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 206 to Status Code 210 which may be received while using the Symantec NetBackup tool.

NetBackup status code: 206
Message: access to server backup restore manager denied
Explanation: The master server tries to start a process on another server (or
itself) but does not appear in the NetBackup server list on that server. On a UNIX
or Linux server, the master is the first SERVER entry in the bp.conf file. On a
Windows server, the master is designated on the Servers tab in the MasterServer
Properties dialog box.
See “Using the Host Properties window to access configuration settings” in the
Troubleshooting Guide.
Recommended Action: Do the following, as appropriate:
¦ Verify that the master server appears as a server in its own server list as well
as being listed on all media servers.
If you change the server list on a master server, stop and restart the NetBackup
database manager and request the following: daemons (UNIX and Linux) or
the NetBackup Database Manager and NetBackup Request Manager services
(Windows).
¦ If necessary, create debug log directories for bprd and retry the operation.
Then, check the resulting debug logs on the master server:
¦ If the error occurred during a backup operation, check the nbpem, nbjm, and
nbrb logs by using the vxlogview command.
¦ If the error occurred during a restore operation, check the bprd debug logs.

NetBackup status code: 207
Message: error obtaining date of last backup for client
Explanation: Whennbpem tries to obtain the date of the last backup for a particular
client, policy, and schedule combination, an error occurs.
Recommended Action: Do the following, as appropriate:
¦ Verify that the NetBackup database manager (bpdbm) process (on UNIX and
Linux) or the NetBackup Database Manager service (on Windows) is running.
¦ Examine the All Log Entries report for the appropriate time frame to gather
more information about the failure.
¦ For detailed troubleshooting information, create a bpdbm log directory on the
master server. Increase the logging level for the diagnostic and debug logs for
nbpem.
Use the vxlogcfg command as explained in the following topic:
See “About unified logging” in the Troubleshooting Guide.
Retry the operation, then check the resulting logs.

NetBackup status code: 209
Message: error creating or getting message queue
Explanation: Whena NetBackup process tries to create an internal message queue
construct for inter-process communication, an error occurs. This error indicates
a problem on the master server. On UNIX and Linux systems, this error may be
due to a lack of system resources for System V inter-process communication.
Recommended Action: Create debug log directories on the master server and
retry the operation. Then, determine the type of system failure by examining the
logs. Start with the bprd debug log.
On UNIX and Linux servers, also gather the output of the ipcs -a command to
see what system resources are currently in use.

NetBackup status code: 210
Message: error receiving information on message queue
Explanation: When a NetBackup process tries to receive a message from a
NetBackup daemon using bprd on an internal message queue construct, an error
occurs. This error indicates a problem on the master server. On UNIX and Linux
systems, this error may be due to a lack of system resources for System V
inter-process communication.
Recommended Action: Create debug log directories on the master server and
retry the operation. Then, determine the type of system failure by examining the
logs. Start with the bprd debug log.
On UNIX and Linux servers, also gather the output of the ipcs -a command to
see what system resources are currently in use.
