How to validate the date of last backup of Client files

Created: 04 Sep 2011 | 2 comments

New to NetBackup, and still reading the Doc set, so please excuse the low-level question.

 

Our 7.0 Server is running on Solaris-10, and I just added a new filesystem to the Policy of a Solaris-10 Client.  Running the backup manually seemed to go ok, and the number of files and their size seem ok.

 

But to be really sure my config was correct, can I somehow see the newly added filesystem or the files within it, and the date each was last backed-up?

 

Thanks....Lyle

You can see what files were backed up, by BAR.
Also using bplist, you can check whether and when files/directories were backed up.

# /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bplist -C -l -b -s -e

Ex)
# bplist -C myclient -l -b -s 01/01/2011 00:00:00 /mydata/mydatafile1

With "-R" option, bplist shows contents of directories recursively.
