Even after setting up the credentials properly on each and every front-end servers, app servers, SQL servers and NetBackup's host properties, it is possible that NetBackup still doesn't see the farm topology. This usually manifests in backups failing with status code 200 "scheduler found no backup to run".

If you encounter the above error message:

1. Log in to the primary front-end server (to identify which box, simply launch your SharePoint 2010 Central Administration console and take note of the hostname on the web address).

2. Launch NetBackup Backup, Archive, and Restore GUI with "Run as administrator".

3. Click "Select for Backup".

4. Let's see whether "Microsoft SharePoint Resources" is listed under All Folders.

If not, do the following:

Hey Guys,

Recently I came across a case where the one of our customer was facing an issue on restore of SharePoint List that contained custom columns.

Before

After

I tried reproducing it in house but I could not, then I asked for output of spprobe2010.exe, from the output I could see that the customer has upgraded SharePoint to cumulative pack - 14.0.6134.5000.

I upgraded my SharePoint setup to same cumulative pack and tested again and voila!!! The issue is reproduced at my setup. I investigated further and found that there are some underlying SQL changes in the cumulative pack.

The fix to this has been provided in an ET...

How far along are you on your virtualization journey? Most organizations already have more than half of their systems virtualized and are currently virtualizing their most business critical applications.

Now you are facing the challenge of keeping your ever-expanding virtual environment protected while providing the required service level for the business critical physical systems. Managing two separate isolated environments increases complexity and introduces potential for gaps in the data protection strategy if not carefully planned and implemented.

A poorly planned data protection strategy will not only increase risk to the data but will also consume more storage, restrict your recovery options and increase the time spent managing the environment. This is why it is important to understand the options and pitfalls when building a data protection strategy for virtual and mixed environments.

Host-level Integration and Virtual Machine optimized...

Automating Netbackup Installation without user intervention in 7.X  :

As we all know netbackup client installation can be performed using 

1) Install_client_files 

2 ) Or mounting the cdrom and performing installation using ./install .

                    The problem with above two methods is either we have to add client to policy or installation expects response constantly from user . I have a requirement to perform netbackup installation without user intervention .My requirement is to installation netbackup client software on 500 servers as part of baseline even before these are added any domain .  I have achieved this by editing "install" script code providing by netbackup .

    This helped in installing netbackup as part of base line along with OS . 

Summary of tasks to do to...

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?...
