Netbackup works on a hostname

Netbackup works on a hostname basis. As long as all your servers and clients can resolve the hostname to the new IP and communicate to the new IP it will continue to work as normal.

The assumption is that NBU

The assumption is that NBU will be down while IP address is being changed and that the system will be rebooted after the change. This means that your master will be 'good'.

As per above post - ensure correct forward and reverse lookup from media servers and clients.

You may have to clear host cache on media servers and clients:
bpclntcmd -clear_host_cache

NBU host cache is automatically cleared after 1 hour. See http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH136792
