About NetBackup for OpenStack debug logging

NetBackup maintains process-specific logs for the various processes that are involved in the backup and restore operations. Examining these logs can help you to find the root cause of an issue.

These log folders must already exist in order for logging to occur. If these folders do not exist, you must create them.

The log folders reside on the following directories

  • On Windows: install_path\NetBackup\logs

  • On UNIX or Linux: /usr/openv/netbackup/logs
