When you did stop & start, did you confirm all NB processes
had ended correctly? (bpps –a)
I have experienced something very similar on a Windows Media/Master
server last week.
Use bprdreq –alive to check if resource processing is
working. I’m guessing it isn’t. In which case you will probably
find you have an orphaned nbdb (bpdbm, i think its called) process. Cant remember
the exact process that was linked to the DB.
-Terminate that outstanding process(es) (kill -9 etc, whatever
-Have your catalogue backup standing by
-Cross your fingers and start NetBackup up
-Dont let the disk system that hosts your NetBackup databases
get full ever again.
