Hi - hopefully some will find this useful. It's an attempt at a tidier, and more readable backup_exit_notify script, and thus hopefully also more easily maintained. FYI - NetBackup enmbedded 'scripts' such as this are overwritten by upgrades and patches, so... it is usually a good idea to keep a copy of your site specific scripts in another location - and to add steps to your upgrade/patch ...

The ...

Think it would be a good idea, if the number of CPUs used by the OpsCenter db was set to the number CPUs in the server at installation. Think it would give a better performance and thereby experience of OpsCenter
