On Monday July 7th Symantec announced the release of NetBackup 5230 and 5220 expanded capacity. While this may seem like another product “speeds and feeds” announcement, it is more than that.

Backup Exec 2012 and 2014 offer possibilities to import holidays into the configuration in order to exclude those days from having backup jobs run. Unfortunately, there's no possibility to use wildcards in the import files, which makes the creation of the import file quite difficult. Therefore we've created a tool, that provides a GUI to create such import files. As of today, the tool able to ...

When restoring files using the BAR GUI NetBackup should have the capability to add up the total size of the files we want to restore. We often receive restore request from users and their shares contain hundreds of files, without checking and adding up each file size we often hit disk space issues as the server we're restoring to doesn't contain enough free disk space. Can BAR GUI be amended ...

Hello After a change of the Storage-Server, Master-Server, Policy etc. Netbackup Accelerator creates a new folder for the track-logs and starts a complete full backup. The log-location should not be fixed to any of these Properties. This should be changed, to make it more flexible/adaptable to large backup-environments. best regards Christian

It would be great if there was a BEMCLI cmdlet we could use to duplicate existing backup sets. We could build a list of backup sets programmatically and feed it to the cmdlet. This would be great for, for example, duplicating data from mulitple jobs\policies\devices to a single set of tapes for offsite storage (eg. month-end). Please consider this functionality -  it appears to be missing ...
