Hi All,

Just wanted to share some of the research I did.

We installed a 2 node NBU cluster with and SFHA 5.1 SP2. After installation the master server would always show DOWN in activity monitor. I confirmed on the forum and tech support but they just said that it is normal but no one could help me in getting rid of the RED thing which looks abnormal to anyone.

The trick was in bpclusterutil to remove the services which are not required for a master to function.

In my case I observed that Device manager and KMS service were going down after we bring up the cluster.

Revomed these services from registry -

First DOWN the NBU cluster resource.

Edit registry and go to


Remove the services which show up in Event viewer that they go down.

Bring up the NBU resource,

I hope it helps people.

After reading the ambiguous veritas error code trouble shooting tips on line I realized they all mentioned VSS, but didn't really have a quick fix for the problem. So, I tinkered around and found the following to work pretty much 99% of the time.

Of course, you'll want to validate your configurations as the 1st step of trouble shooting.

In most cases simply starting and stoping the Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service solved the problem, which should be set to manual Start type.

Otherwise, I make sure my the client attributes are set to the settings listed below.

Windows Open File Backup Configurations on Host Server > Client Attributes

-Enable Windows Open File Backups for this Client

-Use Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service VSS

-Global drive snapshots

-Disable Snapshots & continue


Enterprise Environment:

Physical and Virtual Servers

Windows 2003 and 2008 r2

Hello everybody:

   When you create or consult an exclude/include list, it is neccesary to know what means all the parameters in these commands for the most efficient exclude/include list creation or search:

 1.- These commands is used too for edit, remotly, the server's bp.conf file, CAUTION¡¡

 2.- For include/exclude list, it's " -i | -e  " options in both parameters.

 3.- Many policies that contains the same client is an usual configuration, so:

              - Identify in which policies is the client/server => to refers each one in the bpsetconfig/bpgetconfig commands, use " -c " option

                * This option refers each entry in the "class" directory used to list all the...

Symantec Corp. (Nasdaq: SYMC) today announced the latest edition of Symantec NetBackup 7.5 to help enterprise organizations overcome their data protection challenges. The current approach to backup modernization offered by other vendors is broken. Data growth has been exponential while backup performance gains thus far have been incremental. At the same time, backup teams are frustrated with missed backup windows and non-integrated solutions for physical and virtual backups, deduplication and snapshots. Ultimately, organizations face a situation where recovery, the end goal of why backups exist, is complex and unnecessarily expensive.

Symantec is delivering a new approach to data protection and introducing NetBackup 7.5 with new options, including NetBackup Accelerator to speed backups by up to 100 times while delivering “Instant Full Recovery” capability, NetBackup Replication Director to integrate NetApp®...
