Ok thanks Sreedhar
But what about the other folders in netbackup folder which are along with db folder. ?
So those doesn't need to move ?
I know this would be funny question but I just got in mind as the link u gave is very clear about the steps.
Thanks!

Don't move the other folders. Anyway those folders doesn't occupy much space.

So db folder in new drive can be anywhere
example:  E:\netbackup catalog\db
and same we will define in registry.
But I tried before I do to see how to create REG_SZ value in registry, unfortunately couldn't sort out.

As per the link u gave it says in step 3,

Locate the DATABASE_PATH key or if it does not already exist, create it using REG_SZ value making sure it is all in upper case. This DATABASE_PATH key is used to define where the NetBackup Image database is located.
For example: if the new database location is in D:\new_location\db, the value of "DATABASE_PATH" would be: D:\\new_location\\db

Could you please provide instructions  how to create value of " "DATABASE_PATH"  to define new locatoin in it.
Thanks!

Hi Sreedhar

Sorry.. Actually I moved the schedule again to execute this change on catalog location some other day/time because last couple times last night backups didn't finish on time, so I had to cancel and had to re-schedule another day and time..
I am too curious to do this.. I will let u know when it would be done soon.

Sorry for keeping u in waiting. for the result.

Thanks!
