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 ...

updated idea 01 Jul 2015
At present, the regular global "exclude_list" file allows the exclusion of entire mountpoints.  This comes in handy with OES2 machines, when trying to exclude everything under /opt/novell/nss/mnt.  The filesystems under that directory are unable to be backed up b/c they don't hold real data, only an abstraction that is used elsewhere.  If these mountpoints are not excluded, they ...

It would be nice if Netbackup appliance would have a strong disk encryption algorithm with key management as current blowfish 128 bit is obsolete and cannot be used in PCI-DSS environment as I red it.

Please add an enhancement to use AIR type replication of catalog images only. Do not add the overhead of copying the actual backup. Just copy the catalog image to the second Netbackup master, so I can restore from there for DR purposes. Example: Master1 backs up to tape1, sends tape1 to Iron Mountain. AIR catalog of backup to Master2 in DR. I bring tape1 to DR, I can load tape and restore from ...

I have NetBackup 7.6, and I want to review ideas for that. I do not care about Backup Exec, or pretty much any other of the idea categories, with the possible exception of appliances, if I decide to get one. Reviewing, and voting for these ideas is not easy, and what is easy is to forget to check them, and I find out that great ideas languish pages back because I was not aware of them. Who has ...
new known issue 11 Jul 2014
Once Hotfixes 217591 or 218257 are installed to Backup Exec 2014, either manually or via Live update, the BkupInst2014.htm install log file will incorrectly list them as being 'Backup Exec (TM) 2012 Patch... '. This is a display issue in the install log only and will not affect the operation of Backup Exec 2014.
