I'm by no means a NBU expert (still learning, that's why I'm here, so
usual warning apply :)  but with our 3-Way NDMP backups these are the
usual suspects:

   Is ndmpmover running?
   Hostname in the drive specification?
   NDMP specified in the Storage Unit?
   Drive are marked up?
   Robot and tape pass a set_ndmp_attr -verify?

FWIW, ndmpmover needs to communicate with its self on port 10000.  If
set_ndmp_attr -verify works, then I'd think that the network parts are
probably fine and it's possibly something else wacky.  I think that I
typically get 99's when the drives are marked as down (which happens of you
kill ndmpmover first)

This is with NBU 4.5MP6.  I dunno if it's changed much in 5.0 or 5.1.
