Problem Migrating NetBackup Catalog data from DataDomain to Altavault


Hi all,


We are in the process of converting from Data Domain to AltaVault.  I am trying to duplicate the catalog (copy 3) to the AltaVault and then make them the primary copies and the expire copy 1 from the Data Domains. 


Here is the job command I am running:


D:\Veritas\NetBackup\bin\admincmd>bpduplicate -Bidfile D:\Veritas\NetBackup\bin\admincmd\Temp\bpidfile_dd160-xxxxx.txt -dstunit nbu-xxxxxxx-ddmigration-su -dp NetBackup -L D:\Veritas\NetBackup\bin\admincmd\Temp\dd160-xxxxx_log.txt



The bpidfile looks like this and seems to feed into NetBackup fine:





Here is the error messages I am getting:


09/03/2016 12:25:03 - Critical bptm (pid=976) image write failed: error 2060016: operation not supported
09/03/2016 12:25:05 - Error bpduplicate (pid=8904) write host media write error (84)
09/03/2016 12:25:05 - Error bpduplicate (pid=8904) Duplicate of backupid xxxxx.xxxxxxxxxx.com_1451185204 failed, media write error (84).
09/03/2016 12:25:05 - Info bptm (pid=976) EXITING with status 84 <----------
09/03/2016 12:25:05 - Error bpduplicate (pid=8904) Status = no images were successfully processed.


Is this a permissions problem / error from the AltaVault?  I am running NetBackup as a service account on the Master and Media serves.


The only thing I can think of is that the Master server is trying to complete the commands, but it is not an allowed media server to the storage unit. I am assuming this is the issue.  I It's been a long time since I had to migrate catalog data to a new system.







Try to change SAN zoning configuration of the Data Domain VTL so Symantec NetBackup could run bpverify and bpduplicate against the tapes directly instead of going through the storage controller via NDMP.
