Can NetWorker temporary files under /nsr/tmp be deleted?
During NetWorker operations, there may be some residual information that was left in the NetWorker temporary directory as a result of an improper shutdown of NetWorker. The information left in this directory may impact the operations of a NetWorker server if not removed.
The temporary files under
/nsr/temp (Solaris, UNIX and Linux) or
\nsr\temp (Windows) folder can be deleted with following procedure:
- Make sure no backups or restores are in progress on the NetWorker server
- Stop NetWorker daemons (UNIX, Linix) or Stop NetWorker Services (Windows)
- Delete all files under
\nsr\tempfolder but leave the sec folder as it is
- Start NetWorker Daemons (UNIX, Linux) or Start NetWorker services (Windows)
