This idea is for a tool to be created that can be run against a NetBackup deployment (master/media/clients) to check for Symantec best practices and make recommendations where necessary (items like number buffers/size buffers/media and master server resource utilization/clients or servers with old software versions). The tool could even be integrated into a product like NOM to run on a regular schedule and so that it could alert when items become out of compliance/best practice.

That's can be very useful. We created our own script which checks each Netbackup server and verify that the Netbackup conf setting match the recommended for that type of server. Based on the setting attribute (force, no force) the script can change the setting or alert NBU Admins.
