Netbackup Master Server password change

Level 2


Hi Guys

we have a Windows Netbackup Master Server which I changed the password on yesterday all looked well until today that is. We have now noticed one of our VCB media backup servers could not communicate with the tape robot any more.  As soon as we reverted back to the old password things worked again.  My question where the on Windows & Linux media servers is this password referenced in?  The only reference I have found so far is the local system account.  I have also found information relating to nbdb_admin but being new to Netbackup I is not sure if this is related or not.

Any help would be much appreciated
