Data Backup and Recovery
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?
See The Solution
I got a patch from Symantec, Etrack/bug ID 2387389 ,
and once applied , the problem was solved 🙂
Ask Symantec for EEB for your platform .

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.
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 ..
Hey thank you for the info. The patch helped 🙂
Update: After installing NBU 126.96.36.199 the error re-occurs. According to Symantec Support there's an EEB for 188.8.131.52 (?!?) but not for .2...Has anyone more info?
Have you tried to apply same patch to 184.108.40.206 ?
Anyway , i think it's better to contact Symantec Support to get a response.
Hi Antonello, yes I have tried it.."wrong version". So, lets contact Symantec again 😞
