Symantec Netbackup Client Connections yes or no
Posted on 2013-01-23
We recently restarted all of our servers and now my backup is now working. I look around in Symantec Netbackup to see if I can spot anything, and I notice under Netbackup Management, under Host Properties, under Clients, that none of the Clients indicate "connected." Shoud they? In just trying to investigate, I clicked on one, and it connected.
So my question may be a simple one, but: Should they all be connected? I have one master and a dozen clients. Connect them all? When I connected, it posted a version number and a "connected" status. Nothing else seemed to change.
Oh, the question I am getting in Netbackup is "All compatible drive paths are down, but media is available, resource request failed (800)."
I checked backup daily but this is my first need to trouble-shoot. Help is greatly appreciated!
