Problem

When starting services on a NetBackup Master Server, errors may be seen that one or more services failed to start, or License validation failed error seen in logging.

Error Message

May 30 08:44:53 nbmaster1 netbackup[19811]: NetBackup Web Management Console started.
May 30 08:44:53 nbmaster1 netbackup[19811]: NetBackup Vault daemon started.
May 30 08:44:53 nbmaster1 netbackup[19811]: NetBackup CloudStore Service Container started.
May 30 08:44:53 nbmaster1 nbvault[20220]: Starting nbvault daemon
May 30 08:44:53 nbmaster1 nbvault[20220]: Vault License validation FAILED. Error=159
May 30 08:44:53 nbmaster1 netbackup[19811]: NetBackup Service Monitor started.
 

Cause

The Master Server does not have a valid license key configured.

Solution

If NetBackup Vault is not used or needed n the environment, the license may never have been configured, and this error can be ignored.

On a Windows Master Server, the NetBackup Vault service can be disabled, so errors will not be seen.
