Netbackup - Using CLI
I have a question regarding Symantec NetBackup command line interface.
I'm trying to work with command line only from the master server host (no Admin Console is available!!).
My problem: when I use "bpbackup" command, no 'job id' is returned, so it is problematic for me to track the parent job that is created (for getting logs, aborting it etc.)
I tried to use the pid (proc id) that is shown in the log file (when running bpbackup with -L option) and then parse the bpdbjobs -all_columns output). This may work, but I noticed that the -L output is missing the pid in case it is ran from master server.
Then I tried to see if there is a way to insert some kind of description to the backup instance. I noticed that there is a -k option to set keyword (for later restore). However, the keyward phrase is not presented in the active environment (bpdbjobs).
Does anyone has an idea/tip/trick how can I retrieve the parent job id(/job id) of a backup execution command without the GUI?
