the space on my netbackup master server is running low. my master server is windows, (and my media server is netbackup appliance both version 7.7.2)
most of the space is consumed by "c:\program files\veritas\netbackup" (198Gb)
I know I shouldn't delete anything manually since these are the backup images.
how can I clear some of the space out? can I manually expire old backups (find if there are any backups that are in infinity retention) or compress the size of the images?
1) A quick way to possibly bring some space back is to delete any unified logs over 'n' days old. The NetBackup v7.7.2 Logging Guide is here:
NetBackup 7.7.2 Logging Reference Guide
...and see the bottom of page 35 for beginning of section:
"Examples of using vxlogmgr to manage unified logs"
2) Regarding catalog compression, see:
