Hi

 

I need a way of our ops team running manual backups. They can't have full netbackup admin rights. bpbackup -i -p <policy> seems perfect.  I can run it from root but not from non-root

I want to create a script where they can log in and run manual backups from a simple menu

many thanks

Mark

Mark,

Have you looked into 'sudo' where you can grant 'users' permissions to only run specific commands as 'root' ?
