Yes, we were getting "status 58" errors too, e.g.:

05:32:42.641 [20671] <16> serverResponse: ERR - server exited with status 58: can't connect to client

  • so far no more of those either since changing per_source, but we just changed it yesterday afternoon so still monitoring.

This is Oracle on 64-bit Oracle Enterprise Linux 5.2 (kernel 2.6.18-92.el5) with Veritas NetBackup for Oracle - Release 6.5 (2007111606).

There is also another cause of these "status 25" errors that we already resolved by increasing the TcpTimedWaitDelay parameter on the Netbackup server side as documented here: This fixed the problem for all of our other Netbackup clients - it was only this cluster of OEL5 boxes that continued to have problems until we increased the per_source parameter. I think the default of this parameter may have changed from UNLIMITED in RHEL/OEL 4 to 10 in RHEL/OEL 5.

Interesting - we have had a similar intermittent error for some time.

I find it much more prevalent on 5.1 clients than on 6.0 clients.

There could be other factors, linux/oracle version, etc.

Did you see any "Error 58 can't connect to client" at the master server?
