Solstice Backup Problem

Posted on 2004-08-16

Hi,

I am using Solstice Backup 5 on a Sun E450 running Solaris 2.6.

When I run /usr/bin/nsr/nwadmin I get an error saying that the "No
nsrhost found in host table", but the networker window opens, only to show
me a message No Server found. I dont know what to do. I am using the
backup server for 8 clients.

Any suggestions?

thanks in advance,

Mark

Is this machine supposed to be both the Networker server and client? If so adding nsrhost as an alias in /etc/hosts, something like:

127.0.0.1      localhost
123.4.5.6      this-system.this-domain.tld this-system nsrhost

should solve that problem.

You are correct but I can still select my server in the GUI and it is still not seeing it for some reason.

Is the server actually running? What does 'ps -ef | grep nsr | grep -v grep' show?

That would say to me that networker isn't running. There should be a number of other tasks if it were.

Assuming that Solstice Single server is properly set up on this box you can try restarting the server with '/etc/init.d/networker start'. Then re-check the process list for nsr... things and re-try nwadmin.

I found the solution to my problem.  I had corrupt indexes and needed to recreate the indexes

To create new indexes, perform the following tasks:

   1. Shut down Networker.

   2. Rename the corrupt client indexes or the media mmvol indexes.

      For example:

     mv /nsr/index/client1/db /nsr/index/client/db.old
     mv /nsr/mm/mmvolume /nsr/mm/mmvolume.old

   3. Restart Networker.

   4. Run nsrck -c clientname to create new empty client indexes. The media index will automatically be created.

   5. Continue with the backup.

Administrator,  please close this question.

Thanks,

Mark
