"NetBackup Catalog Backup change successful" started showing up

Created: 21 Dec 2012 | 5 comments

I started receiving email with "NetBackup Catalog Backup change successful" about a week ago.  Not sure why I continue to get these daily (multiple instances of the email).

Does anyone know why I might be getting these?

may i know how did you configure the catalog policy?

is that from Vault or regular catalog policy?

what is the content of the mail? and what it is trying to say..?

Hmmm... it seems as if it *might* be related to the vaults we have running on our deduplication pools.  The emails reference *old* catalog backup images (from mid-September).  Odd... I will check the vault jobs that are running to see if they might be sending these.

Strange... doesn't seem to be coming from the vault job - no notifications are enabled there...

does it possible of late delivery from SMPT server?

where did you configured to make use of this path /remote/home/netbackup/CatalogBackup-PRD01/ as a DR file locations.

It's coming from NBU.

Seems to be a feature introduced recently and on  investigating I found out that at least one reason they are sent is if the DR file is modified.

From memory, if I have a DR file that lists the media for full catalog backup and then additional incrementals, and then I expire say the last incremental the mail will be sent, as the DR file is updated.
