No more details is given through that command. Any ideas we can do? Thanks.

I found a similar thread but it doesn't help a lot.



Hi Brian,

     If I remember correctly, your OCUM server is running on Windows ? I think you may be a victim of bug 551560. Pls contact NetApp Global Support.

BTW during this schedule job how many concurrent protection jobs are in progress ?  What is the CPU and Memory Configuration of your OCUM server ?




Thanks Adai. It is for windows and we only found 95 concurrent jobs at that moment, including the failed 2. The server is actually virtualised one with 4 core-in-1 3GHz Xeon CPU -  and 16GB of memory.


Hi Brian,

     Some windows memory heap size needs to be modified to avoid such job termination. Contact the support they should help you change this value.
