Netbackup does a file level backup, rather than block level.  This means 
that the filesystem used is not relevant, and the underlying structure
even more so.

E.g. it works at the directory/file level - so it backs up the files
that it finds and doesn't care what sort of block device is under that.

(That's assuming you're doing file backups, and not raw devices for DBs)
