My Active Directory Backup was not start backing up.
When I tried to double click on the Backup job I saw that Backup window is showing that backup is being started (as shown in the figure) but actually backup is not being written to the Disk Storage unit

1.) I also made a new policy, change the media from Disk Storage Unit to Tapes, restarted the Netbackup Server and Active directory Server as well and started trying backup but faced same problem

2.) After doing the initial checks as much as could i do i finally tried to take the backup via NTBACKUP which is the utility of Microsoft Windows but also not able to got the backup of Active Directory. You can see the NTBACKUPutility which reported me the error after failing the backup which is in the below figure

3.) i finally tried to confirm the VSS writers which basically helps to take the backup of Active Directory database and i found that the VSS writers are not able to show after running the command vssadmin list writers as shown in the below figure

4.) The above figure is not being able to show the result. The result seems to be like this in the below figure:

Conclusion:

I finally got that the problem is not from Netbackup Server but it is from VSS writers even not from Active Directory because some ppl think that it is from Active Directory
