If this was the case that you could map a network drive and then back it up,
what would have been the use of Netbackup client software? You could then just
have had a master/media server and mapped the drives of the systems you want to
I don't think it is possible to do this type of backup, but then again I might

Thanks for your clue.
I mean I'm mapping a network drive from another machine.
I modified the class (policy) and set 'yes' to
"backup network drives".
Now it seems to attempt to do so, but I still get an error
message saying: "WRN: Can't open directory K: (WIN32 5:
Access Denied)". Then I get the status code 251 because
I request a TIR file but it turns out to be zero byte.
Thanks for helping.
