Veritas NetBackup is based on a client /server architecture. Each NetBackup client and server  belongs to a storage domain. A storage domain consists of a single master server, its associatedmedia servers, and NetBackup clients. The master server controls and directs all NetBackupoperations in its storage domain. Each media server controls the backup devices it is connectedto. A media server can have one master server only, but a master server can control more thanone media server. The NetBackup clients are any systems containing data to be backed up. Amaster server can acts as a media server, and both are capable of acting as clients.
The NetBackup master server is the manager of the storage domain. An administrator cancontrol all NetBackup functions in the storage domain from the master server. It managesall backups, archives and restores.
The NetBackup client is any system with data to be backed up. The client software istailored to the operating system on which it is installed. Normally, a client operates under the control of the master server according to the policies and schedules set forth by theadministrator. A backup client accesses the storage media through a media server.
The NetBackup media server hosts one or more backup devices. Media servers aredirected by the master server and provide additional storage by enabling NetBackup touse the storage devices they control. Media servers can also increase performance bydistributing the network load. A NetBackup master server may function as a mediaserver, client may also function as a media server. NetBackup manages client data in incremental called backup images. A backup image originatesfrom a single client and may consist of a file, a directory, a file system, a partition, or a database.The NetBackup file database on the master server contains detailed information about each backup image such as the filename of each file backed up, the backup time, size, permissions,and ownership. An entry for each backup image is written in the master server’s volume databasethat maps the backup images to the volumes where they are stored.
Netbackup Reports
Status of Backup reports : It shows status and error information on jobs completed within thespecified time period.Client backups report : It shows detailed information on backups completed within the specifiedtime period.Problems report : Lists the problems that the server has logged during the specified time period.The information in this report is a subset of the information obtained from the all log entriesreport.All log entries : Lists all log entries for the specified time period. It includes the informationfrom the problems report and media log report. This also shows the transfer rate (the transfer ratedoes not appear for multiplexed backups).Media list report : It shows information for volumes that have been allocated for backups.Media contents report : It shows the contents of a volume as read directly from the media header and backup header.Images on media report : Lists the contents of the media as recorded in the NetBackup imagecatalog.Media log report : It shows media errors or informational messages that are recorded in the NetBackup error catalog.Media summary report : It summarizes active and non active volumes for the specified server according to expiration date.Media written report : It identifies that were used for backups within the specified time period.

: for checking theclient entries for completed backupsThe Backup Status report shows status and error information on jobs completed within thespecified time period. If an error has occurred, a short explanation of the error is included.
