About changing the default values on Windows

To change the default values on a permanent basis, use the following method to add new registry key(s) to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\VERITAS\NetBackup\

CurrentVersion\Config

To add the key(s) safely, run the following commands. For example:

    install_path\VERITAS\NetBackup\bin\admincmd\
    echo KEEP_JOBS_HOURS = 192 | bpsetconfig

Where 192 is the number of hours that unsuccessful jobs are kept in the jobs database or Activity Monitor display.

For example, run:

    echo KEEP_JOBS_SUCCESSFUL_HOURS = 192 | bpsetconfig

Where 192 is the number of hours that successful jobs are kept in the jobs database or Activity Monitor display.

Consider the following notes when changing the default values:

  • The default values for KEEP_JOBS_SUCCESSFUL_HOURS and KEEP_JOBS_HOURS is 78 hours.

  • The retention period values are measured against the time the job ended.

  • Information about successful jobs cannot be kept longer than information about unsuccessful jobs. If KEEP_JOBS_SUCCESSFUL_HOURS is greater than KEEP_JOBS_HOURS, bpdbjobs sets KEEP_JOBS_SUCCESSFUL_HOURS to equal KEEP_JOBS_HOURS.

  • If KEEP_JOBS_SUCCESSFUL_HOURS is set to 0, bpjobd uses the KEEP_JOBS_HOURS bpdbjobs value instead for successful jobs.

    If the KEEP_JOBS_SUCCESSFUL_HOURS value is greater than 0 but less than KEEP_JOBS_HOURS, KEEP_JOBS_HOURS is used for unsuccessful jobs only.
