This is using Veritas NetBackup 8.11. We also using HP Simplivity VMware virtualization. There is a MS Windows VM server having about 700GB in size, in the report, has to take more than 24 hours to complete the snapshot and backup.
However, we checked the VMware web portal and found that the snapshot creation only took few second to complete. The snapshot removal and other jobs completed successfully shown in this VMware portal.
Just confuse why the snapshot and backup image have to take so long to complete. How is the whole process work? Where to look into to solve the problem?
