Login fails after any change in the server IP address

Login from WebUI fails after any change in the NetVault Backup Server IP address.

When you try to log in, the NetVault Backup WebUI displays a message that the server is not accessible.

After any change in the IP address of the NetVault Backup Server (for example, due to reassignment at reboot by DHCP), you must clear the browser cache before logging in to the NetVault Backup WebUI. Otherwise, the login may fail with a message that the server is not accessible. Alternatively, you can assign a static IP address to the NetVault Backup Server.

Unexpected behavior of NetVault Backup WebUI

NetVault Backup WebUI displays improper strings or names and other object-related issues on any browser.

NetVault Backup WebUI behaves unexpectedly displaying various improper names, strings, incorrect button labels, and so on.

To resolve the issue, clear the browser cache and history and then login again to the NetVault Backup WebUI. Perform this activity after you upgrade your NetVault Backup system.

WebUI does not run in Compatibility View in Internet Explorer

The NetVault Backup WebUI does not run in Compatibility View in Internet Explorer.

If Compatibility View is enabled for the site in Internet Explorer, the following error message is displayed when you try to access NetVault Backup: “Compatibility view is not supported. Use a different browser or remove this site from the list of websites using Compatibility View to properly view the application.”

Remove the site from the list of websites using Compatibility View or use a different browser.

NetVault Backup installer fails during push installation

Push installation fails for a target client.

The following error message appears in the task log:

NetVault Backup installer for the core package failed with error 1.

There are several reasons why an installation can fail. The information in the installation log file can help you diagnose and troubleshoot the issue. You can find the log file in the system temporary directory. (The TEMP environment variable for system account determines the location of this directory; this path is typically set to %windir%\Temp.)

Depending on the stage at which the installation process fails, the installer may create a file named netvault_{GUID}_install.log or bitrock_installer.log (or bitrock_installer_nnn.log).

If you are unable to resolve the issue, contact Quest Technical Support.
