List of several directories are created automatically, We often wonder what other directories do actually mean, or now which one is to be removed which are of no use for now, if not removed may be they could fill up disk space by keep growing as and when there is any connection happened in between NetBackup


Have listed all the processes and referenced dir does what

Hi Dyneshia

Totally agree with your worry.. Even i too get worried when i find my customers gets in loop of LOGS.....!!!!!

Article was for newbiies in NBU troubleshooting. .where they end up searching which logs needs to be created and for what.... Although troubleshooting guide and troubleshooting section in each admin guide does highlights this all...... Though it would be better to have single pane of glass for us...
