Currently i have my drive C running out of free space soon which is the netbackup default installation location .

I have found some article to relocation using ALTPATH for individual folders or edit the windows register to relocate the entire netbackup\db to another drive letter.

Currently im using Netbackup version 7.0.1 , may i know are both above steps a supported configuration by symantec support?

NetBackup only supports moving the image catalog to a different file system or disk partition. It does not support moving the other subdirectories that make up the entire NetBackup catalog. For example, do not use the ALTPATH mechanism to moveinstall_path\NetBackup\db\error.

so if you are planing to move the image catalog to another disk partition its supported.. with above tech note.

I just find the below thread for registory edit, seems the doc is offically not avaliable.. so its a kind of risk if you follow the 2nd method(registory edit and go for support)

good luck..

I have logged a case with support and they get back to me this technote.
After reading , i found that this method is much more time consuming and higher risk .

Is there any offical way to relocate using the windows registry for Netbackup 7.0.1?
Please share with me . Thanks.
