This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi Team,

Is ther any log to find which user have initiated the restore or backup. Usually  we will find in /usr/openv/netbackup/log/user_ops/<userid>

But that is if we know which user have kicked off the restore or backup. 

In My scenario. I dont know which user kikked the restore. So i need to find from which userid the restore has been triggered.

Try bprd log on the master.

There should be something like this: 

09:18:28.656 [11378] <2> db_valid_client: -all clients valid-
09:18:28.656 [11378] <2> fileslist:    sockfd = 9
09:18:28.656 [11378] <2> fileslist:    owner = root
09:18:28.656 [11378] <2> fileslist:    group = root
09:18:28.656 [11378] <2> fileslist:    client = 

Hopefully yours will show the user name.

bprd log folder does not exist by default - create the folder if it does not exist and restart NBU to enable the log>

hi you can also use find command to find the logs files in /usr/openv/netbackup/log/user_ops/ at the restore triggred time frame..

/usr/openv/netbackup/log/user_ops/ only logs if the job is triggred from Netbackup master servers

find /usr/openv/netbackup/log/user_ops/ -name *.log 

match the modified times of the files with the restroe time that would help to find the location of the file and user name.

if that is triggred from client you only have option of bprd log..
