bpcompatd [-max_time seconds] [-console] [-debug]

bpcompatd -alive [-debug]

bpcompatd -terminate [-debug]

bpcompatd -bpcd_connect clientname [-debug]

bpcompatd -bpdbm_connect hostname [-debug]

DESCRIPTION

This command is used internally by new NetBackup services to communicate with legacy NetBackup services.

OPTIONS

-alive

Tests the local bpcompatd daemon or service to see if it is running.

-bpcd_connect clientname

Tests a bpcd connection to clientname by using the bpcompatd command.

-bpdbm_connect hostname

Tests a bpdbm connection to hostname by using the bpcompatd command.

-bpjobd_connect hostname

Tests a bpjobd connection to hostname by using the bpcompatd command.

-bprd_connect hostname

Tests a bprd connection to hostname by using the bpcompatd command.

If you specify -debug, the information that is normally logged in the debug log file of bpcompatd is written to standard error.

If you do not specify one of these options, bpcompatd runs as a daemon (for UNIX) or a service (for Windows). The following options are available when you run bpcompatd as a daemon or service:

-console

This option is applicable to Windows only. Normally, bpcompatd is run through the Service Manager. You can use the -console option to run the bpcompatd service from the command line.

-debug

If you specify -debug, the information that normally is logged on the debug log file of bpcompatd is written to standard error. For Windows, this option implies the -console option. On UNIX systems, this option prevents the bpcompatd service from running in the background.

-max_time seconds

The maximum time bpcompatd waits for a new connection before it performs routine tasks. The default is 60 seconds on UNIX systems. The default is one second on Windows systems.

-robot_connect hostname robot_type

Tests a robot daemon connection to hostname for robot_type by using the bpcompatd command.

Valid robot types include the following:

NONE - Not robotic

ACS - Automated Cartridge System

TL4 - Tape Library 4MM

TL8 - Tape Library 8MM

TLD - Tape Library DLT

TLH - Tape Library Half-Inch

TLM - Tape Library Multimedia

-terminate

Terminates the local bpcompatd daemon or service if it is running.

-vmd_connect hostname

Tests a vmd connection to hostname by using the bpcompatd command.
