The client name passed to backup_exit_notify script at the end of a backup job can be incorrect for VMWare Intelligent Policy (VIP) backup policy jobs. Instead of the name of the VM being backed up, the VMWare Backup Host name is passed to backup_exit_notify script.
The formal resolution to this issue (Etrack 2525045) is available in the following release:
- NetBackup 7.1 Maintenance Release 3 (220.127.116.11)
More information on NetBackup 18.104.22.168 is available in the Related Article linked below.
The CLIENT in the backup_exit notify for a VMware Intelligent Policy is the media server name when we need the Virtual machine name.
