Having some customers with large netbackup database, I review the use of netbackup archiving.
Although it does the job , I found the use of the implemented solution with CLI and pipes, difficult and for a new netbackup admin strange.

Also for restores, you have to restore the all of the archived client image metadata and the re-archive them.

I found the concept to  EV to archive netbackup database interesting. You have to only configure EV and nothing else. Archiving  and restoring the image metadata will not be a concern any more.

Maybe can be used now, but I suspect that it is not supported and I do not know if it will cause timeouts to netbackup.

But I think it is a very good idea for netbackup engineers to implement it.
