 Hi 

One of our customer wants to give UNC Path in storage Unit in Netbackup,in absolute path name as shown in below screen shot.

So after giving the UNC path for eg \\<server name>\<Folder name>  , when we ran the policy we got error as follows

Error reading Volume information.STS API failed. 
Status 2060013
no more entries.

 
So we contact Symantec Engineer , He resolved this case by going on to Media Server and  give admin credentials to two services, 
  • NetBackup Client Service
  • NetBackup Remote Manager and Monitor Service

 

 

He also share a TECH Note with us which i will also share in this forum , which ver helpful for Symantec Netbackup Users

Hi 

Always remember to DISABLE UAC (User Access Control) while installing Netbackup Server or Client on any Windows 2008 R2 Machine

As its mentioned in Netbackup Windows Admin Guide: 

                                                                     Note: To install NetBackup on Windows 2008/Vista and

Windows 2008 R2/Windows 7 UAC-enabled environments,

you must log on as the official administrator. Users that are

assigned to the Administrators Group and are not the official

administrator cannot install NetBackup in UAC-enabled

environments. To allow users in the Administrators Group

to install NetBackup, disable UAC.

My last few cases were cluster related. It's funny, but some customers (and even engineers)  always forget how to manage NBU when it's under cluster control. They also believe that they can easily bring NBU up by same old start\stop scripts  during the cluster's problem. It wouldn't work out. As soon as we place NBU under Cluster  control it means that it's being controlled by cluster Agent. But Agent's functions aren't limited by start\stop\monitor routines.  Let's look at possible scenario. We've upgraded both nodes and want to perform a switchover to the another node for the check. It fails. What would we do? Everyone knows that first of all we need to understand why we can't start application in the cluster. Is it NBU's problem or is it cluster related issue? We can disable AutoFailover and switch NBU's service group to the problem node again. It'll stop in OFFLINE|FAULTED state on it. What's next?...

Dear NetBackup Users,

 

I came across an awesome story about how one company used NetBackup AIR to save them in a disaster recovery scenario.  I was pretty impressed with how they used the technology, and more so by how much it saved them in a real DR situation.  Here's the super consolidated and simplified version (or watch the VIDEO):

Super Cool Industries (real names have been changed) had recently upgraded their backup solution to NetBackup 7.5, which features a slick replication technology called AIR (Auto Image Replication).  They immediately began using AIR to replicate backup images from one of their plants to another.  One day, a crazy ice storm knocked the power out at the first plant, which left both it, and another plant that relied on one of its servers, stranded.

Now, previous to this upgrade, their old...

    In the Computer and Storage World a snapshot is the state of a system at a particular point in time. More in detail, a snapshot is a point-in-time, read-only, disk-based copy of a client volume (see Blog Link). 

    In the backup world, after the snapshot is created, NetBackup backs up data from the snapshot, not directly from the client’s primary or original volume. Users and client operations can access the primary data without interruption while data on the snapshot volume is being backed up. The contents of the snapshot volume are cataloged as if the backup was produced directly from the primary volume. After the backup is complete, the snapshot-based backup image on storage media is indistinguishable from a backup image produced by a traditional, non-snapshot backup....
