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 and provides various features.

Below are some of the NetBackup status error codes from Status Code 106 to Status Code 110 which may be received while using the Symantec NetBackup tool.

NetBackup status code: 106
Message: invalid file pathname found, cannot process request
Explanation: One of the file paths to be backed up or archived is not valid.
RecommendedAction: Verify that the full path names are used and that they do
not exceed the maximum path length for the system. (On UNIX and Linux, they
start with a slash character [ / ].) Also, verify that the files exist and the permissions
allow NetBackup to access them.

NetBackup status code: 108
Message: Action succeeded but auditing failed
Explanation: The primary action being audited has succeeded but the corresponding audit record has failed because it was never created.
For example, you use the bppolicynew command to create a policy and it returns
status code 108. The policy is created successfully, but the associated audit record
does not appear in the audit report that the nbauditreport command generates.
This error can be returned only if auditing is enabled using the nbemmcmd command.
Do the following:
¦ Ensure that the nbaudit daemon (NetBackup Audit Manager) is running.
Recommended Action: Examine the logs responsible for the primary action
and the nbaudit logs for more details on the cause of the error. For example,
check the bpdbm logs for policy creation.

NetBackup status code: 109
Message: invalid date specified
Explanation: This error can occur when you run a command on the command
line that contains a date option. The format of a date option can vary depending
on the locale of the master server.
Recommended Action: Do the following, as appropriate:
¦ If the error occurred on a command line, examine the standard error output
from the command for an explanatory message.
¦ Refer to the format for the date options in the usage statement for the
command. Look up the locale of the master server. Compare the date format
of that locale with the date format on the usage statement for the command.
¦ Check the NetBackup Problems report for clues.
¦ If the error appears in a Java interface, enable the debug print manager in the
Java startup file. Retry and compare the parameters that are logged in the Java
log with the parameters listed in the command’s usage statement.
¦ If these actions do not reveal the problem, create a debug log directory for the
process that returned this status code. Then retry the operation and check the
resulting debug log.

NetBackup status code: 110
Message: Cannot find the NetBackup configuration information
Explanation: On Windows, NetBackup did not read the registry entries that were
created during installation. On UNIX and Linux, the
/usr/openv/netbackup/bp.conf file does not exist.
RecommendedAction: On Windows, reinstall NetBackup software on the client.
On UNIX and Linux, create a /usr/openv/netbackup/bp.conf file with at least
the following lines:
SERVER = server_name
CLIENT_NAME = client_name
