NetBackup status code 82: media manager killed by signal


Message: media manager killed by signal

Explanation: Another process or a user terminated the tape manager (bptm) or disk manager (bpdm).

Recommended action: This error should not occur in normal operation. If you want to terminate an active backup, use the NetBackup Activity Monitor.
When backing up a DomainOS client, this error occurs after the server has not received anything on the socket for at least 300 seconds. It causes a client read timeout and breaks the connection.

The bpbkar debug log has an entry similar to the following:
13:22:49 [1347] <16> bpbkar: ERR - Extra output - - ECONNRESETConnection reset by peer (UNIX/errno status)
To resolve the problem, increase the CLIENT_READ_TIMEOUTvalue (in this instance to 900).
