Check /var/adm/messages for clues.

Where are you trying to start the nbvault services, it should be started on the Master server. By default it is disabled on the media server and if you try to start it, will stop it automatically after some time.

This service should be up and running on the Master server. If you still having this behaviour on Master server you could try stopping all the netbackup services and start them again.

I was check no message in /var/adm/messages and the others logs in netbackup.  This in Master server. Maybe the binary nbvault corrupted?.

I hope you are downloading the correct version of Vault as if you are trying to install vault 6 setup on 7 or vice versa then it will not start the services. If you are sure everything was done as expected please reboot the system once, though it is not required to reboot the server but sometimes it helps when everything is done as expected.

I think this the bugs, cause in version 5.x and after upgrade version 6.0 and then version 7.1, the vault management empty.

The issue was solved with rename or delete  /usr/openv/netbackup/db/vault/vault.xml after that startup nbvault.

Thank you for all opinion
