  1. Re-Installing Backup Exec 9


    Upon running the reinstall, I get the message:
    "Backup Exec is currently running on the server"
    during the installation, and I've run bestop.ncf. It appears all modules
    in the bkupexec\nlms directory are unloaded. Does anyone have a list of
    modules I can try to manually unload to start the installation? Maybe the
    JAVA modules are still loaded?

    Upon trying to remove, found Java modules are still loaded. Any way to remove
    these without downing the server?

  3. Re: Re-Installing Backup Exec 9

    java -killall at the console prompt. Of course, if you have any other
    services running that require Java they will also cease to work. Do
    java -showall to see which java modules are currently loaded on the server.

    I had the same problem, but the solution is simple, rename or remove the
    sys\backupexec direstory, and rename or remove the bestart.ncf bestop.ncf
    and bestartj.ncf. Than run install again and it will be ok. Worked with me
    at least.

    JAVA -SHOW lists the java processes and each one has a process id - PID. Find
    the veritas one and note its PID. Then do JAVA -KILL. THat wont kill
    every java process you have running (like your web stuff).

    In my case it didnt help. I even unloaded Java on that server, and still got
    the same message. Only after I did what I already wrote in the previous post,
    namely delete/rename the backupexec direstory on the sys volume, the installation
    went smoothly.
