This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi All,

As my netbackup master server runs on C drive with the version 7.1.0.4 which is running out of space. Currently has 122 MB free left. 

But i have more than 12 GB free space in my D drive. Which is from separate disk.

I have already moved my image datbase to D drive long time ago. Please provide me with steps to migrate the master server application from C to D drive.

Please find the configuration details given below.

hi,

<<<<EDIT>>>>

Removing the contect on this commment as it is not recommended...  to make sure it will not mislead others..

No!  Do not follow TECH9558!

It was written for NBU 3.4 - many years before EMM database was introduced in NBU 6.0.

There was another TN that detailed steps to move post NBU 6.x to another drive letter, but Symantec has in the meantime removed the TN, because the process is not viewed as a DIY job. Simply way too many things that can go wrong....

Best to contact a Symantec Consulting partner via your local Symantec office.

Hi Marianne,

Thanks for the advice.

But is it possible to use nbdb_move for migrattion

Marianne's picture

nbdb_move is just ONE step in a multi-step process.

As per my previous post - just too many things that can go wrong. 

Symantec Support will not be able to assist you if NBU breaks as a result of a manual move.
