Size of Catalog Backup dramatically reduced after migrating NetBackup 7.5 to Windows 2008 64bit
I need a little help and expert opinion on NetBackup 7.5 catalog backup.
I upgraded NetBackup 6.5 to NetBackup 7.5 on a Windows 2003 32-bit server. Size of full catalog backup use to be around 35GB. Then I migrated NetBackup 7.5 server to a new machine which is Windows 2008 64-bit. I did this migration by restoring catalog backup to new server. Now when I take catalog backup, it completes very quickly and total size of a full catalog backups are now reduced to 1.5GB. I also noticed that catalog backups are no more stored at the path which I defined for DR file in the wizard; but it is now created on an automatically created hot-catalog folder (previously catalog backup files were created on same location which I define for DR file in Catalog Backup wizard. We take daily full backup of catalog on disk. No incrementals.)
I am suspicious about the credibility of these new catalog backup files due to their unexpectedly small size (as compared to the size it previously use to have). Can some expert please advice is it normal? How can I check credibility of catalog backups.
Thanks in advance for expert opinions.
