When the Backup Set Is Browsed on the BAR Page on the NetBackup Client, Error Message invalid command parameter (status 20) Is Displayed

Publication Date:  2015-07-29 Views:  148 Downloads:  0

Issue Description

After files are successfully backed up using the NetBackup, restore the files on the NetBackup Administration Console. Error message invalid command parameter (status 20) is displayed.

Handling Process

Run the date command to set the system date of the NetBackup client to that of the NetBackup master server.


dl380-backup:~ # date 040817072012
Sun Apr  8 17:07:00 CST 2012

04 indicates the month, 08 indicates the date, 17 indicates the hour, 07 indicates the minute, and 2012 indicates the year.

Root Cause

The date is not correctly set on the NetBackup client. The date on the NetBackup client is earlier than that on the NetBackup server. As a result, browsing the backup set fails.

For browsing the backup set using the NetBackup, the default value of the Start date parameter is determined by the start time of the recent successful task on the NetBackup client. However, the default value of the End date parameter is determined by the system date on the NetBackup client.
