Home > Success Center > Netflow Traffic Analyzer (NTA) > ERROR: Scheduled NTA Flow Storage database backup failed

ERROR: Scheduled NTA Flow Storage database backup failed


Information Bar displays the following error message even if the Flow Storage Database (FSDB) nightly backups are done properly:

Scheduled NTA Flow Storage database backup failed


NTA 4.0


This is a known issue in NTA which occurs in a multi-poller environment where more than one backup is launched simultaneously. The Flow Storage Database displays this info bar message if a second backup is launched simultaneously when the first backup is still running. The logs show that all backups have completed successfully. But the info bar message stays on the Web Console even if the backups finish successfully, and thus misguides the user.


This problem is rectified in NTA 4.1. Please upgrade to version 4.1 or higher to solve this issue.

If already on version 4.1, stop the Orion services, run the NTA Configuration wizard, and then restart Orion services.
