nbjm — run NetBackup Job Manager to submit jobs and acquire resources to start jobs


nbjm [-console] [-terminate]

On UNIX systems, the directory path to this command is /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/

On Windows systems, the directory path to this command is <install_path>\NetBackup\bin\


The NetBackup Job Manager binary (nbjm) service starts when NetBackup is started, and it remains active. The primary function of this binary is to accept the jobs that nbpem submitted, acquire the resources to run them, and then start the job. This service then waits for the completion of a job and sends a signal to nbpem when a job completes. This service also handles all IRM communications to bpjobd for Activity Monitor information, external resource requests, and it writes to the progress log.



This option enables you to start NetBackup in console mode.


This option accepts an option parameter, which is the number of seconds to wait for jobs to finish before it terminates. The default is 60 seconds. If you enter a value of 0, nbjm waits until all jobs complete before it terminates. If a limit is placed on the termination, after that limit is reached, nbjm terminates without waiting for the completion of jobs.
