Entire NetBackup 7.1 Documentation Set in PDF format http://www.symantec.com/docs/DOC3906

(Posted IDEA for Docs to be made available in more e-reader formats ... epub mobi etc)

Tip: Get overview/document your NBU environment. Run 'nbsu' and review the output.

• If this provides help, please vote or mark appropriate solution.

Marianne, this is so simple and so great idea to put these links in one place and then the link in your signature. Thank you and respect for that. I've put this post in favorites already.

Hi.. is nbu 7.5 backup planning and tuning guide available? I've seen the 7.1 is available so far.

 

 

Symantec NetBackup™ 7.0 - 7.1 Backup Planning and Performance Tuning Guide
[Article URL http://www.symantec.com/docs/DOC4483]
 
I am looking for the Master server hardware performance requirements. e.g. cope for number of Media server built; associates with number clients; number of jobs per session/day; backup data capacity.
 
I was told that, there is no hard limit on the number of Media / or clients built within a Master.
Thanks.

http://www.symantec.com/docs/DOC5155 - NetBackup 7.5 installation guide has recommendations on HW for NBU 7.5. This doc is under the common link shared in this article by Marianne.

There is no separate document listed in 7.5 docs. The assumption therefore is that the previous doc would still apply.

This 2-year-old White Paper contains good suggestions for Master server sizing/specs. IMHO it should still be valid: https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/articles/w...

Hello All,

I am a fresher. I just got a project where I have to work on this Net Backup domain but there is no trainer available. Can you guys help me to start with this thing in a practical manner so that I can learn it faster?
