Command line to check files backed up

Created: 03 Jul 2014 • Updated: 07 Jul 2014 | 4 comments

Hi Friends,

I am new to Netbackup. I did a manual backup as requested and I want to put the information of files backed up and the retention in the ticket as text. if I go to the admin gui and try to do a restore of the files backed up, I see the files but not the retention.

Is there any command line command which will display the files names & retention which are backed up.

Thanks in advance.

Retention info and file info are kept in 2 different places. 
So, 2 different commands to get the info:

List of files:

bplist -C <client-name> -s <start-date> -e <end-date> -R /

Retention:

bpimagelist -client <client-name> -d <start-date> -e <end-date> -U

Date format: mm/dd/yyyy

More options to both commands can be found in Commands manual:  http://www.symantec.com/docs/DOC3684

Hello

 

You can use the bpimagelist command to show you details about each backup image (policy name, expiration, etc,etc)

You can use bpflist to show you the actual files contained in a backup images

You need an OpenVision to see the truth about Backups. Restores are a plus. But that's just Semantics ;)

ITs easy :)
