Resolving a pending action

Use the following procedure to resolve a pending action.

For a pending action, NetBackup determines the cause of the problem and issues instruction to the operator to resolve the problem.

A pending action is similar to a pending request. An asterisk identifies a pending action; the asterisk appears to the left of the request ID.

To resolve a pending action

  1. In the NetBackup Administration Console, expand Media and Device Management > Device Monitor.

  2. If an Enterprise Disk Option license is installed, select the Drives tab.

  3. In the Pending Requests pane, select the pending action.

  4. On the Actions menu, select Display Pending Action.

  5. In the message box that describes the problem, review the list of possible corrective actions. The message box also shows other information, such as user name, recorded media ID, external media IDs, and drive number.

  6. Click OK.

  7. Correct the error condition and either resubmit the request or deny the request.
