What version of NetBackup?

SQL Server 2012 supported from 7.5.

We are using 7.5.0.4. I think there is something weird that when i control the windows logs, backup job seems completed. Then, i am waiting 20 min. and netbackup suddenly says backup finished. It takes too long time to backup 200 MB database.

You need to give us more info.

Please tell us what exactly the following means?

....  when i control the windows logs, backup job seems completed. 

Please show us all text in Details tab of SQL parent job and each of the child job.

Please ensure that dbclient log folder exists under ...\netbackup\logs on the client.
Copy log file to dbclient.txt and post as File attachment.
