This just absolutely made my day and the day of the sys admin in charge
of netbackup.


Thanks for posting this.

Subject: SOLUTION - "status 25" errors with Netbackup & Oracle on Linux


Hi List, 


I just thought I'd share this with the group since we just finally
resolved this problem after months of troubleshooting and I couldn't
find anything else posted about it on the Internet, or in Metalink or
Symantec's knowledge base.


If you run multiple backups concurrently to Netbackup from Oracle on
Linux, you may receive intermittent failures with the following error


serverResponse: ERR - server exited with status 25: cannot connect on


The solution we were given from Symantec was to adjust the per_source
parameter in the /etc/xinetd.conf file.  The default was 10 and we have
changed it to UNLIMITED for now, but somewhere in the middle will
probably do the trick just as well.  If you're encountering this
problem, you might also see the following errors in /var/log/messages:


xinetd[4873]: FAIL: vnetd per_source_limit from=<IP address of your
Netbackup server>
