So strange, tried to post my findings 2 times now, and my point counter increase but the posts are not on the forum... I will reply here then:
 

NBU 7.5B2 Replication Director findings:
 

===================================================

When deleting the Storage Server it does not delete the entry in the EMM database:

C:\Users\Administrator>nbemmcmd -listhost

NBEMMCMD, Version:7.5Beta2

The following hosts were found:

server           nbubeta.arh.demo

master           nbubeta.arh.demo

ndmp             opm.arh.demo

Command completed successfully.

I found out about this because I created the STS with FQDN, but when running bpstsinfo the DFM server recognized itself without domain, so I wanted to change to short name:

C:\Users\Administrator>bpstsinfo -serverinfo -storage_server opm.arh.demo -stype

 Network_NTAP

Server Info:

        Server Name: Network_NTAP:opm

        Supported Stream Formats:

        [

        ]

        Server Flags: (STS_SRV_CRED | STS_SRV_EVSYNC)

        Maximum Connections: 32

        Current Connections: 1

        Supported Interfaces:

        [

        ]

        Supported Credentials:

        [

        ]

When creating a new STS with the shortname nothing happened, the STS was not created (probably because an entry already existed for this server with FQDN). I deleted the entry manually in the EMM, and ran the wizard again, this time using short name, and now it works:

C:\Users\Administrator>nbemmcmd -listh

NBEMMCMD, Version:7.5Beta2

The following hosts were found:

server           nbubeta.arh.demo

master           nbubeta.arh.demo

ndmp             opm

Command completed successfully.

===================================================

Manual page 94, step 8 “Clients tab” suggest “Select the Clients tab and specify the local mount point on the client. UNC

paths.”, should be "client hostname"?

===================================================

Manual page 128, “Change the logon to the Administrator account and restart the service” suggesting to use the administrator account, is that a good idea?

===================================================

When adding a Windows 2008R2 client to a policy, it is auto-recognized as WindowsVista OS.

===================================================

Did you restore something today?

Morten,

Thank you.  You should open a case for the issues you have found in case we need to follow up for more information in order to replicate the issue.

Regards,

Tony
