NetBackup 7.0.1 and Windows 2008 R2 system state not included
I have a ticket open with Symantec about this same issue, however is taking some time.
We use NetBackup 7.0.1 Build 20100707. We are currently trying to use the *:\ directive or Shadow Copy Components:\ and even the System State:\ directive. The backups show successful however when we attempt to do a restore the only things we see are the Shadow Copy Components > System Service. The System State does not show up. Our 2003 R2 servers seem to be doing fine.
We've created a test policy with the server that was failing. The Backup Selections use just Shadow Copy Components:\
When we run a vssadmin list writers we see that several writers have failed. And we're actually getting warnings now. (See below)
