Recycle is the only option to get the application know, there is a modification in the configuration. Btw, it's not gonna be all modifications, policy stu modification Is a simple example for it.

Thanks, Karthikeyan Sundaram.

I have been wondering for the last 2 hours if I should say to you want I really want to say.............

Another WHAT IF question......

You really sound like a 3-year old.
WHY?
WHY NOT?
WHAT IF I DO?
WHAT IF I DON'T?

We have been trying to help you for months now to become self-sufficient.

We have clearly failed.

You add no value to this community with these kind of 'non-sensical' (if there is such a word) questions - just accumulate rewards points for asking questions that can be easily found if you just do a bit of research and apply a little bit of logic. None of your points are for any kind of positive contribution.

I will contact the forum Admin to ask for permission to delete your WHAT IF and LETS SUPPOSE questions.

To answer you last question:

Your environment will end up in a mess.

PROBLEM:
STATUS CODE: 52 "vmoprcmd -d" and "tpconfig -d" do not show the same set of drives; also, robotic tape mounts may hang or time out.

Nikhil,

You are welcome to ask questions if you are really stuck with something that is broken in a real live environment, even then we expect someone to have at least made an effort to make some investigation.

Read this :

https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/forums/netbackup-basics-and-how-make-your-life-easier

It was written for a very very good reason.

I think, even if you had a very occassional what /if  question like 'one a month'  there would be no issue, but the rate at which you ask questions that you should be able to work out is getting too much - this is not what the forum is for.

You know, and don't tell anyone, I have loads of what/ if questions I want answered - am I going to ask my colleagues for the answers, nope - why not, because they will tell me politly to look in the manuals.

I'll give one more answer to this question ... why does ltid need restarting.

The reason I know the answer, is because I looked in the ltid log.

When ltid starts it reads in the device config - and that is the answer.

If you actually did some investiigation and looked in the log you would probably see this happen.

Therefore, by thinking about the question the answer is easy, it reads in the config when it starts, so, If the config changes, ltid needs to restart to read in the new config .

Marianne will work things out the same way (I think ...) - when we don't know something, we'll look in the manual, use Google, play about on a system, look in logs - the answers, at least for the simplae stuff are there.

Martin

I was in the 'LUCKY' posision 13 years ago that I was the ONLY NetBackup support person in South Africa.

There was no Veritas in SA, I had no training, no experience.
If a forum existed back then, I didn't know about it (stumbled upon this forum a couple of years ago while Googl'ing for answers). 
ALL I had was manuals and a little test system (plus customers' production installations).
No-one to ask.

That is how I learned and that is how I know what I know - nothing like 1st-hand experience.

Because NIKHIL doesn't figure out anything for himself, he does not even remember his own posts. 
We often see him asking the same questions over and over....

Never known anyone try so hard to be an outcast in a welcoming and helpful community in my lifetime on the internet.

I can only assume there is a language barrier, or a memory retention issue here, like the guy from MEMENTO.

@NIKHIL Please explain WHY you ask all these questions.? We are struggling to grasp the inexplicable machine gun firing of the queries on NetBackup Topics that are all laid out in the user guides.

You stated is was for an Interview, as the interviewee. Has it been and how did you get on?

Tip: Get overview/document your NBU environment. Run 'nbsu' and review the output.

These replies will be ignored.  He ignores them and forges on ahead.

I agree that it's time to just start deleting such questions and pretending they were never posted.  We're here to help, but not here to help you get hired.
