Troubleshooting MSDP catalog backup
The following subsections provide information about MSDP catalog backup and recovery.
Table: MSDP drcontrol codes and messages describes error messages that may occur when you create or update a catalog backup policy. The messages are displayed in the shell window in which you ran the drcontrol utility. The utility also writes the messages to its log file.
Table: MSDP drcontrol codes and messages
Code or message
Fatal error in an operating system or deduplication command that the drcontrol utility calls.
The command cannot find the necessary NetBackup configuration information.
The user who invoked the command does not have administrator privileges.
A command option or argument is required.
The policy name that you specified already exists.
This error code is passed from the NetBackup bplist command. The MSDP catalog backup policy you specified does not exist or no backups exist for the given policy name.
Fatal error in the drcontrol utility.
For more information about status codes and error messages, see the following:
The Troubleshooter in the NetBackup Administration Console.
The NetBackup Status Codes Reference Guide available through the following webpage:
If NetBackup detects corruption in the MSDP catalog, the Deduplication Manager recovers the catalog automatically from the most recent shadow copy. That recovery process also plays a transaction log so that the recovered MSDP catalog is current.
Although the shadow copy recovery process is automatic, a recovery procedure is available if you need to recover from a shadow copy manually.
