Backup software not only secures and protects your data, but it must also safeguard its own operating data. For Backup Exec, some sensitive data such as logon credentials, device passwords and data encryption keys are persisted in the Backup Exec Database. It is of the utmost importance that these are protected from unauthorized access. The Backup Exec Database and the ...

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 ...
updated download 15 May 2015
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 ...
new download 13 Apr 2015
Hi, Please ensure that you read the entire script header before attempting to use this script. Also, it is highly recommended that anyone attempting to make use of this script first reads the sections of the NetBackup Admin Guide manuals regarding the configuration and use of 'bpstart_notify' scripts, and also reads the sections of the OpsCenter Admin Guide regarding OpsCenter ...

Could we have the option not to install and update/register things in LiveUpdate for NetBackup? So few customers use it => it should be optional :-)
updated idea 27 May 2015
In the CLI Version of "bpdbjobs" there is a column called "destination Media". I would really like to have this Column in the "Activity Monitor" of the NetBackup GUI. This makes it easy to see which job is 'playing' with what Tape.     :-) Another thing would be to have another Tab in the "Activity Monitor" that Displays some kind of output about the Scheduler. There are ...

Please add granular capabilities for Sharepoint 2013 to restore to NTFS partition. You can restore to original location, ot another farm, with no problem, but can't restore to a NTFS partition is not right. Appreciate your prompt response

Running a script when a multi-streamed backup is finished is something every other backup product can do, but why does NetBackup have such a difficult time handing this? Leaving it up to customers to concoct an unsupported way to run a script ONLY when a parent job finishes seems like a major flaw in the product.  Please develop a supported way to run a script when a parent to ...
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.
