Back up a client NIM from nim master

Hello everyone

Im trying to backup a nim client from nim master but I got this message

COMMAND STATUS

Command: failed stdout: yes stderr: no

Before command completion, additional instructions may appear below.

0042-001 nim: processing error encountered on "master":
0042-006 m_mkbosi: (From_Master) connect Error 0

0042-008 nimsh: Request denied - nim


The ip from both partition are in the /etc/hosts file
I can ping from the master to the client and viceversa

My question is, what else I have to check, some files

Thanks for your comments

Hey

Seems like NIM master is not able to establish a shell to execute its command

I assume you are using communication protocol as "nimsh". you can check that by running the following @ client

grep -i nim_shell /etc/niminfo

Check the status of nimsh daemon @ NIM master & client

# lssrc -s nimsh (if inoperative start it)

Note: If everything if active, I would just delet the /etc/niminfo file from the CLIENT and register the server back..

Hope that helps

if the ip address of the nim client has changed, you may have delete the machine and recreate under nim machine operations.
