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 bug in NTA which occurs in a multi-poller environment where more than one backup is launched simultaneously. FSDB 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 to solve this issue.

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