Monitoring Progress of Push client upgrade

Created: 12 Oct 2013 • Updated: 27 Oct 2013 | 2 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.
Hi All,
 
I have upgraded a Unix client from Master server using push method.
Command I used:  /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/update_client -ClientList /tmp/clientlist
 
I know it will create a temporary folder in "/tmp" file system with name as "updating_client".
But during upgrade when I check this folder, I always found it to be empty.
 
I would like to know, how to monitor the progress of Netbackup Client Push upgrade during upgrade time.
I mean how can I verify if the upgrade is going in good manner and it is doing something on client end.
 
 
Regards,
Vickie

files in /tmp will creates in client , and it used to copy the files before upgrade..

upgrade progress generates on the server from where you run the update client command the the file name would be something like 

/tmp/update_clients.<date>.XXXXX

this exact file name you can get once the update client compleated...and also it will give you the details about the update..

On the remote client you can run something like this to see what binaries were called for this upgrade:

while true ; do ps -ef |grep bp ; sleep 3; done
