Netbackup and VVR

Hi All, 

I am still very new about VVR and Netbackup. I have some questions:

  1. Which volume should the VVR replicate, the whole /usr/openv or only the catalog directory?
  2. Currently our SI configure to replicate the /usr/openv, is it correct?
  3. Any tip on Netbackup & VVR best practises? I have searched the Internet but couldn't find a good one. 

We are using the Netbackup 7.5 on RedHat (6.3) platform.

The entire volume containing the images and EMM databases must be replicated.
VVR also works at Volume level, not directory level.
