I'm new to NB. I Installed NB 8.0 on Win server 2016 (master/media server).
When I Lauched NB Admin console I'm getting the error "Unable to login, status: 526 cannot connect to the PBX service. Make sure the service is up. Check the log file for more details"

Check the log file for more details-> what logs do i need to check?
Are you tying to open the java console from same master server or java console is installed on some remote systems and trying to loing?
if java console is installed on remote system and trying to connect from there make sure TCP port 1556 has communication from remote sytem to master server.
if you are trying to open the java console from same master server first if pbx port is listion state or not.
to check follow below steps
1) open command prompt in master server
2) telnet <masterserver name> 1556
check if telnet command is connecting or not.. if it is not connecting if indicates that your master server services are not running fine.. you may need to restart, reboot or reinstall.
In addition to Ram's excellent post:
Logs to check: PBX log and server.log.
PBX log is not plain text. You need vxlogview to view the log.
After you have restarted PBX, we need to see if it stays running.
Open cmd to run vxlogview:
vxlogview -p 50936 -i 103 -t 00:05:00
(above command will display log entries for last 5 minutes)
You can send output to a .txt file and upload here (assuming you have C:\Temp folder):
vxlogview -p 50936 -i 103 -t 00:05:00 > C:\Temp\pbx-log.txt
server.log is plain text and located in <install_path>\VERITAS\NetBackupDB\log\
Copy the file to server-log.txt and upload here using the 'Choose Files' link.
