IMPORTANT: When installing Plug‑in for Oracle on Windows, the plug-in copies a dynamic-link library (DLL) file, “ORASBT.DLL,” to the “…\system32” directory. If you are installing the 32-bit version of the plug-in on a 64-bit version of Windows, this directory is named “…\sysWOW64”. This DLL is the link between Oracle and the media management utilities used by NetVault Backup, and is required for the proper functioning of the plug-in. Ensure that the ORASBT.DLL exists in this directory.
