i wish to know the list of the filesystems backed up in netbackup using bplist or any other command rather want to list the backup selecctions from the client end

You could use bplist to determine exactly *what* has been backed up, but if you specifically need to check that all filesystems are being backed up then it may not be too helpful - afterall a file system doesn't necessarily originate directly from / (root) & could potentially be 'nested' much further down.

Is that what you want, just to see if all your clients filesystems are covered by your NB policies? If so, you could look at the bpcoverage command.

e.g. bpcoverage -c client_name

 

Sorry, not too clear if you want to know exactly what has been backed up or what should be backed up?

Hi Andy,

bpcoverage seems to be an interesting command.
