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 ...

Is it possible to add functionality to enable restoring an entire Oracle database from the BAR?  This would involve adding functionality to enable restoring the controlfile from the BAR. Thanks, Sam

If any of you idiots from Symantec are reading this,get the following file off my PC which you embedded over a year ago and prevents me from downloading components for a different antivirus system.The file is C:\PROGRA~1\Symantec\S32EVNT1.DLL. If this is not done promptly,I will have my day in the Law Courts. TC.
