Recently I was participating in the annual Disaster Recovery tests. One of my Netbackup servers in DR scope is installed on windows and its performing backups of virtual machines (VCB backup proxy server). Since this server is utilitising on daily basis about one tape I projected that during DR test I will just import all tapes from this server (there should not be more then 3 tapes - last three backup sets). So I wasn't creating any hot backup to tape (yet another tape to be offsited). During DR test I imported all needed tapes. Phases I and II went smoothly, I was able to see clients backups in reports, cool. I ran BAR and configured it to restore first VMware machine client. What was my surprise when after selecting "Select for Restore/ Restore from Virtual Machine Backup" BAR told me that there is no backup available to restore from!! I checked all VMmachines that were backed up through this VCB server - the same. I ...

Today i would like to discuss in this BLOG "File Sharing problem in storage foundation 5.0". i am using SFHA 5.0 with Windows2003 Server R2 operating system.

Note:- if your Disk Groups are not being import automatically, you can see the 2nd and 3rd link for resolution in the helpfull links below

Storage Foundation  configuration

i have two diskgroups with 3 hardisk drives. Below are some detail information

1.) Basic Disk Group = 2 drives = 4 partition
2.) UsersData Disk Group = 1 drive = 2 partitions (from 2 partitions the one partition is SRL logs)
3.) I am using virtual ISCSI SAN


My 2nd disk group (UsersData Disk Group) has a share folder on its partition and when my PC gets restart my sharing folder gets unshare so i have to re share it again on daily basis when i switch on my PC.

Netbackup Standard Client 6.5 key

This will activate Bare Metal Restore(BMR) 6.0 and Client Encryption Option(CEO)

NetBackup and NetBackup Agents and Options are not sold online; they can be purchased through our partners and resellers

What are the functionalities of these options?


NetBackup Bare Metal Restore option automates and streamlines the server recovery process, making it unnecessary to manually reinstall operating systems or configure hardware. With simple commands, complete server restores can be accomplished in a fraction of the time without extensive training or tedious administration.


This feature encrypts data during the backup process using a keyfile created by an administrator with a pass-phrase. Data remains encrypted while in transit and on the target media.

How does a customer use BMR and CEO with Netbackup versions prior to 6.5?

NBU Standard Client license key is backwards compatible with...

The Symantec User Research team is interested in collecting some feedback on NetBackup RealTime Protection during a 2 hour remote usability focus group. We believe that the only way to build truly useful products is to ensure that our users have a voice in the design process. This is a great opportunity for you to get involved in shaping the future direction of RealTime.

RealTime is a CDP and replication product that tracks data in real-time as it changes, eliminating backup windows or scheduling since it is always on. It also reduces the amount of storage needed for backups with its virtualized storage capability and allows for stored backup data to be mounted and used directly for test and development purposes without needing additional production storage. All of this while being controlled and integrated in to NetBackup so it is an easy addition to an existing backup environment.

We are looking for experienced NetBackup administrators willing to...
