I'm not trying to hijack the thread. If I should start my own, I will.
We are a recent customer of Symantec and use both netbackup and their 5020 appliances. We
have implmented 2 domains and are attempting to use an SLP and AIR to replicate images from one
Netbackup domain to the other.
We see the backups run and following that, the duplication run and complete as well.
Our question is, should we see another job on the remote storage system perform the import. If
we shouldn't see it in the activity monitor, is there a way (via the command line) that we can tell if the
entire process is finished?

I am happy to report this was seemingly silently fixed in 7.1 (At least
in 126.96.36.199), the only oddity is that each backup job seems to spawn it's
own SLP duplication job, so you will see hundreds of SLP duplication
Now can anyone say if SLP and GRT backups are going to work correctly in

I'm getting very frustrated about having to re-invent the wheel to
reproduce the functionality of Storage Lifecycle Policies for my
Synthetic Full backups.
For those not aware, Synthetic backup images for some dumb reason that
hasn't been explained to me cannot be managed by an SLP and you will get
dataloss if you backup to an SLP and expect it to execute the policy.
The backup will go to the Backup destination, but that is it. No
I am working on some scripts to re-produce the functionality of SLP
since Vault is not adequate as I have hierarchical duplications that are
not possible with a vault job. It is going to take a little time to get
right, and I can't help but think this must have been done before.
