No information is held on the clients.

bpdbjobs command is probably the best way, run from the master, or one of the medias.

No Commands for windows client as stated by Martin, but the easiest way is to use the NetBackup client GUI (Both File system and SQL Backups)

Thanks & Regards

if you dont want to login to login in to the server and need to know the backup status.. set the backup notification

1) you can set the email notifications in the host properties to get the notifications

see the below tech note for notifications

make sure blat is setup on your windows master server..with the help of below T/N

or

3) use script to send the backup status form bpdbjobs output
