i reinstall mtx package but its not help me.

Yep, both can be used, mtx and netbackup are completely separate.

I have both installed on my Solaris server - no issues.  Have also done the same on Linux in the past.

I had NBU installed before I installed MTX, but I'm fairly sure that I reinstalled NBU at some point after this (it was on a test server).  Can't see how NBU could affect mtx, it doesn't touch the files that mtx uses.
