The server.log under

The server.log under NetBackupDB will tell you when the Netbackup database was last stopped and started

On windows you can also see when the services was stopped/started in the event logs, if the logs contains entries far enough back.

The standard questions: Have you checked: 1) What has changed. 2) The manual 3) If there are any tech notes or VOX posts regarding the issue

Thank you so much Michael.  I was about to change directory to /usr/openv/db/log and review the server.log file and determine when NetBackup had been restarted down to the last time it was restarted.

Best Regards.

Looking at processes that run all the time, eg. nbemm, bpdbm etc I see here that NBU restarted on my test system on Oct 29th.

If I restart NBU, we see that the system was restarted today (it shows time for today), then just the date the next day onwards.
