About support limitations for NetBackup cloud storage
The following items are some of the limitations of NetBackup cloud storage:
The cloud vendors do not support optimized duplication.
The cloud vendors do not support direct to tape (by NDMP).
The cloud vendors do not support disk volume spanning of backup images.
If the NetBackup master server is installed on a platform that NetBackup cloud does not support, you may observe issues in cloud storage server configuration.
For the operating systems that NetBackup supports for cloud storage, see the NetBackup operating system compatibility list available through the following URL:
For Hitachi cloud storage, synthetic backups are not successful if you enabled the encryption option. To run the synthetic backups successfully, you need to enable the versioning option for buckets (or namespaces) through the Hitachi cloud portal. For more details on how to enable the versioning option, contact your Hitachi cloud provider.
Cloud storage servers cannot use the same volume (bucket or container) to store data. You should create a separate volume (bucket or container) for each cloud storage server.
NetBackup 7.7.1 and later versions support configuring cloud storage using the Frankfurt region.
In the NetBackup Cloud Storage Configuration wizard, the following items are displayed only in the English language:
All the cloud provider names.
Description of the cloud providers.
In case of AmazonGov, the following fields: Certificate File Name, Private Key File Name, Private Key Passphrase, Agency, Mission Name, and Role.

NetBackup now supports IPv6. The support is available only with all the cloud vendors and proxy server types that support IPv6.
