bpcd is a process or a port?

What this output of netstat -an command showing?

In NBU 7.1,bpcd ,vnetd are standalone.What does this mean?

It does not depends on Pbx?

Run:

ps -ef | egrep "bpcd|vnetd" 

you will see them running as processes. They also listen on ports.

bpcd runs on port 13782 and is a process in later version of NetBackup (listening on that port)

netstat -an  - read this http://www.unix.com/solaris/96542-netstat-meaning-output.html

Standalone - run on their own as a process.

No it does not depend on PBX though communications into a client/server will attempt to connect to PBX to talk to bpcd.

@revaroo:

Bpcd is a port or a service or a process?

RamNagalla's picture

Bpcd is a Process 

and it uses the Port 13782 to communicate.

did you read the above references?
