If you have catalog backup performed around restore date you may try to restore "trylogs" and search for the log.

Simply restore files from the folder /usr/openv/netbackup/db/jobs/trylogs/*  to alternate location. 

That trylogs are: https://www.veritas.com/support/en_US/article.100038882

Hi Mike,

it's not showing logs of 2018 as system restored on 2018, last logs of dated 19th April, 2019.

Re: one year old restore logs

If you no not have backups of 'user_ops' folders with retention period of more than 1 year, or catalog backups with more than 1 year retention (for db/jobs folder), then there is no way to retrieve this data. 

You can try nbauditreport, but I doubt that this utility keeps records for more than 1 year, unless it was explictly configured for extended retention. The default is 90 days.

another chance can be OpsCenter Analytics if you run it. It keeps job history for 220 days by default and this value can be increased to a several years.

Audit persons should specify in advance which information and logs you should keep and how long..
