Solution

Veritas engineering is aware of the issue, and a formal resolution is made available with an Emergency Engineering Binary (EEB): ET 4018576.

If you experience this problem, contact Veritas Technical Support to obtain the EEB for NetBackup release 8.2. This EEB is a consolidated EEB and includes all previously added fixes for ET 3992152.

NetBackup plug-in for Nutanix-AHV is required to enable "Hypervisor” policy on NetBackup 8.2, the plugin can be downloaded from SORT/Download Center. 

 

Install the binary on all backup hosts (Linux OS) in the Hypervisor policies that are configured for protecting Nutanix AHV VMs. For example, identify the value of backup_host entry specified at Backup Selection configurations.

 

Note:  

If the VM boot mode is UEFI, you need to manually start the VM post restore. You can do this by using Prism console, the Nutanix command line, or Nutanix AHV APIs. On specific AOS versions, the Prism console does not support modifying UEFI boot order after the VM is created (e.g. 5.10, 5.18, 5.19). In such case, you need to run the command line or AHV API to update the UEFI boot configuration.

 

Example: 

Run the following command from the controller VM.

<acli> vm.update <restored_vm_name> uefi_boot=True
