Re: bpcd cannot be started

Shalom,

netbackup requires good /etc/hosts networking to work right.

You have checked /etc/services and inetd.

Try this:
restart inetd

Check what the error code bind(13782) failed: 226 means with netbackup.

Re: bpcd cannot be started

errno 226 = EADDRINUSE /* Address already in use */

[EADDRINUSE] Address already in use. Only one usage of each address
is normally permitted.

could this be down to another process using the port ? Perhaps use lsof to check see http://forums11.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?threadId=805952
