CLI Command Line Interface

GUI Graphical User Interface

Media Server 

Master Server 

 

Starting and Stopping Netbackup

Stopping Netbackup

• /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/K77netbackup --> graceful shutdown 

• /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bpps -a --> check for any remaining processes 

• /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/goodies/bp.kill_all ---> kills all remaining netbackup processes, not necessarily graceful 

• /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bpps -a --> check for any remaining processes 

• kill -9 for any remaining. NOTE: unkillable processes may require a reboot 

Starting Netbackup

• /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/S77netbackup --> after bp.kill_all, to restart 

• /usr/openv/volmgr/bin/vmd

Common Tasks

Starting the Administration GUI

• java from the windows client 

• x-windows from the server - /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/xnb & 

Checking Backup Status

• Activity Monitor or 

• /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/bpdbjobs -report 

Cleaning a tape manually

• Identify the drive name to be cleaned 

o tpclean -L 

• Manually clean the drive: 

o tpclean -C 

Determining what tapes were used for a backup

• GUI 

o Backup and Restore --> Find the file system --> Preview Media Button 

• CLI 

o Find the correct backup images 

 bpimagelist -U -client -d -e 

o Find the media used for those images 

 bpimagelist -U -client -d -e -media 

Listing the files in a backup

 

Find the tape(s) used (above procedure using bpimagelist)

cd /usr/openv/netbackup/db/jobs/done

Run the following script and redirect it's output to a text file:

for file in `grep MOUNTING *|grep |awk '{print $1}'|sed 's/:MOUNTING//'`

do

echo $file

grep PATH_WRITTEN $file|awk '{print $3}'

echo " "

echo "==========================================End of Image======================================"

echo " "

done

 

 

This process works for NBU V3.4:

• cd /usr/openv/netbackup/db/images/ 

• ls -ltr --> this will identify the directory with the proper date 

• verify directory with "bpdbm -ctime 

• cd 

• ls -ltr --> lists all of the backups for this client on this date 

• cat __.f | awk '{print $10}' --> this prints out the files in the backup 

 

For NBU > V3.4

• bpflist --help --> undocumented netbackup command to list files from a binary .f file 

 

 

Inventory the Robot

• Inventory Robot --> /opt/openv/volmgr/bin/vmcheckxxx -rt robot_type -rn robot_number -list (where robot_type is tld, acs, . . .) 

• Inventory Robot and Update Configuration --> /opt/openv/volmgr/bin/vmupdate -rt robot_type -rn robot_number -list (where robot_type is tld, acs, . . .) 

Listing Properties of the Volume Pools

• vmpool -listall 

Scratch Tapes

• Count scratch tapes: /usr/openv/volmgr/bin/vmquery -pn Scratch | grep -c "robot slot" 

• Moving tapes to the scratch pool 

o If Needed - Expire the tape 

 bpexpdate -ev -d 0 -force -host 

o Move the tape 

 vmchange -p 2 -m 

Checking Drive Usage

• /usr/openv/volmgr/bin/vmoprcmd 

Taking a drive down or up

• /usr/openv/volmgr/vmoprcmd -down 

• /usr/openv/volmgr/vmoprcmd -up 

 

Performing a Restore

• From the GUI 

o user backup & restore --> configuration --> client 

o user backup & restore --> configuration --> client to restore 

o directory to search 

o directory depth 

o date range 

o file --> browse backups for restore 

Adding New Tapes to the Library

• Using the GUI 

o Media Management --> Actions --> New --> Single Volume . . --> 

o Media Type (ie DLT) 

o Robot Type (ie TLD) 

o Media ID (from Inventory) 

o Slot Number (from Inventory) 

o Robot Number (ie 0) 

o Volume Group 

o Volume Pool (ie Scratch) 

• Using the CLI 

o vmadd -m -mt -verbose -rt -b -rn -rc1 -p -mm 

 vmpool -listall --> lists all pools, both name and number

o For example: vmadd -m 000151 -mt dlt -verbose -rt tld -b 000151 -rn 0 -rc1 8 -p 2 -mm 0 

Re-using Tapes from other systems or older Netbackups

• Expire the media 

o bpexpdate -ev MEDIA_ID -d 0 -force -host HOST 

• Deassign the media 

o vmquery -deassignbyid MEDIA_ID 4 0 

• Move to the scratch pool 

o vmchange -m MEDIA_ID -p POOL#

• Relabel the media 

o bplabel -ev CIM572 -d dlt -p Scratch

Changing the attributes of media

• Changing the barcode 

o vmchange -barcode CYM100D -m CYM100 

• Changing the Volume Pool 

o vmchange -m MEDIA_ID -p POOL# 

 

To expire media

• bpexpdate -ev -d 0 -force -host 

To unfreeze media

• List the frozen media 

o /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/goodies/available_media | grep -i FROZEN 

• Unfreeze the media

o bpmedia -unfreeze -ev -h 

To relabel a tape

• bplabel -ev -d -p 

• bplabel -ev 000687 -d dlt -p TriVrgt_OFFSITE 

To remove media from the Netbackup database

• Verify that there are no images on the tape 

o bpimmedia -mediaid 000687 -L 

• Expire the tape 

o bpexpdate -ev 000687 -d 0 -host scorpius -force 

• Get the status and pool number of the tape 

o vmquery -m 000687 

• Deassign the tape 

o vmquery -deassignbyid 

o vmquery -deassignbyid 000687 4 0x0 

• Delete the tape 

o vmdelete -m 000687

 

Installing the Netbackup Client

• /update_clients -ForceInstall -ClientList /tmp/clients.lst 

o requires that TMPDIR and TEMPDIR be set correctly 

Excludng files from backup on a client

• Create /usr/openv/netbackup/exclude_list 

• Put the file specifications of the files/directories to be excluded 

o /mnt/directory/* 

Displaying Information about a Tape

• vmquery -m --> Displays attributes about a particular tape 

• bpmedialist -U -mcontents -ev 000687 --> Displays media contents 

• bpmedialist -U -mlist --> List of all media 

• bpmedialist -U -mlist -ev CYM966 --> Listing of a particular media id 

• bpimmedia -mediaid 000687 -L --> Listing of images on a tape

Robtest Commands

• Starting robtest 

o robtest 

o 1 --> to select TLD 0 

• Getting help 

o ? 

• Looking at contents of the tape drives 

o s d 

• Looking at the contents of the library 

o s s 

• Moving a tape from a drive to a library slot 

o s d --> to identify drive number that has tape (Contains Cartridge = yes, Barcode=XXXXXX) 

o s s --> to identify an empty slot in the tape library (Netbackup will need to be re-inventoried) 

o m d# s# --> from from drive # to slot # 

o s d --> verify the tape drive is empty 

o s s --> verify the library slot has the tape

 

Configuration Files

/usr/openv/netbackup/bp.conf 

• configuration file, sets backup server and backup clients 

• force statement must be correct 

• client to browse from 

• client to restore to 

/usr/openv/volmgr/vmconf

Logfiles

To utilize logfiles, create the corresponding directory in /usr/openv/netbackup/logs

 

Server Logfile directories:

• admin - adminstrative commands 

• bpbrm - backup and restore manager 

• bpcd - client daemon 

• bpdbjobs - database manager program process 

• bpdm - disk manager process 

• bpjava-msvc - Java application server authentication service 

• bpjava-usvc - process that services Java requests 

• bprd - request daemon process 

• bpsched - scheduler process that runs on master servers 

• bptm - tape/optical media management process 

• user-ops - required directory for use by Java programs 

• xbpadm - X based administration utility 

• xbpmon - X based job monitor process 

Client Logfile directories:

• bp - client user interface process 

• bparchive - archive program 

• bpbackup - backup program 

• bpbkar - program that generates golden images 

• bpcd - client daemon 

• bpjava-msvc - Java application server authentication service 

• bpjava-usvc - process that services Java requests 

• bplist - program that lists backed up and archived files 

• bpmount - program that determines local mountpoints and wildcard expansion for multiple streams 

• bphdb - Oracle database backup program start process 

• db_log - database specific extension log 

• tar - tar process log during restores 

• user_ops 

Media Manager logging automatically goes to the system log using syslogd logging facility

.Logging will only occur if these directories are created. These directories will generate a lot of data and should be deleted when no longer necessary.

 

To increase the amount of logging information set VERBOSE=2 in /usr/open/netbackup/bp.conf (default is VERBOSE=1)

Processes

ltid

acsd

vmd

 

Useful Commands

 

bpcllist - list classes

bpclinfo -L --> displays info about a class

vmpool - volume pools

vmpool -listall

vmpool -listscratch

bplabel -ev -d hcart

bpbackup db --> backs up the catalog

bpclclients --> lists the clients for a particular policy (class)

Troubleshooting

bperror -statuscode <-- displays information about the netbackup error.

 

No Backups are running:

• Check system log file for error messages

• Stop and restart all the netbackup processes 

• Look for a downed drive 

o /usr/openv/volmgr/bin/vmoprcmd 

o /usr/openv/volmgr/bin/vmoprcmd -up 0 --> this will bring up drive 0 if it's control shows as down

• Look for pending requests 

o /usr/openv/volmgr/bin/vmoprcmd or gui --> device management

o If there is a pending request either re-assign it to a drive, or deny the request 

Downed drive does not come back up or does not stay up

• Check for a hardware problem by looking for messages on the tape library 

• Make sure there is not a tape stuck in the drive 

o Use robtest (described above) to look at the drives 

 If there is a tape stuck in the drive, try to remove it using robtest 

 If robtest fails, then you must manually remove it. 

Verify the Client is communicating properly:

• bpclncmd -ip --> from both client and server 

• bpclntcmd -hn --> from both client and server 

• bpclntcmd -pn --> from client only 

 

Device Actions

Device Management --> info about tape drives

• dlt 

• hcart (ultrium) 

Media Actions

Media id must agree with # of the tape

Create a media id

• actions -->new-->single volume-->dlt cart (not dlt2) 

• put it into the "netbackup" volume pool 

Netbackup Client

 

To check things out do this:

 

It could be a couple things. Mostly DNS, bp.conf, or something stupid. On

the client run this command

 

/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bpclntcmd -pn

 

/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bpclntcmd -server "server name"

 

/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bpclntcmd ip "ip_address"

 

 

One of these usually fails and your able to fix it right off 

 

1074 ./bpclntcmd -hn corpbu1

1075 ./bpclntcmd -ip 10.194.1.129

1076 ping 10.194.1.129

1077 ./bpclntcmd -hn corpldv1

1078 ./bpclntcmd -hn corpbu1.corporate.vox.net

1079 ping corpldv1

1080 ./bpclntcmd -ip 10.194.1.120

 

 

Must be able to resolve correctly from the master server and the client or it will not work!!!

If it's not running then go to the below path to start the netbackup service. 

 

/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/goodies/netbackup

 

3. On vob03 check vxtask list whether the flashsnap is running or not.

 

Hope you will understand my problem....

 

Regards,

 

Ragha.....

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To freeze the tapes you need to login to the respective media servers

 

 

cd /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd

zin05view03:/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd # ./bpmedia -freeze -m SVEW03

PLEASE... When you find information like this, check and test each of the commands and options. 

Once again - this is VERY old information - pre-NBU 6.0. Some commands do not exist anymore, e.g. bpcllist and bpclinfo. -ev option was replaced with -m. bpsched process does not exist as from 6.x.

 

Some sections are complete garbage, such as:

Then check the follwing process are running or not

1. Go to /usr/openv/volmgr/bin/sgscan

zin05view01:/usr/openv/volmgr/bin # ./sgscan 

.....

 

If it's not showing then do

/etc/rc2.d/S99M2500 start

Again run the sgscan command 

 

HUH??? 

And the reference to flashsnap and vxtask???

No, REALLY!!!

For the points you get for publishing blogs and articles, the least you can do is to check what you copy and paste!

Agreed, Still Learning,

If i were in place of you commenting a blog or article, I would have appreciated the posting of such old information, which very hard to find with google,

as symantec support is no more supporting this version, we should post old information as much as we can..

Posted this in view of Peoples using nbu 5.x 6.x..

 

still agreed post should be valid...

This information would have been great if:

  • It was updated with current, relevant info (NOBODY should still be on 5.x ...)
  • All irrelevant text removed .e.g  (there is more.... )

    Hope you will understand my problem....

     

    Regards,

     

    Ragha.....

  • Nicely formatted with proper bullets (like I'm using here)
  • Not everything in big, bold text.
