SnapCreator 3.4p2 vmware restore error (vmw-00133)

Currently Being Moderated

I recently created a snapcreator configuration to backup a datastore containing 3 VMs.  Backup worked fine (had to cycle the agent on the vSphere server before it would work - not sure why I had to do that), but I receive the following error during the restore process:

 

Scan for unresolved VMFS volumes did not find any entries!

 

On the VC Client I see the following:

Copy file: Invalid datastore path '[snap-0eda0c1a-zESX_SCTST1] SCTST2'.

 

Here is the configuration:

- SnapCreator Server LINUX

- vSphere 4.1

- SC Agent installed on VC server (W2K8)

- FC LUNs (VMFS datastores)

- NetApp FAS3240 DOT 8.0.2P3

 

While watching the process run I see the following:

- Use GUI for restore process

- On VC Client, see VMs are powered off

- See Volume clone created on NetApp and mapped to iGROUP

- VC rescans HBAs

- See datastore 'snap...' show up in inventory

- Get 'Invalid datastore path' error during copy operation

 

Perhaps I have something configured incorrectly... Reading the documentation it indicates this is a VMware issue, but now sure where to go from here.

 

Here is my config file:

 

cat SCTST.conf

#########################################################################################

# Reference previously assigned variables or variables                                  #

# assigned within Snap Creator itself by prepending                                     #

# the variable name with "%".                                                           #

#                                                                                       #

# For example)  If you want to reference a VARIABLE:                                    #

#               BLAH=/usr/local/bin/foo %USER_DEFINED                                   #

# Below is a list of all the built in referenceable variables:                          #

# %SNAP_TYPE - The Snapshot Schedule: daily, monthly, etc                               #

# %SNAP_TIME - An epoch time stamp associated with the snapshot                         #

# %ACTION - Could be -snap,-clone_vol, or -clone_lun, -arch, -list depending on which   #

#           Action you used                                                             #

# %MSG - Used to send the error message to other monitoring tools or email. Can only    #

#        be used with SENDTRAP function                                                 #

# %USER_DEFINED - Pass a user defined argument to the script, a good example would be   #

#                 in order to integrate with a backup application like netbackup,       #

#                 you may need to pass into configuration file the netbackup schedule   #

#                 desired in the case where you have multiple schedules                 #

#   activities to                                                                                                #

#                                                                                                                #

#                                                                                                                #

# SC_AGENT_TIMEOUT - Number, timeout in seconds                                                                  #

#   The implemented client/server architecture uses a timeout mechanism. This means, if the client does not      #

#   respond in the specified interval, the server fails with a timeout message. However, the task on the client  #

#   is left untouched (will not be aborted) and needs further investigation.                                     #

#                                                                                                                #

#   On server with high load or known, long running tasks like own scripts or complex SnapDrive operations       #

#   it might be necessary to extend the timeout and adapt this value on your own needs.                          #

#                                                                                                                #

#   Per default, a timeout of 300 seconds is used.                                                               #

#                                                                                                                #

# SC_AGENT_WATCHDOG_ENABLE - (Y|N)                                                                               #

#   Snap Creator starts a watchdog process while quiescing the database. After the period specified with         #

#   SC_AGENT_UNQUIESCE_TIMEOUT, the database will be brought into normal operation automatically.                #

#                                                                                                                #

# SC_AGENT_UNQUIESCE_TIMEOUT - Number, timeout in seconds                                                        #

#   Time to wait after a database quiesce operation to bring back the database into normal operation mode again. #

#   This is only available in combination with SC_AGENT_WATCHDOG_ENABLE=Y                                        #

#                                                                                                                #

#   Per default, SC_AGENT_TIMEOUT + 5 is used.                                                                   #

### Plugin Module Options ###

#############################

##################################################################################################################################

# APP_NAME - (oracle|db2|mysql|domino|vibe|smsql|sybase|<plugin>) Setting which determines which plug-in is being used.  #

#       Snap Creator has built-in support for the listed applications. A community plug-in can be used or you can configure  #

#       APP_QUIESCE_CMD01, APP_UNQUIESCE_CMD01, and PRE_EXIT_CMD01                                        #

# #

# APP_IGNORE_ERROR - (Y|N) Will cause Snap Creator to not exit when encountering an application error. An error   #

#       message will be sent if SENDTRAP is configured but Snap Creator will not exit. This may be useful if you #

#       are backing up multiple databases and dont want a single database failure to stop the backup              #

# #

# VALIDATE_VOLUMES - (DATA) Snap Creator validates that all volumes where the database resides are in fact part of the backup.       #

#       Currently, there are some limitations. Only NFS is supported and only for db2, maxdb, mysql, and Oracle. #

#       Currently, this option only checks data files only for the above databases. Going forward, support for more data  #

#       types like LOG will be added. #

#                                                                                                                         #

# APP_DEFINED_RESTORE - (Y|N) The normal cli restore insterface will not be shown. Instead the plug-in is responsible for  #

#               handling all restore activities including the restore of the snapshot. The built-in plug-ins do not support #

#               this type of a restore #

# #

# APP_DEFINED_CLONE - (Y|N) The built-in cloning abilities of Snap Creator will be ignored. Instead the plug-in is responsible       #

#               for handling all clone activities including vol or lun clone creation and deletion. The built-in plug-ins do not #

#               support this type of clone. #

# APP_AUTO_DISCOVERY - (Y|N) Similar to APP_DEFINED _RESTORE this parameter allows the plug-in to handle application discovery.      #

#               As with restore the plug-in must handle this operation itself #

# #

# APP_CONF_PERSISTENCY - (Y|N) If APP_AUTO_DISCOVERY is used configuration parameters can be changed dynamically. This setting       #

#               allows any changes to be saved, meaning the configuration file updated dynamically. #

#                                                                                                               #

#       - Set 'APP_NAME=SYBASE'                                                                                 #

#       - If you want to validate configutation then set 'VALIDATE_VOLUMES=DATA,OFFLINE_LOG,EXTERNAL_FILES'     #

#               - DATA - logs and data as resported by sp_helpdb                                                #

#               - OFFLINE_LOG - Dump location, extracted from SYBASE_TRAN_DUMP                                  #

#               - EXTENAL_FILE - Manifest files, extracted from SYBASE_MANIFEST                                 #

#       - If you want to auto discovery storage then set "APP_AUTO_DISCOVERY=Y" as NFS based filer volumes      #

#         which will override the "VOLUMES" option                                                              #

#       - If you want to permanantly update the configuration file with the results of the storage auto         #

#         discovery then set "APP_CONF_PERSISTENCE=Y"                                                           #

#       - If you want to use encrypted password then set "NTAP_PWD_PROTECTION=Y".  NOTE this also sets          #

#         encryption on filer passwords.                                                                        #

#                                                                                                               #

# LOCAL (SYBASE module) SNAP CREATOR CONFIGURATION (internal to the SYBASE module)                              #

#                                                                                                               #

#       - SYBASE_SERVER the sybase dataserver name (-S option on isql)                                          #

#               example: SYBASE_SERVER=p_test                                                                   #

#       - SYBASE_DATABASES the list of databses within the instance to backup.  Format is                       #

#         "DB1:USER:PASSWD;DB2:USER:PASSWD" The master database is added as a matter of course.  If a datbase   #

#         called "+ALL" is used then database autodiscovery will be used and excludes the sybsyntax,            #

#         sybsystemdb, sybsystemprocs and tempdb databases. The password are used are passwd to isql as -P.     #

#         excrypted passwords are supported if NTAP_PWD_PROTECTION is set.                                      #

#               example: SYBASE_DATABASES=DBAtest2:sa/53616c7465645f5f76881b465ca8ce3745c239b60e04351e          #

#       - SYBASE_DATABASES_EXCLUDE allows databases to be excluded if the +ALL construct is used use ';'        #

#         to allow multiple databases to be used.                                                               #

#               example: SYBASE_DATABASES_EXCLUDE=pubs2;test_db1.                                               #

#       - SYBASE_TRAN_DUMP allows post snapshot sybase transaction dump to be performed.  Each database         #

#         requiring a txn dump needs to be specified.  Format is "DB1:PATH;DB2:PATH" where path is a            #

#         diectory.                                                                                             #

#       - SYBASE_TRAN_DUMP_FORMAT Allows the dump naming convention to use sepecified to match site             #

#         specific formats.  Three "keys" can be sepecified, %S = Instance name from SYBASE_SERVER              #

#         %D is datbase from SYBASE_DATABASES and %T is a unique timestamp.  Default format is %S_%D_%T.cmn     #

#               example: SYBASE_TRAN_DUMP_FORMAT=%S_%D_%T.log                                                   #

#       - SYBASE_TRAN_DUMP_COMPRESS Allows native sybase transaction dump compression to be enabled.            #

#               example: SYBASE_TRAN_DUMP_COMPRESS=Y                                                            #

#       - SYBASE_ISQL_CMD defines the path to the "isql" command to use.                                        #

#               example: SYBASE_ISQL_CMD=/opt/sybase/OCS-15_0/bin/isql                                          #

#       - SYBASE the location of the sybase install                                                             #

#               example: SYBASE=/sybase                                                                         #

#       - SYBASE_LOGDIR defines the directory where snap creator logs will be placed                            #

#               example: SYBASE_LOGDIR=/usr/local/ntap/scServer3.3.0/logs                                       #

#       - SYBASE_MANIFEST allows those databases where a manifest file should be created and the location       #

#         where they should be placed.  Needed for database mount to be supported.                              #

#               example: SYBASE_MANIFEST=DBAtest2:/t_inf_nzl_devs/                                              #

#       - SYBASE_MANIFEST_FORMAT Allows the manifest naming convention to use sepecified to match site          #

#         specific formats.  Three "keys" can be sepecified, %S = Instance name from SYBASE_SERVER              #

#         %D is datbase from SYBASE_DATABASES and %T is a unique timestamp which is the same as used for        #

#         snapshot naming.  Default format is %S_%D_%T.manifest                                                 #

#               example: SYBASE_MANIFEST_FORMAT=%S_%D_%T.manifest                                               #

#       - SYBASE_MANIFEST_DELETE allows the manifest to be deleted once the snapshot has been performed.  The   #

#         manifest file should be captured within the snapshot so it is always available with the backup.       #

#               example: SYBASE_MANIFEST_DELETE=Y                                                               #

#                                                                                                               #

  • Re: SnapCreator 3.4p2 vmware restore error (vmw-00133)

    Currently Being Moderated

    To further validate, I created a datastore using the VSC and cloned VMs using the RCU.

     

    I have no issues creating snapshots of the VMs/Volumes, I consistantly get the following error during the restore:

     

    [Wed Nov 16 19:44:19 2011] [nessus:9090(3.4.0.1)] ERROR: [vmw-00079] CopyDatastoreFile() on Datastore zESX_SCTST1 failed: InvalidDatastorePath!

     

    The guide indicates it may be an issue with permissions.  Since this is FCP, and I can easily clone and create additional VMs on this datastore, not sure where to look from here. 

     

    Thanks,

     

    Jerry

      I have done further testing in this environment.  They have multiple clusters.  I created a new datastore on another cluster, cloned VMs, and used SnapCreator to create a VM consistent backup.

       

      Using SnapCreator, I was able to use the 'Restore' feature via the GUI without getting the 'VMW-00079' error.

       

      Any ideas as to why it would work on one cluster/ESX servers, then not the other?  I am assuming this must be an issue with the vSphere config/permissions, but not sure where the descrpancy is.  These systems are all managed by the same VIC.

       

      Any ideas definitely appreciated.

       

      Thanks,

      Hi jerry,

       

      In the config details you have mentioned - "SnapCreator Server LINUX " as SC server.

       

      In SC 3.4p2 vmware plugin is not supported on Linux.It is supported only on Windows.

       

       

      But it supported(Linux and Windows) in current community release i.e 3.5.0c

       

       

      Thanks

      Hari

    I have found that many of the NetApp point and click tools for vmware can be finicky when you get in to really large deployments. You can always do it via the CLI.

     

    vol clone create new_vol_name -s none -b vol_with_snapshot snap_name

    Example: vol clone create test_volume_restore -s none -b test_volume hourly.1

     

    assuming NFS modify the exports if ISCSI or FCP add to initiator group

    Mount it to the ESX host

    remove your old vm from the volume

    import your vm in to inventory from your mounted snapshot

    storage v motion your vm back to the proper volume

    unmount the snap restore volume from esx host

    off line the volume on the filer

    destroy the volume.

      Thanks for the input -

       

      Since we will be working with several systems/datastores the admins prefer the method above leveraging flexclone to import the devices on their DR vCenter systems and validate the VMs prior to full recovery (i.e. S-VM to production datastore).  Since some of these instances have Oracle and they are also applying archive logs this provides the flexibility to ensure the DB is fully recovered to an appropriate recovery point before they S-VM to the production datastore.
