Hi All,

Can somebody elaborate about these two?

Both are used in Unix and Windows.

bprd is the executable that is called the Request daemon on a Unix/Linux master and the Request service on a Windows master.

bpcd runs on all servers and clients and is used for initial handshake between servers and clients  - Client daemon on Unix/Linux  and Client Service on Windows.

See Appendix A of the Troubleshooting Guide for overview of NetBackup processes.

First read through the process flow diagrams, then read up about the different processes under the topic NetBackup programs and daemons.
