Since there's no hostname on these paths, NBU will use the media server you
list for your DB backups.  Thus, if you're using veritasmedia1, you won't be
backing up anything on the master server.  You'll want to preface each of
these lines with the name of your master server (followed by a colon) to
ensure the master server directories are backed up.

You also need veritasmedia1:/usr/openv/volmgr/database AND

Hope this helps,
