This issue has been solved. See solution.

 

Solution: The following  command will display the devices attached to NDMP host(s) and their serial number(s):
 
NetBackup version 5.X (and older):
 
UNIX/Linux: /usr/openv/volmgr/bin/set_ndmp_attr -probe <NDMP Hostname>
Windows: C:\Program Files\Veritas\volmgr\bin\set_ndmp_attr -probe <NDMP Hostname>
 
 
NetBackup version 6.0 (and later):
 
UNIX/Linux: /usr/openv/volmgr/bin/tpautoconf -probe <NDMP Hostname>
Windows: C:\Program Files\Veritas\volmgr\bin\tpautoconf -probe <NDMP Hostname>
I am using NBU 7.1
 
When i run the above command ,/usr/openv/volmgr/bin/tpautoconf -probe <NDMP Hostname>
 
I am getting no message.Command just ends with no error and no output.
 
My backup is going from NDMP to SAN media server which has OST.on disk
not on tape drive
 
Can i know the reason?

The command displays the drives directly attached to a filer.

I presume you do not have any drives attached directly to the ndmp device - therefore the command will not show anything.

Simple as that
