Netbackup - Sharepoint backup

Created: 28 Jun 2012 • Updated: 29 Jun 2012 | 2 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

We are on Netbackup version 7.0.1 for Windows and need to setup policies for the Sharepoint server and the Sharepoint content. The backup policy for the server is working fine. The backup for the Sharepoint content is returning a status code 2 that it cannot find the data to be backed up. I read through Chapter 4 - Configuring Netbackup for Sharepoint server and have entered a username and password for Sharepoint Host settings on the master and for the Netbackup Client Service on the host where the index files and databases reside. My guess is that the username and password do not have the proper privilages or is not the username and password for the Sharepoint Administrator for the server. Can anyone offer some suggestions or let me know if I am on the right track?

Have a look at the following thread for an example of  a checklist :

From my experience, following admin book for SP and TN from Symantec will avoid missing some configuration steps.

Thank you. The checklist is very helpful, especially for someone like me who does not have a lot of Sharepoint knowledge.
