Netbackup 7.05.07. Exchange 2013. Error 2. Dag.

After configuring Exchange 2013 DAG database and configuring the database backup in Netbackup, it would fail with error 2.

After a lot of reading, many a trial and error, I found this little gem

The solution?

In your policy under Microsoft Exchange Attributes, Netbackup wants the preferred server list populated.

Choose your Source – Active or Passive. Click Preferred Server list and add your DAG nodes.

My Working Configuration

Backup Selections: Microsoft Exchange Database Availability Groups:\DAGName\Microsoft Information Store

Snapshot Client “Perform Snapshot Backups”
Microsoft Exchange Attributes: Source. Populated Preffered Server list with DAG nodes.

Clients: YourDAGName (Cluster DNS name for your DAG)
