NetVault Plug-in for SharePoint 12.1 - Release Notes

Resolved issues

Corrected an issue that caused the Web Applications node to collapse when you tried to open an empty Site Collections node while browsing the selection tree.

DNPSP-43 (MSS-17)

Corrected an issue that prevented display of the parent node on the Create Selection Set page during the restore of a backup for an Individual Site Collection.

DNPSP-66 (MSS-39)

Disabled the Incomplete Backup of All Items Selected option for Full Backups when used with a Linux-based NetVault Backup Server.

DNPSP-106 (18272, MSS‑77)

Known issues

If double-byte characters are used in the directory specified for the Directory for Temporary Files, the backup fails.

DNPSP-26 (18192, MSS‑123)

Using an account other than the domain user account specified for the plug-in might prevent you from browsing the selection tree on Windows 2012 and 2012 R2 and later.

DNPSP-36, DNPSP-39, DNPSP-150 (MSS-135)

If network issues occur between the NetVault Backup Server and NetVault Backup Heterogeneous Client where the plug-in is installed during backup or restore jobs, the job fails with “Plug-in died unexpectedly” errors. If this issue occurs, the STSADM process on the client where the plug-in is installed does not end. Use the Windows Task Manager to end this process before running the backup or restore job again.


If you enter incorrect SQL Server credentials for a restore job, the plug-in erroneously indicates that the job completed successfully. The database is restored on SQL Server but the SharePoint site is not restored.

Workaround: Enter the correct SQL Server User Name and Password on the Restore Options dialog box, and run the job again.
