Click Azure Active Directory.
Navigate to User settings.
Click Manage external collaboration settings.
Set Guest users permissions are limited to No.
Click Save.

Failed to verify target Windows machine from a Linux-based NetVault Backup Server

When trying to verify a Windows target machine from a Linux-based NetVault server during the creation of a deployment task, the verification fails, even with valid credentials.

While verifying the target machines, the following errors displayed:

This issue occurs when the kerberos on the Linux Server machines is not properly configured. Check /etc/krb5.conf for a valid default_realm.

This issue also occurs when the kerberos ticket is expired for the user. To renew the ticket, run the following command on the Linux NetVault server:

Successful execution of the command should result in successful verification for the specified user.

NetVault Backup is unable to send reports as an email attachment in PDF format on RHEL 5.x platform

The ability to generate a PDF requires components that are not available on RHEL 5.x platforms.

When attempting to send a report as a PDF from a RHEL 5.x platform, the PDF does not generate.

To send the report as an email attachment in HTML format, complete the following steps:

Under User Interface, click Reporting.
In the Reporting dialog box, under Misc, select HTML for the Default mail format setting.
Click Apply.

Restore fails on NetVault Database backup

On Windows 2012, the Plug-in for Databases fails to restore a NetVault Database backup that is stored in a NetVault SmartDisk device.

When restoring from a DAV device, the restore fails, but only when NetVault Backup is run as a service.

If the NetVault Database backup is stored in NetVault SmartDisk, stop the NetVault Backup Service and run the service in “user space” (that is, nvpmgr debug) before starting the restore job.
