Below are a few shell one liners I use and/or have in a cron job. If you'd like me to post more, let me know and I'll continue to share.

-----

Activate SLPs

for SLPS in SLPNAME1 SLPNAME2 SLPNAME3; do /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/nbstlutil active -lifecycle slp-${SLPS} ; done
 
Disable SLPS
for SLPS in SLPNAME1 SLPNAME2 SLPNAME3; do /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/nbstlutil inactive -lifecycle slp-${SLPS} ; done
 
Show pending SLP jobs  (SLPs must be active to get correct job information)
for SLPS in SLPNAME1 SLPNAME2 SLPNAME3; do echo"" ; echo "**** slp-$SLPS ****"; nbstlutil report -lifecycle slp-$SLPS ; done
 
Show all clients in a departments policy
for policy in /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/bppllist | grep -i department ; do echo ${policy}; /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/bpplclients ${policy}; echo;  done
 
List available scratch tapes in physical library
/usr/openv/volmgr/bin/vmquery -b -pn Scratch | grep -v HCART3 
 
List available scratch tapes in virtual library
/usr/openv/volmgr/bin/vmquery -b -pn Scratch | grep HCART3 
 
Count total number of scratch tapes available
/usr/openv/volmgr/bin/vmquery -pn Scratch | grep -c "robot slot"
 
List current drive paths that are down
/usr/openv/volmgr/bin/vmoprcmd | grep DOWN
 
Show the files and KB backed up for a client named clientA for the previous 15 days (24 hours *15 days =360 hours )
/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/bpimagelist -hoursago 360 -U -client clientA |awk '{file+=$4} {kb+=$5} END {print file" " kb}'
 
List the tapes used for a specific client over the previous 15 days  (24 hours *15 days =360 hours )
/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/bpimagelist -hoursago 360 -U -client client_name -media
 
Make better use of mail_bp_reports. After doing this, 3 different reports will be emailed to you.
 
Edit the "/opt/openv/netbackup/bin/goodies/mail_bp_reports" script as shown below:
#!/bin/sh
MAILTO=youremail@address.com
Then add $MAILTO to the end of the lines containing "mail_cmd":
cat $OUTFILE | mail_cmd "My Company's NetBackup backup status" $MAILTO
cat $OUTFILE1 | mail_cmd "My Company's  NetBackup problems log" $MAILTO
cat $OUTFILE2 | mail_cmd "My Company's NetBackup cleaning stats" $MAILTO
