Introduction It is quite common to have different views on backups between DBAs and Netbackup admins. DBAs want to be sure that backups are being performed correctly and often prefer to make backups to disk with their own tools and after that Netbackup will do a backup to another repository to ensure backups lifecycle. However, this double copy has several problems: There is no ...

One of the more complicated facets of NetBackup is that the 'copy number' of a backup image bears no relation to its locality/residence/age or duplication life history. The copy number of a backup image is an arbitary number, and does not convey any meaning other than the fact that a copy of the image exists. For example, imagine an SLP that has two stages.  The first stage ...

Some forum posters are unable to post even fragments of, let alone complete, raw log files for NetBackup. If a poster takes a copy of the attached script and places it on their desktop they will then be able to drag'n'drop log files onto the script icon, and then the script will create a copy of the log file, but with all of the pre-configured sensitive text replaced, and place the ...

A Migration tool which will do migrations from one Backup Exec server to another. It should be compatible with similar versions of Backup Exec like 2012 - 15, I would understand 2010 - 15 would be asking much.  It should not be expected to do dirty work copying directories to and fro servers, then need to edit the SQL Database to change the Server name, it seems rediculous. There should ...

Please could you make in configurable to Setup a Separate Event Log for Backup Exec to use, rather than dumping this straight into the Application Event Log. Monitoring Teams prefer this as to more accurately monitor rather than trying to filter through a General log like the Application Log in Event Viewer.
