Get you last good catalog backup and do a restore, then make sure you
don't fiddle with the Authorization section of the NBU without first
reading and making sure you truly understand what the is going on. It
appears you have successfully restricted everyone from the
administrative feature. In that your jobs are failing, do the recovery
(well documented in the Troubleshooting Guide) and get your data

Subject: [Veritas-bu] Help! Lost access to administrative commands.
I hope somebody can help me. Support is flailing. No help at
I made a few changes via the console GUI and now I don't have
access to any of the admin commands. When I crank up the GUI, all I get
is the Backup, Archive and Restore menu option. I get this whether I'm
at my workstation in my office or on the console.
The processes seem to be up:

Backups are not running. I can see the jobs in the queue. Since
last night, they are failing with status 219.
When I try to get a listing of available media, I get:
<16>bpauthorize main: Function connect_to_remote_server(backup) failed:
cannot connect on socket
You do not have the proper authorization to perform
this task. Please resolve and try again.
Which I think is telling, I just don't know where else to look.
There are server entries in bp.conf for the server and my workstation.
There are entries in /etc/hosts for my workstation and the server.
The setup is pretty simple, one server acting as Master and Media
Server, connected to a robotic library. The system is running RedHat
Can someone point me where to look?
A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
Q: What is the most annoying thing on usenet and in e-mail?
