This issue has been solved. See solution.

There are two ways this can be done :

To increase the verbose level of all logs (except vault)
Add the entry VERBOSE = <level> into /usr/openv/netbackup/bp.conf.  <level> is a value between 0 and 5, with 5 being the highest.

To increase the verbose level of a specific process:
Add the entry <PROCESS>_VERBOSE = <level> into /usr/openv/netbackup/logs/bp.conf, for example

VAULT_VERBOSE = 5  (note, this must be set to increase the verbose level for/usr/openv/netbackup/logs/vault).

Note:  Not all processes can be individually selected for a custom VERBOSE level in the bp.conf file

@Martin:This was ur post which i was reading.

Note:  Not all processes can be individually selected for a custom VERBOSE level in the bp.conf file.

Please read through chapter 3 of Troubleshooting Guide: Using logs.

All your questions are answered there. Note in this chapter the difference between legacy and unified logs.

I had a flick through the manual, I dodn't notice the processes mentioned that can be set individually.

However, I then looked in the GUI, beacuse and the anser is fairly clear, as the GUI only allows certain processes to be set individually.

So I set them, and looked in bp.conf ...

You need to learn ways to work things out - I didn't know the exact answer (memory issues ...) - but it is not that hard to work out.
As mentioned, these can be set in the GUI, probably the easiest way on windows.  Perhaps you could set them on a windows machine, and then look in the registry to see the result.

Beware of using verbose (5 especially) for too long as this can soon fill up your master/media/client file storage.
