simply restart inetd and check tcp port to see that the client is listening

VERITAS ain't it the truth?

To stop:

cd /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/goodies

either run bp.kill_all or netbackup stop

do a bpps -a to verify no processes/daemons are running

To start:

in /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/goodies

run netbackup start, once it returns to command prompt, do a bpps -a again, all should be back up

I got a bad feeling about this !

I may be wrong here, but I do not believe "goodies" is available on a system that only has the client loaded.

Ahh yes, my bad.  I misread and didn't see he said client.  But hey, at least I tried, right, lol.

I've made that mistake a time or 20 myself.  Especially when I am getting frustrated with a client and I could only wish we had "goodies."  but alas, no such luck.  Kinda like the client I am struggling with now :)

you dont
 
Clients are just waiting for the master to back it up.
 
bbpcd is kicked of by the master.
