NBU client configuration

I have a VMware based Windows client that stopped  communication with the master.  The servers passed all the usual comm. tests. I beleve I can resolve the problem by going to Client Settings\Universal Settings\Use Specified Network Interface.  However, since the master cannot communicate with the client, I cannot do this.

Does anyone kown where the IP adderss is placed so that i could enter it manyally?

Thanks,

On Windows the default

On Windows the default location for hosts file is
C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc
Be careful if you edit hosts file with Notepad that it does not add .txt extension.
If you have a Unix master server, it's /etc/hosts.

VMWare Client

What is the status code when you try to connect?   What does the C:\Program Files\VERITAS\Netbackup\logs\bpcd\<date>.log file show when you try to connect?  What happens on the master server side when you run the bpclntcmd -hn <client hostname>  Does the right IP address come back?

If using VCB backups, could this client be backed up via VCB or is it running MS-SQL or equivalent?
