These status codes are returned if a robotic daemon/process was started from the command line and an error occurs. For example, if the administrator executes the following:
and no robots are configured, the following may be returned:
TL8: No robots are configured
These status codes are also logged to the system log. Usually, robotic daemons/processes are not started from the command line, but are started automatically, as needed, when ltid starts.
Below are some of the NetBackup Robotic error code 05 to error code 08 which may be received while using the Symantec NetBackup tool.
Robot Error status code 5
Message: Error in getting process Id
Explanation: A robotic daemon/process was unable to obtain its own process
identifier due to a system call failure.
Recommended Action: Investigate operating system functionality regarding a
process obtaining its own process identifier.
Robot Error status code 6
Message: No devices are configured on the robot
Explanation: Arobotic daemon/process was started, but no drives are configured
for the robot.
RecommendedAction: Some robotic daemons or processes do not run if no drives
are configured for them to manage. Add or reconfigure one or more drives to be
in the associated robot. Then, stop and restart ltid (the Media Manager device
daemon on UNIX and Linux or NetBackup Device Manager service on Windows).
Robot Error status code 7
Message: No robots are configured
Explanation: A robotic daemon/process was started, but no robots of the
associated robot type are configured.
RecommendedAction: Robotic daemons or processes do not run if no robots are
configured for the associated robot type. Add or reconfigure robots, then stop and
restart ltid (the Media Manager device daemon on UNIX and Linux or NetBackup
Device Manager service on Windows).
Robot Error status code 8
Message: No memory available
Explanation: A robotic daemon/process was unable to allocate memory. This
error occurs when insufficient system memory is available. This error could result
from the system being overloaded with too many processes and from insufficient
physical and virtual memory.
RecommendedAction: Free up memory by terminating unneeded processes. Add
more swap space or physical memory.
