Affected Product Version: Netvault Backup 8.2.2 and 8.5X
Affected Module & Version: Work Station Client
OS Version: Windows and Mac
Application Information: N/A
When the Workstation Client software is not configured in the new 8.2.2 Build 29 you will see an error in the log indicating WCS Configuration invalid
You will see the following error in the logs: WCSERROR: WCS configuration invalid
This issue is resolved in NVBU 8.5. After upgrading the server and clients to 8.5, you should no longer receive this error. If you are unable to upgrade to 8.5, then please perform the following steps:
After the NetVault: Backup Client Software has been successfully installed on the Workstation Client; the Workstation Client must be configured before the NVWC Shadower will start functioning. This configuration can be performed by the enduser or employee or it can be performed by the NVBU Administrator if desired.
To create a mock configuration on the NVWC Scheduler, perform the following steps:
1. Create 2 folders C:\wcstore and C:\wc.
2. Open Start/Programs/NetVault and open the application 'Workstation Client Console'.
3. Enter the values in the fields as in the example wcclientexample.jpg attached in the Attachments part of this solution and click OK.
4. This basically creates a mock configuration. It will not run any shadowing.
For more information on the Work Station Client software package see section 3.1 of the Netvault Backup Work Station Client Users Guide.
