We are using Backup Exec 15 and all backups are working perfect except two; our two Sharepoint servers. one WSS 3.0 (Windows Server 2003) and one Sharepoint 2013 Foundation (Windows Server 2008 R2).  Once in a while a backup will succeed without errors/warnings but in 9 times out of 10 (for borth servers) the job fails with the following errors as below.

Hi - hopefully some will find this useful. It's an attempt at a tidier, and more readable backup_exit_notify script, and thus hopefully also more easily maintained. FYI - NetBackup enmbedded 'scripts' such as this are overwritten by upgrades and patches, so... it is usually a good idea to keep a copy of your site specific scripts in another location - and to add steps to your upgrade/patch ...

Hope this helps others. Please read the notes at the top of the script before using - as it needs to reside in path which does not have spaces at any point in the folder path specification. The script will detect where the NetBackup binaries are installed, and will detect the output path of the nbdeployutil --gather stage and use this as input into the two nbdeployutil reporting stages. The ...

Think it would be a good idea, if the number of CPUs used by the OpsCenter db was set to the number CPUs in the server at installation. Think it would give a better performance and thereby experience of OpsCenter
new idea 24 Jul 2015
Think would be a good idea to have the cache/heap sizes in OpsCenter set for the recommended RAM size on installation. Or even better for the actual amount of RAM at installation. Think it would give a better performance and thereby experience of OpsCenter.

The current setup on NBU 7.6.1.2 and all earlier versions applicable, is such that if you use Oracle Intelligent Policy (OIP), the default security settings of BKUP_IMAGE_PERM=USER are given. Inorder to control or change the default BKUP_IMAGE_PERM=USER/ANY/GROUP setting, one has to rivert back to client scripts and not through OIP.  Cases arise where restoration is on a different ...
