NDMP three-way backup fails with 84 error on NetBackup 7.1

Hi

I'm experiencing a strange behaviour, in a backup job

using NetBackup 7.1 and two Netapp filers with Data Ontap 7.3.4 .

When the netbackup job is writing the final TIR data , there is a mismatch in block count check

and the job fails with the error:

"

Error bptm (pid=8086) FREEZING media id IS0206, too many data blocks written, check tape/driver block size configuration

Info bptm (pid=8086) EXITING with status 84 <----------"

this happens only in 3-way NDMP backups  between 7.3.4 Data Ontap Netapp filers driven by NetBackup Enterprise Server 7.1 release.

Have you ever seen something similar?

Thanks

Hi Antonello,

we have the same problem..still unsolved. Had a case open at Symantec but after 1 month of sending logfile after logfile without any clue about the source of the problem I closed it. I am glad its not only me experiencing this...

Hope to get some help here.

Hi Michael

No way to solve the problem both by Netapp and Symantec side,

i simply reconfigured backup policies to prevent that combination,

there's no way to make it working at the moment;

unfortunately, i don't think there will be a fix for this ..

Hi 

I got a patch from Symantec, Etrack/bug ID  2387389 ,

and once applied , the problem was solved :-)

Ask Symantec for EEB for your platform .

Update: After installing NBU 7.1.0.2 the error re-occurs. According to Symantec Support there's an EEB for 7.1.0.3 (?!?) but not for .2...Has anyone more info?

Thanks

Hi Michael

Have you tried to apply same patch to 7.1.0.2 ?

Anyway , i think it's better to contact Symantec Support to get a response.
