I am running 4.5 FP 5 on a Solaris master server and have discovered on
a Windows 2000 Client with VSP enabled that when VSP screws up and
causes the job to fail, it is not getting rid of the snapshot drives it
created. rebooting the machine cleans them up, but stopping and
starting the Netbackup client service does not. Does anyone know of a
way to clean up the snapshot drives without rebooting the client?

This would not be so bad, except the drive it's snapshotting is 400 Gig
and NetBackup thinks it is a valid drive. So the next time it runs a
backup job, it thinks it is supposed to back up the snapshot drive AND
the real drive, making 800 Gig of backups instead of 400 Gig. Yuck.
