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 ...

We would like to have VSERVER support in BackupExec for NDMP backups. We always use BackupExec to make backups (via NDMP) from NetApp secondary systems (Vault systems). Since NetApp Clustered DataOntap the default mode is VSERVER but BackupExec does not support this and we have to change the modus to Node mode. With this mode, other NetApp products do not function correctly. So my question is, ...

At present if the backup selection is for example " c:\*"  with multiplexing and multistreaming enbled , it creates seperate child jobs even for the files in the exclude list. This results the jobs for the files in exclude list to fail with error code 90. i believe wildcard resolver should drop the files in the exclude list before generating teh streams.
