Below are some of the NetBackup status error codes from Status Code 2086 to Status Code 2090 which may be received while using the Symantec NetBackup tool.
NetBackup status code: 2086
Message: Disk volume cannot be used for more than one copy in the same job
Explanation: Not enough eligible disk volumes are configured for this multiple
Recommended Action: Use the nbdevquery -listdv command to verify that
the expected disk volume is configured. For a multiple copy job, ensure that unique
eligible disk volumes exist for each copy. A multiple copy job cannot target two
copies for the same disk volume.
NetBackup status code: 2087
Message: Media allocation would exceed maximum partially full media limit
Explanation: You cannot run this job because it would exceed configured limit
of maximum partially full media.
Recommended Action: This error may occur with a multiple copy job or a
duplication job. If the problem persists, you may need to increase maximum
partially full media setting on the disk pool.
NetBackup status code: 2088
Message: Cleaning media is not available
Explanation: You cannot run a cleaning job because no cleaning media is
configured for the drive.
RecommendedAction: Add a cleaning volume to the robot containing the drive.
NetBackup status code: 2089
Message: FT client is not running
Explanation: This job requires Fibre Transport, but the Fibre Transport client is
not running on the client that is required for this job.
Recommended Action: Do one or more of the following:
¦ Verify that the Private Branch Exchange (PBX) service is installed and running.
Run the bpps -x command to ensure that pbx_exchange is listed in the
processes that are running.
¦ Verify that the client is configured as a SAN Client. Run the bpclntcmd
-sanclient command to return the current state of the SAN Client.Aresponse
of 0 (zero) indicates that SAN Client is not configured. Rerun the command as
bpclntcmd -sanclient 1.
¦ Verify that the client is not also a media server, master server, orEMMserver.
The SAN Client process runs only on a NetBackup client.
¦ Verify that a valid license for the SAN Client feature resides on the master
server. SAN Client is a separately licensed feature which requires a key called
“SAN Client” on the master server.
¦ Verify that no server entries for the SAN Client exist on the NetBackup master
server. Remove any SERVER=clientname entry in the master server for the
SAN Client. If the master server has the SAN Client listed also as a server, it
may shut down the SAN Client.
¦ Restart theSANClient service. TheSANClient restarts when the server reboots,
but does not automatically restart after you run the bpclntcmd command. To
start the SAN Client service, run the client startup script or use the Service
Manager in Windows.

client. For further information, see the Troubleshooting chapter of the NetBackup
SAN Client and Fibre Transport Guide.
