialization, check configuration file
Explanation: NetBackup Snapshot Client can perform two kinds of off-host
backups by means of a data mover: the NetBackup Media Server method or the
Third-Party Copy Device method. For either method, an off-host data mover
backup requires a configuration file (the 3pc.conf file) to identify the following
devices on the SAN:
¦ The client disks to back up
¦ The devices on which to store the data
Explanation: If the media server has access to many disks and storage devices
on the SAN, it may take too long to acquire the device information from the SAN.
As a result, if no 3pc.conf file exists on the media server, the first multistream
backup that uses a data mover method may fail.
Recommended Action: Create the 3pc.conf file manually before running the
first multistream data mover backup. Use the following command to create the
3pc.conf file:
# bptpcinfo -a
Recommended Action: The 3pc.conf file is created at
/usr/openv/volmgr/database/3pc.conf.
Recommended Action: More information is available on the 3pc.conf file and
how to create it.
RecommendedAction:See Configuring NetBackup for off-host data mover backups
in the NetBackup Snapshot Client Configuration document.
