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 and provides various features.

Below are some of the NetBackup status error codes from Status Code 193 to Status Code 200 which may be received while using the Symantec NetBackup tool.

NetBackup status code: 193
Message: VxSS authentication is requested but not allowed
Explanation: On one side of a NetBackup network connection, the system requires
VxSS authentication. The system on the other side of the connection is not
configured to use VxSS. VxSS authentication is used with the NetBackup Access
Control feature (NBAC). The connection has been terminated because VxSS
authentication cannot be completed.
Recommended Action: Make sure that both systems are configured to use
NetBackup Access Control VxSS authentication with each other. Or, make sure
that both systems are not configured to use VxSS with each other. The first thing
to check is the Use VxSS Host properties value on each system. If one is configured
for REQUIRED, the other must be configured for REQUIRED or AUTOMATIC. If
one is configured for PROHIBITED, the other must be configured for PROHIBITED
or AUTOMATIC.
See the NetBackup Administrator’s Guide, Volume I, for the following information:
how to set the Access Control-related host properties how to configure a system
to use Access Control.

NetBackup status code: 194
Message: the maximum number of jobs per client is set to 0
Explanation: The NetBackupMaximumjobsperclient global attribute is currently
set to 0. Set the value to 0 to disable backups and archives.
Recommended Action: To enable backups and archives, change the Maximum
jobsperclient value to the wanted nonzero setting. This attribute is on the Global
NetBackup Attributes tab in the Master Server Properties dialog box.
See “Using the Host Properties window to access configuration settings” in the
Troubleshooting Guide.

NetBackup status code: 195
Message: client backup was not attempted
Explanation: A backup job was in the NetBackup scheduler but was not tried.
Recommended Action: Do the following, as appropriate:
¦ Retry the backup either immediately with a manual backup or allow the normal
scheduler retries.
¦ For additional information, check the All Log Entries report. For detailed
troubleshooting information, increase the logging level for the diagnostic and
debug logs for nbpem, nbjm, and nbrb.
Use the vxlogcfg command as explained in the following topic:
See “About unified logging” in the Troubleshooting Guide.
After the next backup try, check the logs.

NetBackup status code: 196
Message: client backup was not attempted because backup window closed
Explanation: Abackup or an archive operation that the backup scheduler queued
was not tried because the backup window was no longer open.
Recommended Action: Do the following, as appropriate:
¦ If possible, change the schedule to extend the backup window for this
combination of policy and schedule so it does not occur again.
¦ If the backup must be run, use the Manual Backup command on the Policy
menu in the Backup Policy Management window to perform the backup.
Manual backups ignore the backup window.

NetBackup status code: 197
Message: the specified schedule does not exist in the specified policy
Explanation: A user backup or archive request specified the exact policy and
schedule to use when a backup is performed. The policy exists but does not contain
the schedule.
¦ On Microsoft Windows and NetWare nontarget clients, you can specify a policy
or schedule on the Backups tab in the NetBackup Client Properties dialog
box. To display this dialog box, start the Backup, Archive, and Restore interface
on the client and select NetBackup Client Properties on the File menu.
¦ On UNIX, Linux, and Macintosh clients, you can specify a policy or schedule
by using the bp.conf options, BPBACKUP_POLICY or BPBACKUP_SCHED.
¦ On NetWare target clients, you can specify a policy or schedule in the bp.ini
file.
Recommended Action: Do the following, as appropriate:
¦ Check the client progress log (if available) to determine the policy and schedule
that were specified.
¦ Check the configuration on the master server to determine if the schedule is
valid for the policy. If the schedule is not valid, either add the schedule to the
policy configuration or specify a valid schedule on the client.

NetBackup status code: 198
Message: no active policies contain schedules of the requested type for this client
Explanation: A user backup or archive was requested, and this client is not in a
policy that has a user backup or archive schedule.
RecommendedAction: Determine if the client is in any policy that has a schedule
of the appropriate type (either user backup or archive).
¦ If the client is in such a policy, check the general policy attributes to verify
that the policy is set to active.
¦ If the client is not in such a policy, do either of the following:
¦ Add a schedule of the appropriate type to an existing policy that has this
client.
¦ Create a new policy that has this client and a schedule of the appropriate
type.

NetBackup status code: 199
Message: operation not allowed during this time period
Explanation: A user backup or archive was requested and this client is not in a
policy that has the following: a user backup or archive schedule with an open
backup window. This error implies that an appropriate policy and schedule
combination exists for this client.
Recommended Action: Determine the policies to which this client belongs that
also have a schedule of the appropriate type (either user backup or archive).
¦ If possible, retry the operation when the backup window is open.
¦ If the backup window is not open during appropriate time periods, adjust a
backup window for a schedule in one of the policies.

NetBackup status code: 200
Message: scheduler found no backups due to run
Explanation: When the NetBackup scheduler process (nbpem) checked the policy
and the schedule configuration, it did not find any clients to back up.
This error may be due to the following:
¦ No backup time windows are open (applies only to full and to incremental
schedules).
¦ Policies are set to inactive.
¦ The clients were recently backed up and are not due for another backup (based
on Frequency setting for the schedules).
¦ Policies do not have any clients.
Recommended Action: Usually, this message can be considered informational
and does not indicate a problem. However, if you suspect a problem, do the
following:
¦ Examine the NetBackup All Log Entries report for any messages in addition
to the one that indicates the scheduler found nothing to do.
¦ Examine the policy configuration for all policies or the specific policy in
question to determine if any of the reasons in the Explanation section apply.
¦ To obtain detailed troubleshooting information, increase the unified logging
level for the diagnostic and debug logs.
Use the vxlogcfg command as explained in the following procedure:
See “About unified logging” in the Troubleshooting Guide.
Retry the operation and check the resulting logs.
