bpplclients and VMware clients
We currently use the bpplclients command in quite a bit of auditing, alerting and automation scripts we've built over the years. It has served us well!
Now it appears that when using the "Select automatically through query" option in NetBackup VMware policies, "unexpected" results from the bpplclients command as follows: (client names changed to protect the innocent)
Client/HW/OS/Pri/DMI: client1 vmx-08 win2000AdvServGuest 0 0 0 0 ?
Client/HW/OS/Pri/DMI: MEDIA_SERVER vmx-08 winNetEnterpriseGuest 0 0 0 0 ? This is REALLY client2
Client/HW/OS/Pri/DMI: client3 vmx-08 winNetStandardGuest 0 0 0 0 ?
Client/HW/OS/Pri/DMI: client4 RS6000 AIX53 0 0 0 0 ?
Client/HW/OS/Pri/DMI: MEDIA_SERVER VMware VMware 0 1 0 0 ? This is REALLY client5
Client/HW/OS/Pri/DMI: client6 VMware Virtual_Machine 0 0 0 0 ?
Client/HW/OS/Pri/DMI: MEDIA_SERVER vmx-08 winNetEnterpriseGuest 0 0 0 0 ? This is REALLY client7
I've already engaged our Symantec BCAM/BCE and have them researching but wanted to reach out to you all and see if you all had ideas on how to get a list of clients (like bpplclients does when not using the query to build your client list).
Thanks all, and happy Friday!
