Please do not make changes just because you can. Any change to a system should be fully justified, researched, and recorded accurately in the system documentation.
The system documentation should be so detailed, it contains every change made and when, and the current setting of EVERYTHING that has been changed from the default - are you doing this ?
As someone said,
teach somebody to fish and he will never be hungry again (or something similar)
Very, very thanks for your time, patiente and knowledge.
My vote for sticky too.
Many thanks Martin,
This is very informative & my vote for sticky too.
But since I am fairly new to Netbackup as backup product, I stumble upon certain situations which are infact documented. So to your point - "T", I agree to certain extent but we might miss something from the manual/documents, & forums usually help us to get the right answer/direction quickly.
Having said that, I really get annoyed in many cases where someone asks for basic help without any prior/background effort.
Sure, I understand your point - sometimes things are documented and it 's just really difficult to find, or, you have found it, but do not understand it.
That is fine to ask for help, as you mention yourself, that particular comment was to try and stop people asking question after question after question when the answers are 'easily' found in the manuals.
Many times, we just open the manual and copy/ paste the answer - we should not be doing that too often ...
However, in fairness, if someone is very new, then I can understand that they have no idea where to look.
There are a number of people who shall remain nameless, who have been here long enough and should have enough experience to look in the manuals before posting.
All we ask, is that some one makes a bit of an effort ...

Very informative and I like the point of NB design happens not with a switch, but with a pen and paper. It made me to think twice while configuring a new client to the existing architecture. Thanks Martin
