CTA - Failed to archive backup file

Jump to solution

Hello

I am quite new to CTA, in fact i inherited the system. Could you point me to the right direction about a problem?

I receive the following error:

EMC CTA Alert ID: 701-0005 From Host: hostname/ip - Failed to archive backup file

Additional details:

Oct 19 00:34:40 FileManagementDa(5416){Backup} [15-92-5-106]: (ERROR) Failed to archive backup file "/var/fmbackup/fmbackup_10.0sp2_Mon_19-10-15_00_15.tgz"

What could cause such an error?

Thanks in advance for the help!

Best,

Peter

Hi Peter,

There are multiple causes for this error.

1. Backup configuration in CTA

2. Repository NAME to IP resolution (froward and reverse)

3. NFS permission.

I would suggest you begin with referring to the CTA getting started guide and confirm the configuration first.

Regards,

Vishnu

Hi Vishnu,

Thank you very much for your answer! You were right, the problem was with reverse name resolution.

Thanks again!

Best,

Peter
