I'm having a strange issue with a particular windows client while attempting to browse through backup images to restore.
Windows 2003 sp1 standard master/media server. client is win2k sp4
I don't see any recent backup images for a back client that I've been backing up... In fact, the last one that I see is from last year. But in activity monitor I CAN see successful backups for the last five days... So those same images do not register in the backup, archive, restore gui that I'm looking at... Has anyone ran into this issue previously?

Examine your client setting of the backup policy and make sure you change the source client accordingly in the backup, archive, restore gui. Just in case someone change the policy setting without you knowing.
Hi, Another thing to look at: the exact client name as it appears in the selection window. Example, if you used to backup the server under the name: "server.domain.com" and now you back it up as just "server"
Does your client name in the BAR gui match *exactly* with the client name listed in the job details?
David, That is what is happening, I believe. I used to backup the server under it's host name. Then it was moved to a difft' domain and I had to change the client to the fully qualified domain name: servername.domain.com
You should be able to see your current images by changing the 'source client' setting to the current client name.
When you have the BAR window open, go to File -> Specify NetBackup Machine and Policy Type In there, on the Source Client tab, just type the new cilent name in and click Add, then go find it and click Make Current. Do the same thing on the Destination Client.
>The question I have now, though, is how can I view the >images that I do have?
I know, I know that this technote is written for UNIX but the principal remains. What is happenning is that the images are stored under different folders in the image database. If you follow the window equivalent paths you will find folders for each of the names that were/are being used.
The name of a VERITAS NetBackup client has been changed and it cannot browse backup images written under the previous name for a restore http://support.veritas.com/docs/241717Message was edited by: Bob Stump
