Probe job had unrecoverable failure(s), this job is being abandoned.

We upgraded our networker to 7.61, both server and clients.  two of my servers that used to run nsrexeced and do the backup correctly now fail the backup with this error:

Probe job had unrecoverable failure(s), this job is being abandoned on the server side. nothing has been change with the client server's config. and the rest of the servers are woking fine(with the same config) any body knows what this error means and how to remedy it?

thank you in advance

Kathy

Re: Probe job had unrecoverable failure(s), this job is being abandoned.

Try to figure out why probe is failing by running only probe.  Go to client and run following from CLI:

savefs -s <backup_server_name_as_defined_in_NW> -vpn

Above won't do backup - just run probe (which is exactly what fails now) and error should be more clear to get you or us started.

Thank you Hrvoje, for the helpfull command line. I ran the command on two servers, one that is working, and the other that I have problem with. here is the results, I don't get any errors.

Problem server: problem-server.txt

Re: Probe job had unrecoverable failure(s), this job is being abandoned.

the /nsr/res/servers file was pointing to the wrong backup server!
