Please check the Netbackup Machine and Policy Type are specified correctly,

they should match the machine and type that are provided in Policy.

You should always use the clients full qualified domain name (e.g. In the Netbackup world and host1 are different hosts. Using the "wrong" name will return the "does not contain any backup for client" message.

Assumption is the mother of all mess ups.

Hello Saran,

1. Check whether the Source Client specified in BAR console is same as in Host Properties.

2. Check whether you mentioned the same policy type in BAR Console as mentioned in the policy attributes.

Policy Type should be: MS-WINDOWS

3. Check the Restore type in the BAR Console.

Restore Type: Normal Backups
