/usr/openv/netbackup/bin

-bash-3.2$ ls -ltr |grep -i bp.kill

-r-x------ 1 root daemon    22309 Aug 25  2011 bp.kill_all

-bash-3.2$ cd goodies

-bash-3.2$ ls -ltr |grep -i bp

What is the use of bp.kill_all?

I have below information from google.

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

You have all the answers to your questions.

What else are you looking for?

If you run these commands, you will be able to see the results.

What does then bp_kill.all in bin directory does?

Marianne's picture

If you do 'ls -l' on both, they should be same size, meaning they are exactly the same.

OS command 'diff' can also be used to check for differences:

$ diff /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bp.kill_all  /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/goodies/bp.kill_all

OK.So both do the same work.?

My logic says 'YES', if they are the same, they will do the same.
