Hello Everybody!!

Does anybody knows why netbackups for Microsoft SQL Server 2008 backup jobs ends with status 0 at the Netbackup console. When I try to restore a bakup it apears with a red icon, what does it mean?

Are the backups consistency?

I have attached an screenshot when i go to  Backup Archive & Restore.

How to take the backup of MS-SQL server 2008.

The backup has been taken using a bch file created using the Netbackup MS SQL GUI and incliding it into a backup selection list in the policy.

The red icon means that the backup is Application (user) type backup - not an error.

You cannot restore from the BAR GUI. You need to use the NBU for SQL GUI on the SQL client.

Your backups are good yes; its the color code that NBU uses to differentiate each backup type from other smiley. As per Marianne's comment RED is for Application backup.

Thank you everybody for your comments. I have another question regarding the colors descriptions for the backups.

Where can find information about that.

Best regards

I am too battling to find this info... blush

If I remember correctly, the list of icons are given as a handout during 5-day NBU classroom training.

If you just hover with the mouse over the the icons in BAR GUI, I am sure it will give you relevant info.
