In GUI: select NetBackup Management-->Master Servers-->master-->Client Attributes-->client-->Windows Open File Backup, enable this & then select appropriate snapshot provider
1.) When you add the client in the CLIENTS BOX the WOFB (Windows Open File Backup) will be enable
2.) The Windows Open File Backup properties specify whether a client uses Windows Open File Backup. The properties also specify whether Volume Snapshot Provider or Volume Shadow Copy Service is used as the snapshot provider.
Snapshots are a point-in-time view of a source volume. NetBackup uses snapshots to access busy or active files during a backup job. Without a snapshot provider, active files are not accessible for backup.
