Using the Access Management utility

The users that are assigned to the NetBackup Security Administrator user group have access to the Access Management mode in the GUI. The users and the NetBackup Administrators who are assigned to any other user group can see the Access Management node. This node is visible in the NetBackup Administration Console, but you cannot expand it.

If a user other than a Security Administrator tries to select Access Management, an error message displays. The toolbar options and menu items that are specific to Access Management are not displayed.

Upon successful completion, the default NetBackup user groups should display in the NetBackup Administration Console > Access Management > NBU user groups window.

To list the groups on the command line, run the bpnbaz -ListGroups command on the computer where the authorization server software is installed.


bpnbaz is located in directory /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd


bpnbaz is located in directory Install_path\Veritas\NetBackup\bin\admincmd

(You must be logged on as the Security Administrator by using bpnbat -login)

   bpnbaz -ListGroups
    NBU_Security Admin
    NBU_SAN Admin
    NBU_KMS Admin
    Operation completed successfully.

The NetBackup user groups are listed. This process verifies that the Security Administrator can access the user groups.
