This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi,

I have found this content:

https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/forums/how-can-i-prevent-backup-images-expiring

 

If I want to create the touchfile - I have to do it on the master-server, or Media-Server, or client???

 

Regards

Dirk

Since it's the master server that hold the catalog it's has to be created on the master server.

http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH136153

On UNIX:
# touch /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/NOexpire on the master server.
On Windows:
<install path>\Netbackup\bin\NOexpire
Ensure that the file on Windows does not have a file extension

 

Assumption is the mother of all mess ups.
