This issue has been solved. See solution.

I am upgrading from NBU 6.5.3  to NBU 7.1, and the instructions state that I must run he nbdb_admin -validate -full command to validate the DB brfore upgrading.     Do Netbackup services HAVE to be down when this runs ?

Yes, NBU services must be stopped.

See http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH126758 :

Note: Before performing a consistency check, stop all NetBackup Services on the EMM server.

The master and EMM servers are usually the same server.

Once all services have stopped, start only the ASA Service.
