Netbackup Important Error Codes


These are the error codes seen in the Netbackup and also these can be seen using command bperror -S -r and in Netbackup troubleshooting guide.


Status Code 0
====================
the requested operation was successfully completed
No problems were detected with the requested operation.

Status Code 1
====================
the requested operation was partially successful
A problem was detected that may require corrective action during the requested operation.

Status Code 2
====================
none of the requested files were backed up
A backup or archive did not back up any of the files in the file list.This status code applies primarily to automatic backups using Lotus Notes or SQL database agents, when all of the backups related to the job have failed. It should not occur for standard file system backups.Open a NetBackup support case (recommended in Symantec document 276903.pdf) if you encounter this error for the following: a UNIX or Windows file system backup, or for database agents other than SQL Server or Lotus Notes.

Status Code 3
====================
valid archive image produced, but no files deleted due to non-fatal problems
The backup portion of the archive command reported problems so the files were not deleted.

Status Code 4
====================
archive file removal failed
The backup portion of the archive completed was successful but the delete failed.

Status Code 5
====================
the restore failed to recover the requested files
Errors caused the restore to fail.

Status Code 6
====================
the backup failed to back up the requested files
Errors caused the user backup to fail.

Status Code 7
====================
the archive failed to back up the requested files
Errors caused the user archive to fail.

Status Code 8
====================
unable to determine the status of rbak
On DomainOS clients, rbak is used to do restores. If rbak does not exit with a status message, NetBackup cannot determine whether the restore worked or not.

Status Code 9
====================
an extension package is needed, but was not installed
A NetBackup extension product is required to perform the requested operation.

Status Code 10
====================
allocation failed
The system memory allocation fails because of insufficient system memory available. A possible cause is that the system is overloaded with too many processes and not enough physical or virtual memory.

Status Code 11
====================
system call failed
A system call has failed. This status code is used for a generic system call failure that does not have its own status code.

Status Code 12
====================
file open failed
An open of a file failed.

Status Code 13
====================
file read failed
A read of a file or socket failed. Possible causes include:
* An I/O error occurred during a read from the file system.
* Read of an incomplete file or a corrupt file.
* Socket read failure. A network problem or a problem with the process that writes to the socket can cause socket read failure.
* A problem specific to NetBackup Snapshot Client (see recommended actions).

Status Code 14
====================
file write failed
A write to a file or socket failed. Possible causes include:
* An I/O error occurred during a write to the file system.
* Write to a socket failed. Cause of this failure: a network problem or a problem with the process that reads from the socket.
* Writing to a full disk partition.

Status Code 15
====================
file close failed
A close of a file or socket failed.

Status Code 16
====================
unimplemented feature
The specified operation is not implemented. This error should not occur through normal use of NetBackup.

Status Code 17
====================
pipe open failed
Occurs in NetBackup client menu and Vault areas.

Status Code 18
====================
pipe close failed
A pipe close failed when one process tries to start a child process.

Status Code 19
====================
getservbyname failed
A call to getservbyname() failed. The getservbyname()function uses the name of the service to find a service entry in the services file. (Or NIS services map on UNIX if it is configured.)

Status Code 20
====================
invalid command parameter
One or more command parameters were not valid. This error can occur when incompatible levels of NetBackup are installed on a master and its media server(s) or client(s). For example, a NetBackup master server has NetBackup 6.5 and the media server or the client has NetBackup 4.5. This error can also occur if the wrong parameters are used when you run a command line.

Status Code 21
====================
socket open failed
A socket was not opened.

Status Code 22
====================
socket close failed
A socket was not closed.

Status Code 23
====================
socket read failed
A read operation from a socket failed.

Status Code 24
====================
socket write failed
A write operation to a socket failed.

Status Code 25
====================
cannot connect on socket
A process that timed out while connecting to another process for a particular operation. This problem can occur in the following situation: when a process tries to connect to the NetBackup request daemon (bprd) or database manager daemon (bpdbm) and the daemon is not running. (On Windows, these daemons are the NetBackup Request Manager and NetBackup Database Manager services.) It can also occur in the following situations: the network or server is heavily loaded and has slow response time or an evaluation license key for NetBackup expired. However, the most common cause of this error is a host name resolution problem. Other possible causes of this error:
* nbjm is unable to connect to bpcd on the media server
* nbpem is unable to connect to nbproxy
* bptm on the media server is unable to connect to nbjm on the master server.These errors are caused either by network connectivity issues or if a required process such as pbx_exchange is not running.

Status Code 26
====================
client/server handshaking failed
A process on the server encountered an error when it communicated with the client. This error indicates that the client and server were able to initiate communications, but encountered difficulties and the communications did not complete. This problem can occur during a backup or a restore.

Status Code 27
====================
child process killed by signal
A child of the process that reported this error was terminated. This error may occur if the backup job was terminated or another error terminated the child process. This problem may also occur if a NetBackup process was terminated through Task Manager or another utility.

Status Code 28
====================
failed trying to fork a process
A fork of a child process failed (on UNIX) or a CreateProcess failed (on Windows). This failure may be due to the following:
* An overloaded system
* Insufficient swap space or physical memory
* Too many processes are running on the system

Status Code 29
====================
failed trying to exec a command
A command was not run. This error can occur because the permissions of the command do not allow it to be run. Or it occurs due to a lack of system resources such as memory and swap space.

Status Code 30
====================
could not get passwd information
Could not get the passwd entry for a user.

Status Code 31
====================
could not set user id for process
Could not set the user ID of a process to the user ID of the requesting user. NetBackup runs client processes as the requesting user.

Status Code 32
====================
could not set group id for process
Could not set the group ID of a process to the requesting user group. NetBackup runs client processes with the group ID of the requesting user.

Status Code 33
====================
failed while trying to send mail
An email notification about backup, archive, or restore results has failed. The email was not sent to the administrator's address as specified by the email global attribute. With a UNIX client, the email was not sent to an email address specified with USEMAIL in the client's bp.conf file.

Status Code 34
====================
failed waiting for child process
A NetBackup process encountered a failure while waiting for a child process to complete.

Status Code 35
====================
cannot make required directory
Could not create a required directory. Possible causes are:
* A process does not have permission to create the directory
* The path to the directory is not valid
* An IO error occurs
* No space is available on the device that contains the directory

Status Code 36
====================
failed trying to allocate memory
Allocation of system memory failed. This error occurs when an insufficient system memory is available. This cause of this error may be that the system is overloaded with too many processes and it does not enough physical and virtual memory.

Status Code 37
====================
operation requested by an invalid server
An invalid media server or Windows NetBackup Remote Administration Console made a request to the NetBackup request daemon (bprd) or NetBackup database manager daemon (bpdbm). On Windows, these daemons are the NetBackup Request Manager and NetBackup Database Manager services.

Status Code 38
====================
could not get group information
Could not get the group entry that describes a UNIX user group.

Status Code 39
====================
client name mismatch
The client used a name in a request to the NetBackup server that did not match the configured name in the policy on the server.

Status Code 40
====================
network connection broken
The connection between the client and the server was broken. This status code can also appear if the connection is broken between the master and the media server during a backup.

Status Code 41
====================
network connection timed out
The server did not receive any information from the client for too long a period of time.

Status Code 42
====================
network read failed
An attempt to read data from a socket failed.

Status Code 43
====================
unexpected message received
The client and the server handshake was not correct.

Status Code 44
====================
network write failed
An attempt to write data to a socket failed.

Status Code 45
====================
request attempted on a non reserved port
An attempt was made to access a client from a non-reserved port.

Status Code 46
====================
server not allowed access
The server tries to access a client, but access is blocked. Possible causes are as follows:
* The server is not listed on the client as a valid server.
* The client was configured to require encrypted backups, but the encryption attribute for the backup policy on the server was not selected.
* The evaluation license for the NetBackup Encryption product has expired on the server, but the NetBackup client was configured to require encrypted backups. As a result, the server attempts to make a non-encrypted backup of the client. Since the client is configured to require encryption, the backup failed.

Status Code 47
====================
host is unreachable
An attempt to connect to another machine failed.

Status Code 48
====================
client hostname could not be found
The system function gethostbyname() failed to find the client's host name.

Status Code 49
====================
client did not start
The client failed to start up correctly.

Status Code 50
====================
client process aborted
The client backup terminated abnormally. For example, this error occurs if a NetBackup master or media server is shut down or rebooted when a backup or restore is in progress.

Status Code 51
====================
timed out waiting for database information
The catalog process did not respond within five minutes.

Status Code 52
====================
timed out waiting for media manager to mount volume
The requested volume was not mounted before the timeout expired. This error can also occur if the volume is a cleaning tape but was not specified as a cleaning tape. Another possible cause: the last available drive has a mount request for a non-backup (such as a restore). Then a backup that requires the same drive is initiated before the mount completes. This error is due to the drive not being reported as busy until the mount completes.

Status Code 53
====================
backup restore manager failed to read the file list
The backup and restore manager (bpbrm) did not read the list of files to back up or restore.

Status Code 54
====================
timed out connecting to client
The server did not complete the connection to the client. The accept system or winsock call timed out after 60 seconds.

Status Code 55
====================
permission denied by client during rcmd
The UNIX client does not have the server's name in its /.rhosts file.

Status Code 56
====================
client's network is unreachable
An error reported that the client could not reach the host (WSAENETUNREACH on Windows or ENETUNREACH on UNIX) when the client performed a system call.

Status Code 57
====================
client connection refused
The client refused a connection on the port number for bpcd. This error can occur because of the following:
* No process listening activity occurs on the bpcd port
* The number of connections to the bpcd port is more than the network subsystem can handle with the listen() call

Status Code 58
====================
can't connect to client
The server was unable to connect to the client.

Status Code 59
====================
access to the client was not allowed
The master or the media server tries to access the client, but the client does not recognize the server as a valid server.

Status Code 60
====================
client cannot read the mount table
The backup process on the client did not read the list of mounted file systems.

Status Code 61
====================
Status code not available.

Status Code 62
====================
Status code not available.

Status Code 63
====================
process was killed by a signal
A kill signal was sent to the client process.

Status Code 64
====================
timed out waiting for the client backup to start
The client did not send a ready message to the server within the allotted time.

Status Code 65
====================
client timed out waiting for the continue message from the media manager
The tape manager, bptm, reported that the media did not load and position within the allotted time.

Status Code 66
====================
client backup failed to receive the CONTINUE BACKUP message
The client bpbkar process did not receive the message from the server that indicates that the server is ready to continue.

Status Code 67
====================
client backup failed to read the file list
The client did not read the list of files to back up.

Status Code 68
====================
client timed out waiting for the file list
The client did not receive the list of files to back up within the allotted time. This list comes from the server.

Status Code 69
====================
invalid filelist specification
The file list from the server had invalid entries.

Status Code 70
====================
an entry in the filelist expanded to too many characters
The wildcards, which were used in one of the file list entries, specified too many files.

Status Code 71
====================
none of the files in the file list exist
The files in the file list did not match any of the files on the client. This error can occur with only one file in the file list and the file cannot be backed up due to an I/O error.

Status Code 72
====================
the client type is incorrect in the configuration database
The policy type attribute in the policy configuration indicates that the client is one type, but the installed software is for another type.

Status Code 73
====================
bpstart_notify failed
The bpstart_notify script returned a nonzero exit code.

Status Code 74
====================
client timed out waiting for bpstart_notify to complete
The bpstart_notify script on the client takes too long.

Status Code 75
====================
client timed out waiting for bpend_notify to complete
The bpend_notify script on the client takes too long.

Status Code 76
====================
client timed out reading file
A fifo was specified in the file list and no data was produced on the fifo within the allotted time.

Status Code 77
====================
execution of the specified system command returned a nonzero status
An immediate command returned a nonzero status.

Status Code 78
====================
afs/dfs command failed
Indicates an AFS vos command failure.

Status Code 79
====================
unsupported image format for the requested database query
Possible causes are that the images to be synthesized were generated as follows: using an ASCII catalog, for a pre-5.0 client, on a pre-5.0 master server. Or one or more of the images to be synthesized was encrypted. These images cannot be synthesized.

Status Code 80
====================
Media Manager device daemon (ltid) is not active
If the server is UNIX, the NetBackup device manager daemon, ltid, is not running. If the server is Windows, the NetBackup Device Manager service is not running.

Status Code 81
====================
Media Manager volume daemon (vmd) is not active
The tape manager (bptm) did not communicate with the NetBackup Volume Manager (vmd). This communication is required for most operations.

Status Code 82
====================
media manager killed by signal
Another process or a user terminated the tape manager (bptm) or disk manager (bpdm).

Status Code 83
====================
media open error
The tape manager (bptm) or disk manager (bpdm) did not open the device or file that the backup or restore must use.

Status Code 84
====================
media write error
The system's device driver returned an I/O error while NetBackup wrote to removable media or a disk file.

Status Code 85
====================
media read error
The system device driver returned an I/O error while NetBackup reads from tape, optical disk, or a disk file.

Status Code 86
====================
media position error
The system's device driver returned an I/O error while NetBackup was positioning media (tape or optical disk).

Status Code 87
====================
media close error
The system's device driver returned an I/O error while NetBackup closed a tape or optical disk.

Status Code 88
====================
Status code not available.

Status Code 89
====================
problems encountered during setup of shared memory
The NetBackup processes use shared memory for some operations. This status is returned when an error is encountered in the initialization of the shared memory by the operating system's APIs.

Status Code 90
====================
media manager received no data for backup image
The tape manager (bptm) or disk manager (bpdm) received no data when it performed a backup, archive, or duplication. This error can occur for incremental backups where no data was backed up because no files have changed.

Status Code 91
====================
fatal NB media database error
The tape manager (bptm) received an error while it read or updated its media catalog.

Status Code 92
====================
media manager detected image that was not in tar format
When you performed a restore, the tape manager (bptm) or disk manager (bpdm) did not find a tar header at the offset it expected.

Status Code 93
====================
media manager found wrong tape in drive
When you load a volume for a backup or restore, the tape manager (bptm) found a volume that loaded without the expected tape header. This error may mean that volumes in a robot are not in the slots that are indicated in the Media and Device Management volume configuration.

Status Code 94
====================
cannot position to correct image
The tape manager (bptm) searched for a backup image to restore but did not find the correct backup ID at the expected position on the volume. This error can indicate a drive hardware problem.

Status Code 95
====================
media id is not assigned to this host in the EMM database
An operation was requested on a media ID for which NetBackup does not have a record assigned to the requesting server. An example of this is using bpmedia to suspend or freeze a media ID that does not exist or is not assigned to the requesting server.

Status Code 96
====================
unable to allocate new media for backup, storage unit has none available
The tape manager (bptm) did not allocate a new volume for backups. This error indicates that the storage unit has no more volumes available in the volume pool for this backup. Note that NetBackup does not change storage units during the backup.

Status Code 97
====================
requested media id is in use, cannot process request
An operation was requested on a media ID that is in use. An example of this operation is the attempt to suspend or freeze a volume while it is in use for a backup or restore.

Status Code 98
====================
error requesting media (tpreq)
The tape manager and optical manager (bptm) received an error when they requested a media mount from the following: the NetBackup Device Manager service (on Windows) or the Media Manager device daemon (ltid) (on UNIX).

Status Code 99
====================
NDMP backup failure
The paths in your NDMP policy file list did not back up successfully.

Status Code 100
====================
system error occurred while processing user command
A system call failure in bparchive, bpbackup, bplist, or bprestore.

Status Code 101
====================
failed opening mail pipe
The process that attempts to send mail did not open the pipe to the server.

Status Code 102
====================
failed closing mail pipe
The process that sends mail could not close the pipe to the server.

Status Code 103
====================
error occurred during initialization, check configuration file
None

Status Code 104
====================
invalid file pathname
None

Status Code 105
====================
file pathname exceeds the maximum length allowed
The path name (built by using the current working directory) exceeds the maximum path length that the system allows.

Status Code 106
====================
invalid file pathname found, cannot process request
One of the file paths to be backed up or archived is not valid.

Status Code 107
====================
Status code not available.

Status Code 108
====================
Status code not available.

Status Code 109
====================
invalid date specified
This error can occur when you run a command on the command line that contains a date option. The format of a date option can vary depending on the locale of the master server.

Status Code 110
====================
Cannot find the NetBackup configuration information
On Windows, NetBackup did not read the registry entries that were created during installation. On UNIX, the /usr/openv/netbackup/bp.conf file does not exist.

Status Code 111
====================
No entry was found in the server list
On UNIX, the SERVER = server_name line is omitted from the bp.conf file. On Windows, the server list contains no entries.

Status Code 112
====================
no files specified in the file list
A restore was requested with no files in the file list.

Status Code 113
====================
Status code not available.

Status Code 114
====================
unimplemented error code
This error should not occur. If nbjm received a negative error number, status 114 is issued.

Status Code 115
====================
Status code not available.

Status Code 116
====================
VxSS authentication failed
On either end of a socket connection, the parties did not mutually authenticate each other.

Status Code 117
====================
VxSS access denied
The user identity that was used to attempt an operation does not have the permissions that are needed to perform the action.

Status Code 118
====================
VxSS authorization failed
NetBackup was unable to complete the authorization check against the Authorization service.

Status Code 119
====================
Status code not available.

Status Code 120
====================
cannot find configuration database record for requested NB database backup
The program that backs up the NetBackup internal catalogs did not find the attributes that indicate which media IDs to use or paths to back up. This error should not occur under normal circumstances.

Status Code 121
====================
no media is defined for the requested NB database backup
When NetBackup attempted to back up its internal catalogs, no media IDs were defined in the catalog backup configuration.

Status Code 122
====================
specified device path does not exist
The NetBackup internal catalogs were backed up in the following manner: by using the bpbackupdb command line and by specifying a device path (on Windows) or a raw device file (on UNIX) that does not exist.

Status Code 123
====================
specified disk path is not a directory
When NetBackup attempted to back up its internal catalogs, the backup attributes were set to dump to a disk. However, the disk file path already exists and is not a directory.

Status Code 124
====================
NB database backup failed, a path was not found or is inaccessible
One or more of the specified paths in the catalog backup configuration were not backed up.

Status Code 125
====================
a NetBackup catalog backup is in progress
Only one NetBackup catalog backup can be active at any given time. Certain operations are not allowed during an online catalog backup. (These include catalog archiving, catalog compression, and expiration of the last copy of an image.)

Status Code 126
====================
NB database backup header is too large, too many paths specified
Too many paths were specified in the NetBackup catalog backup configuration to fit in a fixed-size media header. This error should not occur under normal circumstances.

Status Code 127
====================
specified media or path does not contain a valid NB database backup header
The bprecover command was issued and the media ID specified does not have valid catalog backup data.

Status Code 128
====================
NB database recovery failed, a process has encountered an exceptional condition
In the catalogs that were specified for recovery, one or more cannot be restored. For more detail, refer to the error message that precedes this status code in the output from the bprecover command.

Status Code 129
====================
Disk storage unit is full
As NetBackup writes to the file system for the disk storage unit, runs out of space. Until more file system space is available, images of similar size or larger may fail with this error when written to this disk storage unit.In a scheduled backup job that writes to a storage unit group (which contains this disk storage unit), the following occurs: the NetBackup scheduler requests the storage unit with the greatest available capacity when the job is retried.For the retry, when the scheduler requests the storage unit with the greatest available capacity, note the following:
* A tape storage unit in the storage unit group has preference over any disk storage units since tape storage units usually have more capacity.
* If the storage unit with the most unused capacity is busy, NetBackup skips it. NetBackup then selects an available storage unit with the next largest, unused capacity.
* If the storage unit with the greatest unused capacity is the one that lacked capacity when the job first failed, the scheduler tries it again. That storage unit may have more unused capacity now than it did when the job failed.

Status Code 130
====================
system error occurred
An error occurred that prevents the product from operating in a consistent fashion. This error is usually related to a system call.

Status Code 131
====================
client is not validated to use the server
The client name, as determined from the connection to the server, did not match any client name in the NetBackup configuration. No altnames configuration for this client exists on the master server. A client and server with multiple network connections can encounter this problem in the following situation: the name by which the client is configured is not the one by which its routing tables direct connections to the server.

Status Code 132
====================
user is not validated to use the server from this client
None

Status Code 133
====================
invalid request
One of two explanations exist.
* A request was made that is not recognized. This usually results from different versions of NetBackup software being used together.
* If a client receives this error in response to a list or restore request, then the DISALLOW_CLIENT_LIST_RESTORE or DISALLOW_CLIENT_RESTORE. option exists in the bp.conf file on the following: a UNIX NetBackup server or in the registry on a Windows NetBackup server. These options deny list and restore requests from all NetBackup clients.

Status Code 134
====================
unable to process request because the server resources are busy
Status code 134 is an informational message that indicates that all drives in the storage unit are currently in use. If all drives are in use, NetBackup automatically tries another storage unit. If one is not available, NetBackup re-queues the job with a status of 134 and retries it later.

Status Code 135
====================
client is not validated to perform the requested operation
An alternate client restore was attempted that did not come from the root user (on UNIX) or the administrator (on Windows).

Status Code 136
====================
tir info was pruned from the image file
The TIR information was pruned from one or more of the component (differential or cumulative) backup images being synthesized. This situation arises when the following occurs:
* The most recent backup image for the client is a synthetic full or cumulative backup
* The TIR information from one or more of the component images before the synthetic full (or cumulative) backup is prunedThe TIR information is automatically restored to the image catalog if you do the following: expire the synthetic backup (full or cumulative) image and try to rerun the synthetic backup job for the client. However, the synthetic backup job fails with this error if the TIR restore fails due to bad, missing, or vaulted media or a bad drive.

Status Code 137
====================
Status code not available.

Status Code 138
====================
Status code not available.

Status Code 139
====================
Status code not available.

Status Code 140
====================
user id was not superuser
A user or process that did not have root privileges (on UNIX) or administrator privileges (on Windows) started the process.

Status Code 141
====================
file path specified is not absolute
The file specification must be an absolute path.

Status Code 142
====================
file does not exist
To back up a VxFS file system with Snapshot Client, the VxFS file system on the client must be patched with correct, dynamically linked libraries. If the correct VxFS libraries are not installed, the backup fails with status 142.
* For most snapshot backups, the following message appears in the /usr/openv/netbackup/logs/bpfis log on the client:
09:36:48.299 [527] <32> fs_dev_rt_check: FTL - snapshot method: nbu_snap abort - required VxFS dynamic linked libraries for NetBackup are not installed. Please visit the Veritas support web site, and refer to Technote number 262225 for further information.
* For the backups that run from a FlashBackup policy, the following appears in the /usr/openv/netbackup/logs/bpbkar log on the client:
10:09:56.566 [1146] <32> bpfsmap: FTL - bpfsmap: FlashBackup abort - required VxFS dynamic linked libraries for NetBackup are not installed. Please visit the Veritas support web site, and refer to Technote number 262225 for further information.
10:09:56.571 [1146] <16> bpbkar Exit: ERR - bpbkar FATAL exit status = 142: file does not exist
10:09:56.573 [1146] <4> bpbkar Exit: INF - EXIT STATUS 142: file does not exist

Status Code 143
====================
invalid command protocol
A poorly formed request was made to the NetBackup request daemon (UNIX) or to the Request Manager service (Windows). This error can be due to the following: mismatched versions of the product, corrupted network communication, or to a non-NetBackup process sending data across the port for the daemon or service.

Status Code 144
====================
invalid command usage
This status code is due to a NetBackup process being started with improper options or an incompatibility in the product.

Status Code 145
====================
daemon is already running
Another copy of the process is running.

Status Code 146
====================
cannot get a bound socket
The service or daemon did not bind to its socket. A system call fails when the daemon (UNIX) or service (Windows) attempts to bind to its configured port number. This error is usually caused when another process acquired the port before the daemon or service started.

Status Code 147
====================
required or specified copy was not found
The requested copy number of a backup or an archive image cannot be found.

The process cannot lock its lock file because an error was received from a system call. This lock file synchronizes process activities (for example, it prevents more than one daemon from running at a time).

Status Code 159
====================
licensed use has been exceeded
A configuration limit was exceeded. For example, a job fails with this error code if a policy is set up that specifies the following:
* A storage unit that is on a SAN media server
* A client that is not the SAN media server itselfSAN media servers can only back up themselves.This status code is used when the creation of a storage unit on a SAN media server fails because "On demand only" is not selected. "On demand only" is required for storage units on a SAN media server.

Status Code 160
====================

Status Code 164
====================
unable to mount media because it is in a DOWN, or otherwise not available
A restore was attempted and the volume required for the restore was in a DOWN drive in a robot. Or, the slot is empty that should contain the volume.

Status Code 165
====================
NB image database contains no image fragments for requested backup id/copy number
A restore was attempted and NetBackup has no record of the fragments that are associated with the backup ID that has the files.

Status Code 166
====================
backups are not allowed to span media
An end of media (EOM) was encountered while the backup image was written. The backup was terminated because the NetBackup DISALLOW_BACKUPS_SPANNING_MEDIA option was present in bp.conf (on UNIX) or in the registry (on Windows). The backup is retried automatically with a different volume if the backup tries attribute allows it in the NetBackup global attribute configuration.

Status Code 167
====================
cannot find requested volume pool in EMM database
A backup to a nonrobotic drive was attempted and the tape manager (bptm) cannot find or add the specified volume pool.

Status Code 168
====================
cannot overwrite media, data on it is protected
A catalog backup was attempted to a volume that cannot be overwritten because it contains data that by default NetBackup does not overwrite. (This data includes items such as tar, cpio, and ANSI.)

Status Code 169
====================
media id is either expired or will exceed maximum mounts
A backup or a catalog backup was attempted and the volume selected for use has reached its maximum number of mounts. The maximum number is specified in the Media and Device Management volume configuration. For a regular backup, the volume is automatically set to the SUSPENDED state and not used for further backups. For a NetBackup catalog backup, the operation terminates abnormally.

Status Code 170
====================
third party copy backup failure
Usually indicates a problem with the 3pc. file or the mover.conf file. (For detailed causes, see recommended actions.) For more information on these files, refer to the NetBackup Snapshot Client Configuration online document. For help accessing this document, see "Snapshot Client Assistance" in the NetBackup Snapshot Client Administrator's Guide.

Status Code 171
====================

operation, such as using bpmedia to suspend or freeze a media ID, was attempted and the media ID specified was longer than six alpha-numeric characters

Status Code 172
====================
cannot read media header, may not be NetBackup media or is corrupted
When you loaded a volume for a backup or restore, the tape manager (bptm), did not find the expected tape header. This error can mean that a robotic device volume is not in the slot number that is in the Media and Device Management volume configuration. It also can mean that a read error (I/O error) occurred.

Status Code 173
====================
cannot read backup header, media may be corrupted
When the tape manager (bptm) searches for a backup image to restore, the following occurs: it cannot find the correct backup ID at the position on the media where NetBackup expected it. This status code can indicate a drive hardware problem.

Status Code 174
====================
media manager - system error occurred
An abnormal condition caused a tape manager (bptm) or disk manager (bpdm) failure.

Status Code 175
====================
not all requested files were restored
When the bptm or the bpdm process restores files from an image, it detected a fatal error condition and terminated the restore before it completed. Under normal circumstances, this error should not occur.

Status Code 176
====================
cannot perform specified media import operation
The tape manager (bptm) detected an error condition when it attempted to import a specific backup image. Possible reasons for this error are as follows:
* Media ID is already active in the NetBackup media catalog on this server
* Media ID is not in the volume configuration
* Fatal tape manager (bptm) error occurred
* Total image was not obtained from Phase 1 of import

Status Code 177
====================
could not deassign media due to Media Manager error
The tape manager (bptm) cannot successfully unassign a media ID.

Status Code 178
====================
media id is not in NetBackup volume pool
NetBackup attempted a backup of its catalogs and the media ID that was specified for the catalog backup was not in the NetBackup volume pool. Volumes for catalog backups must be in the NetBackup volume pool.

Status Code 179
====================
density is incorrect for the media id
An operation such as "list contents" was attempted on an invalid media ID, such as a cleaning tape. Another possibility: a media ID in the NetBackup catalog backup configuration does not match the media type that was entered in the volume configuration.

A user backup or archive was requested, and this client is not in a policy that has a user backup or archive schedule.

Status Code 199
====================
operation not allowed during this time period
A user backup or archive was requested and this client is not in a policy that has the following: a user backup or archive schedule with an open backup window. This error implies that an appropriate policy and schedule combination exists for this client.

Status Code 200
====================
scheduler found no backups due to run
When the NetBackup scheduler process (nbpem) checked the policy and the schedule configuration, it did not find any clients to back up. This error may be due to the following:
* No backup time windows are open (applies only to full and to incremental schedules).
* Policies are set to inactive.
* The clients were recently backed up and are not due for another backup (based on Frequency setting for the schedules).
* Policies do not have any clients.
