Table: Errors encountered when you review Status for a newly discovered VM
Error message or cause
Explanation and recommended action
The protection status of a VM indicates that it has not been backed up. However, a backup job that includes the VM has successfully completed.
In the NetBackup web UI, the protection status for a newly discovered VM does not indicate that it is backed up until the next backup of the VM has completed.
In some circumstances, a new VM is backed up before the discovery of that VM has happened, as in the following scenario:
If you encounter a similar situation, you can still browse the recovery points and recover them. However, it is only after another backup of the VM successfully completes that the protection status indicates that the VM has been backed up.
To review the protection status of a newly discovered VM in the NetBackup web UI, Veritas recommends that you wait until the next successful backup has completed. Then, the protection status of the VM should correctly indicate its protection status.
