from last one year, I have seen lots of folks (with in and outside organization) asking me about NODirectSDR registry entry or I have suggested them to use it to resolve lots of problems with flashbackup for windows policy type backups. I will get some time to post an article on that and usage info. I will update the link here as well.

I snuck this screenshot out of the development labs for those people who have to see it to believe it.

 I usually don't trumpet the arrival of each new Hardware Compatibility List (HCL) that we post for NetBackup, but this one is special since we're annoucning support for Quantum's OST device which I blogged about a little while back. Good stuff. I love treating disk as disk. | 19 Mar 2009 | 0 comments

The Symantec Enterprise Vault and NetBackup Product Management Teams are conducting customer research in support of our product integration planning.  The first part of this research effort is 4 page web survey (see below).  This online survey is designed to collect some relevant customer environment and satisfaction/outlook data.  We would like to get as many NetBackup and Enterprise Vault customers as possible to complete the survey so that we have a comprehensive data set, and also to leverage these responses in recruiting for our 2nd wave of research (customer “interviews”) and possibly other related follow-up discussions.


The survey should take approximately 20 minutes to complete (it contains 40 questions). The survey is intended for product administrators (NBU and/or EV administrators).  The questions assume a strong understanding of the information managed by our products, as well as the environment...

My last post showed NetBackup Operations being displayed on a Nintendo Wii.

Stumpr asked about the iPhone. I'm glad you asked. Here is a screen shotimagebrowser image of Veritas Backup Reporter on an iPhone. 

I can't help you with the "how do I get my company to expense and iPhone or a new HDTV and a Wii" - although I wish I could.

All I ask is that everyone will pull over their car when they need to initiate that critical restore request :)

I got a big chuckle out of this screen shot sent in by a customer. If you look closely on the bottom, the buttons are unmistakeably the Opera web browser on the Nintendo Wii. The web page displayed is the main monitoring page of NetBackup Operations Manager, which allows you to monitor, manage and report on NetBackup servers at multiple versions located potentially located in multiple locations. This is fantastic, you can play a few tennis matches, then switch gears and start monitoring backup and restore operations. We don't formally test compatibility with Opera on Wii but I would like to point out that it's better to have NetBackup on Wii than NetBackup ennui ;)

When I talk to customers about  web interfaces, everyone brings up the simple use case of being in a remote situation where you need to take action or check on status without installing a bulky...
