Same locking id for different servers on external NMC

Jump to solution

Experts,

I'm using three networker servers (two production, one test). I'm using an external NMC on a seperate Windows Server. Production is running on AIX.

For licensing purposes I need to get different locking IDs from each of the networker servers.

The NMC shows the same locking id for two different servers. Moreover, our testserver has inherited this locking id from our 1st server (it has only recently been added). The first server has got now a different locking id.

Has anyone else seen similar behaviour? How to overcome this behaviour?

Best regards

Christian

If cluster, make sure you do use NSR_HOSTIDS (or /nsr/res/hostids).

Have you been playing with NSR_HOSTIDS?

There used to be an issue in the past with earlier NW7 code where two (or more) servers on LPAR, but within same physical machine, would get same hostid.  Are these two LPARs on the same box?  If not, did you try to use resources from PRD for TST machines.

Yes, all NetWorker Instances are running on the same Hosts (Clustered).

What puzzles me the most is the fact that the newly added server has got the locking ID from the old one.

We aren't using NSR_HOSTIDS (or /nsr/res/hostids).

$ ls -la /nsr/res/

I know, you said that.  And I said you should start using it.
