NetBackup and ESX host backups

Jump to solution

We are running NetBackup 5.1 MP6 on a Windows 2003 server. We have a policy set up to backup the service console side of our ESX 3.0.1 hosts. Usually once a night we have at least one of our ESX backups that may have more than one attempt before the backup either successfully runs or fails.

Typically when we see the multiple attempts the first attempt has failed with a "client/server handshaking failed(26)" message. We have been working with Symantec/Veritas on this issue with not much luck to this point.

Has anyone else seen this issue? How did you resolve it?

Thanks for any help.

Hi,

Do you have to configure your ESX firewall in order to open the ports used by Netbackup?
