I agree some NBU templates, as well as general Symantec ones would be much more appreciated than appliance templates...

I appreciate the feedback guys. We will look into non-appliance stencils as well.


Would love to see this soon...

I'd like to see these too

Could you also provide a 5000 appliance stencil?

Hi Marcel,

  Use 5020 stencil for 5000. The base model of 5020 is very similar to 5000 with the exception of capacity and NIC speed. From drawings perspective, they are identical.

Any stencils for the BUE 3600 appliances?

I am checking with my BE counterpart. Stay tuned. 

Does anybody have the stencil for a 5220 with 6 X 1Gbe+2 X 10 Gbe + 6 X 8GB FC

TKs i hope for a long long time^^^^^^ remark:

Microsoft Visio Stencils for NetBackup Appliances has great shapes and functionaltiy - I really use it when i do class diagrams and sequence diagrams. But it makes product decription to be very clear.

Are the stencils showing all the 'supported configurations' for the given appliance? I have a 5220 and will be adding cards, but do not see my 'target configuration' as an option in the stencil set.

2 port 10Gbe and 4 ports 8Gb FC, with a total of three cards. Working with an SE it sounded like the 2-port 10Gb card for slot 1 (yanking out the 4-port 1Gbe), and then a 2-port 8Gb FC card in slots 3 and 4.

We provide stencils for factory shipped configurations only. The absence of a configuration here (becuase of in field upgrade/changes) does not necessarily mean that you have an unsupported configuration. 


Thank you.
