Though I have moved from backup technology but when I heard the news it took me a while to accept. According to me any good netbackup engineer cannot be unknown about her and her contribution to the community. She will be missed as a gem in netbackup world.

May she rest in peace.

Very sadden to hear this news. I can vividly remember reading Marianne advises on workarounds to resolve issues at NBU 7.6.x when I first started doing NetBackup. 

She will be dearly missed by the community. RIP Marianne.

I am shocked to hear this. I met Marianne at the Veritas event in Madrid, which was the last live event before this pandemic. She was thrilled to finally meet me, and I was thrilled to meet her in person. Although I am not in backup, as a fellow VIP I know she was highly appreciated by everyone in the NBU forum. She will be missed. May you rest in peace.

Regards. Gertjan
