Thread: Backup Exec 9.2 OFO problems

  1. Backup Exec 9.2 OFO problems


    Hi,

    BackupExec media server and Remote Agents are in version 9.2.1401.5. The
    OFO option is used to backup open files. Some of the servers have a SAN connection
    and these servers OFO options does not work correctly.

    The media server job log displays the following error:
    Backup Exec developed an error while trying to synchronize the server using
    the Open File Option. The backup will continue without using the open file
    option. Please refer to SYS:\SYSTEM\OFM\OFMNW.LOG for further details.

    And the remote servers OFO-log (SYS:\SYSTEM\OFM\OFMNW.LOG) display the information:
    02007 06 09 00:57:58 Agent requested synchronization.
    12007 06 09 00:58:33 NSS wide synchronization failed
    02007 06 09 00:58:33 Backup Agent Activity Detected
    12007 06 09 00:58:33 System Synchronize Failed
    02007 06 09 03:28:05 Agent requested stop synchronization.
    02007 06 09 03:28:05 Backup Complete
    02007 06 09 03:28:05 System Not Synchronized

    As a result OFO is not working and backup is done without OFO (and fails
    with open files including GroupWise databases).

    Is there a configuration issue with OFO & SAN I am missing?

    BR, Harri

    Start by making these changes:

    1. BESTOP
    2. Edit sys:\system\ofm\ofmnw.cfg:

    VerboseMsgLogging=1
    SyncTimeOut=180
    WriteInactivityPeriod=1

    3. Edit sys:\system\ofmcdm.cfg:

    WriteInactivityPeriod = 0x1
    SyncTimeOut = 0xB4
    VerboseMessageLogging = 0x1

    4. BESTART
