    Files\Veritas\Netbackup\var\vxss\credentials\
     win_client.company.com
    Name: win_client.company.com

Verify that the authentication client libraries are installed

Run bpnbat -login on the client to verify that the authentication client libraries are installed.

    Authentication port [Enter = default]:
    Authentication type (NIS, NIS+, WINDOWS, vx, unixpwd)
     : NIS
    Domain: min.com
