Hello - I hope someone can help
We are using NetBackup 126.96.36.199 on Windows
We are moving our deduplication to other disks for better performance. We have two disk pools, all the images have been duplicated to tape. I have followed this technote:
and have got to the point to delete the disk pools. One disk pool was deleted without any issues however the second reports the following
"unable to delete the disk pool. Unable to process request because the server resources are busy. Disk pool cannot be deleted because Disk Volume (PureDiskVolume) contains images"
All images have been expired from the catalogue
I have run the gargage collection using the following technote
But found for 7.6 it is different I ran this instead from this forum post: http://www.symantec.com/connect/forums/garbage-data-integrity-check
C:\Program Files\VERITAS\pdde>Crcontrol.exe --processqueue
C:\Program Files\VERITAS\pdde>Crcontrol.exe --processqueueinfo
Busy : yes
C:\Program Files\VERITAS\pdde>Crcontrol.exe --dsstat 1

I found this old post in PureDisk forum but seems to be for NetBackup with MSDP.
