Broken links

All links pointing to content created in Symantec Connect do not redirect to Veritas/VOX.

The excellent collection of Nuts and Bolts blogs created by Abdul Rasheed are non-functional as they all point to Symantec URLs.

See Nuts and Bolts in NetBackup for VMware  

Pictures in the blogs are also lost. 

See Nuts and bolts in NetBackup for VMware: Transport methods and TCP ports 

There are understandably thousands of these broken links.....

Re: Broken links

I reply here rather than create a similar thread.

 

I would like to hear from a Veritas employee what would be the right track to get broken links fixed. I chatted with support staff about getting links fixed in this page: https://www.veritas.com/support/en_US/article.000072903

I don't see chatting up support everytime I come across a very viable solution for this, it's not robust.

Re: Broken links

These are actually 2 separate issues.

My post is meant for VOX Admins about missing links due to the Symantec Connect -> Veritas VOX community migration.

The only way that I am aware of to request fixes/updates to TNs is to use the 'SURVEY' section on the right of the screen.

My personal experience using this route has resulted in minimal success... Unfortunately.... 

Re: Broken links

Well, what I'm really after is to know how to get these broken/dead links fixed. My post was only to give an example.

Re: Broken links

Hi @vjuhola

I've just emailed our support manager to inform him of the broken links.

Thanks for the heads up.

@Marianne i'm looking into what can be done about the existing posts that point to symantec. It's pretty messy.

Re: Broken links

@Marianne I've personally manually updated Abdul's post with the proper links. Going forward this is something we're going to have to ask the users to do themselves if they are still active community members. The same goes for broken images.

Thans Ryan.

Some of Abdul's blogs contain images, but those are now missing, e.g.: 

https://vox.veritas.com/t5/Netting-Out-NetBackup-Blog/Nuts-and-bolts-in-NetBackup-for-VMware-Transpo...

Abdul is unfortunately no longer with Veritas and thus cannot fix the pictures himself.

I would love to assist, but I do not have editing rights and do not know how/where to find the links to the pictures in order to pull them in. 

This particular blog is still very valid but is pretty useless without the pictures/diagrams....

Re: Broken links

@vjuhola It seems that all TNs related to NBU 7.6 and earlier are in the process of being removed (without redirecting to the current version).

I did a search in the NetBackup Support landing page:
https://www.veritas.com/content/support/en_US/15143.html 

And found this TN where all links seem to be working : http://www.veritas.com/docs/000052931

Re: Broken links

Another example of broken links:

https://vox.veritas.com/t5/Legacy-Videos/Storage-Provisioning-and-Array-Migration-with-VOM-SF/td-p/8...

I guess the same will apply to ALL legacy videos.

Keeping these posts / blogs / video links around simply makes no sense...

Re: Broken links

Could any of the VOX Admins please have a look at all of these unresolved posts?
