Error backing up SQL databases, Connection Error during Consistency check.
Posted on 2008-10-14
I'm running backup Exec 11d on a Win2k3 server. For the past week I've been getting the following error while trying to backup SQL databases.
An unknown or unexpected database error occurred while attempting a DBCC.
[DBNETLIB][ConnectionRead (recv()).]General network error. Check your network documentation.
This happens during the consistency check and only happens on this server. ( I don't experience it on the other SQL servers.) I've tried restarting the SQL server experiencing these problems to no avail. I've combed the error logs and a connection is established between the backup server and SQL server. About 30-40% through the DBCC the connection error starts to show up. It will process the first 20-30 DBs before I get the dreaded "An unknown or unexpected database error occurred while attempting a DBCC."
It does not stop on a specific database either... The connection error has started on a different DB on each backup iteration.
Any ideas on where to start troubleshooting this problem? I can't find any information on Symantec's website and I haven't applied any updates / changes to the 2 servers....
