Backup jobs do not appear in the Activity monitor of Netbackup however the image cleanup task runs and performs cleanup.

Problem

Any backup job either initialized manually or as per schedule, fails to appear in the Activity Monitor.
The backup seems to run and complete because the cleanup task is seen and completes succesfully.

Cause

Checked and found the bpcompatd deamon to be running

Conform this with command /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bpcompatd -alive
we may see an error "authentication failed"

The "bpcompatd.txt" file was found missing at path /usr/openv/var/vnetd

Compared the files within /usr/openv/var/vnetd folder with a known good installation of Netbackup on another Solaris Master server. Many of the files were either corrupt or missing.

Solution

Copy and replace the entire contents of /vnetd folder from any other working Master server and then restart the NBU services.


Applies To

Netbackup Master server 6.5.3.1 installed on Solaris 10
