One of our BCS customer, BBVA is requesting is a feature similar to “TSM Collocation” or “TSM Tape Reclamation”, the idea is that NetBackup automatically duplicates images or fragments from tapes that are nearly empty (For example, with less than the 20% of occupation) to other tapes with the goal of having more empty tapes. It would be desirable if customer could:
Configure an schedule to tell NetBackup when these duplications must be performed
i have been come accross this situation and hope most of the netbackup admin too... at least once,i belive many times...
being a netbackup admins we always do the Restore and the general and regular question that we face from the customer is about the restore ETA.( how much time does it take to compleate the restore, most of the times if the restore is critial), when netbackup admin face this question.. the very first though that he get is... how much of data that ...

It would be nice to have a list of known and confirmed bugs that Symantec support knows with a plan to fix it and maybe voting system (like in ideas) that we may vote what should be fixed first.
With a bug there should be also ETA for a fix (in what release it will be fixed).
Sometimes there is a known problem and even whitepapers available but only for internal use and it would be handy to be able to seek and reference something when calling support (obviously I'm not expecting that some ...

In BE 2012, exclude dates are on a server level, i.e. they apply to all scheduled jobs. The inability to exclude dates for individual jobs is a serious set-back and would mean that we now CANNOT stop scheduled jobs from running during holidays.
Suppose I have JobA and JobB scheduled to start at 10 p.m. and 2 a.m. respectively. These are daily backup jobs and I do not want them to run on holidays because there is nobody in the office and no updates are done. If a holiday ...

The functionality within backup exec 2012 for creating backup jobs for more than one server has disappeared.
Before in backup exec 2010 you could backup two servers in one job to one tape. Now the software creates a job for each server and you have to set it to append to the tape as to be careful not to erase the first server you have just backed up. Which means before you could have 20 servers in 10 jobs. Now you need 20 jobs for the 20 servers

We just implement Netbackup on our systems. We noticed the confusion in the Activity Monitor. Perhaps you can see the jobs that belong to group. This would greatly simplify our business. You could link the dependent jobs. Or the policies represent a single job. This job can then be extended via a click on the entry and receives the individual streams.
Here is an example:

Hello, it appears a icon glossary document isnt available publically for BE2012 unlike previous versions, is it possible this could be made available if such a document exists. Guessing one exists for internal purposes.
Although any media /drive density type can be used agaisnt any media type the current offerings of densities are now very out of date, and not consistent.
For example, we have 4mm and DLT types available, but all x6 LTO drives have to be covered with just x3 hcart densities.
Although any density can be used against any drive, it would be neater if the hcart type could at the very least match the LTO drive type.
hcart - LTO
hcart4 - LTO4
Even better would be to have density ...
When using the Java Admin Console, I would like to define and retain saved activity views and filters - for example:
Defined "operator view" of activity monitor - so there is consistancy of what columns are displayed.
Defined sorts/filters - so I can select a filter to show all jobs with errors greater than 1, by start time and see bad jobs
Then select a filter to show Jobs not Done, sorted by start time
If these stored options were available centrally, I could define views and ...
