Veritas Netbackup error "The Netbackup host specified is invalid or does not exist"

I am getting the error message when using jnbSA script to launch Veritas Netbackup on Solaris

 "The Netbackup host specified is invalid or does not exist"

I am able to use xbp and xbpadm and other command line utilities.
I checked up in auth.conf file and once I launch jnbSA script by dafault it is picking the correct server name in Hostname field.

Not sure whether this is some configuration issue with my Solaris Operating System or some configuration changes needs to be done on Veritas Netbackup side.

Please advise.

Thanks,

For security purposes, Netbackup is very particular about host names. Try configuring the host name inside netbackup with the fully qualified name.

Which name resolution protocol are you using. Make sure that you can resolve the host name on the netbackup server.

Is the host running the correct Netbackup client software.

did u put the server name correctly to NDMP host name.
try putting ipaddress of the host, instead of putting just host name.
