the requested operation was partially successful(1)
The job was successfully completed, but some files may have been
busy or unaccessible. See the problems report or the client’s logs for more details.Resolution

Create a folder name bpbkar under the log folder of NBU Server and start the backup again. The bpbkar folder will create a txt file. Open that file after the end of backup. You will find like a below line.

	

	11:23:08.951 AM: [168320.168124] <2> ov_log::V_GlobalLog: ERR - BEDS_AttachToDLE():FS_AttachToDLE() DeviceName:'\\EMAILServer\Microsoft Information Store\Second Storage Group' BackupReason:0x2 Failed! (0xE0008497:Incremental and differential backups are not possible because Microsoft Exchange is configured for circular logging.

The above line means:-

When incremental backups of an Exchange database are attempted, and circular logging is enabled, the backup fails with a NetBackup Status Code 1. So you have to disable Circular Logging.
