We have netbackup 6.5 on a Sun Solaris 9 system that has been running for years, literally. I returned from the holiday weekend to find that it had stopped running. (Nine daemons listed as not running.) The only hint to a possible cause of the problem was an entry in the system logs stating that the partition with the database had filled up over the weekend, but it was below 90% when I checked it..
The nbemm daemon doesn't want to run. When I start it manually, "/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/nbemm", I see the following in the debug log;
13:56:31.940 PID:12595 TID:1 <1> <EMM> - NBEmmSvc::doShouldStart : Should start
13:56:32.480 PID:12602 TID:1 <7> <EMM> - EMMMain : Exception caught attempting EMM orb startup BAD_PARAM
13:56:32.483 PID:12602 TID:1 <2> <EMM> - NBEmmSvc::shutdown_i : Calling shutdown on hosted services
"tpconfig d" returns, after a long wait, "EMM interface initialization failed, status = 77"
As always, the Symantec documentation doesn't seem to be helpful. My suspicion is that the database needs cleaning up, but I can't find anything on how to do that...
