Unable to see files and directories of a VM backup in BAR

Hi all,

I am facing issue while performing or checking for any individual restore of files and directories of a linux vm, I  am seeing empty window in the BAR even though the option for 'enable file level vm recovery option' has been enabled. Can someone please help me on this. Our Master server verion is 8.1.2.

  • Individual file recovery for XFS filesystems is supported from NBU 8.1.2 onwards, not "8.X" generally. See the latest "Support for NetBackup 7.7.x and 8.x in virtual environments" document.

    Thanks, Andrew

      Hi Marianne,

      Thank you very much for replying, however I was able to find out which file systems were supported.In our environment, we have RHEL 6 RHEL 7 versions of OS, in rhel 6 the type of file systems used was "ext4" which was supported in 7.7.x, but in RHEL 7, we have both 'ext4' and 'xfs' file systems, and it seems the xfs is supported for NBU version of 8.X and more. Since our appliances were running with 7.7.x, we were not able to see them. However the issue has been resolved now. Thanks
