Basically sharing what I know so other don't have to go through the same process as me.

Entire NetBackup 7.1 Documentation Set in PDF format

(Posted IDEA for Docs to be made available in more e-reader formats ... epub mobi etc)

very helpful links above. thank you guys

Really thank you very much.

Marianne, this is so simple and so great idea to put these links in one place and then the link in your signature. Thank you and respect for that. I've put this post in favorites already.

It's a great idea to share useful information. For myself, it's so easy, but for others, it may be very hard.

thanks again.

Thanks everyone! Glad to know others find it as useful as I do!

Thanks all it is really a good linkssmiley

Liked the link.

Hi.. is nbu 7.5 backup planning and tuning guide available? I've seen the 7.1 is available so far.



Symantec NetBackup™ 7.0 - 7.1 Backup Planning and Performance Tuning Guide
[Article URL]
I am looking for the Master server hardware performance requirements. e.g. cope for number of Media server built; associates with number clients; number of jobs per session/day; backup data capacity.
I was told that, there is no hard limit on the number of Media / or clients built within a Master.

There is no separate document listed in 7.5 docs. The assumption therefore is that the previous doc would still apply.

This 2-year-old White Paper contains good suggestions for Master server sizing/specs. IMHO it should still be valid: - NetBackup 7.5 installation guide has recommendations on HW for NBU 7.5. This doc is under the common link shared in this article by Marianne.
