Netware client RPC error

I have a Netware backup client running v6.5 SP8 and Networker client 7.21 and the savegroup completion message is showing this message, but the backup completes.

SAVE.NLM: RPC error: RPC send operation failed.  A network connection could not be established with the host.

should I be worried or not? or do I need to fix something?

Backup server is Red Hat Linux 5.8 and Netwoker server v7.6.3.3

thanks in advance

Re: Netware client RPC error

Hi,

You should have a look in the media database to see if the backup was successful and everything is as you expect:

mminfo -q client=[client_name_here] -r ssid,name,level,savetime,ssflags,sumflags,totalsize

If you are still unsure, you can test by doing a 'dummy recover' to see what's in the saveset:

- recover -s [nw_server_name_here] -n -S [ssid_here] > dummy_recover 2>&1 

- this will not recover any data but will output to the file what would have been recovered by a recover of the entire saveset
