Customer needs to recover crash server/sql DB. customer had ask of me to provide original path od sql db prior the crash as they could not remember.

Is there a way in netbackup to confirm this?

Thank you

No Guarantees, but it seems as if 'Create a move template' can be used to find the original path for original database location.

SQL should be up and running when NBU for SQL is opened to browse for SQL backups for this client.

See Browsing for backup images and then how to create the move template under Performing a database move in NBU for SQL Admin Guide:

Thank you Marianne, I have also thought about this idea too... I will keep you and all posted.

I Have been able to retrieve the initial path after the server was rebuild, installed netbackup clients and SQL server. I have put together a simple step by step on how to retrieve the mdf & ldf path. Please see attached for your reference. Thank you.
