Services and Retries

Created: 11 Mar 2009 • Updated: 22 May 2010 | 2 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

I have 2 Questions here

1. How to check whether the NBU services are running on a client from the master or the media server remotely either in windows or a Unix Client. is there a command to check it,

 

2. How to change job retry for a client. Is there a command to change it or do we need to change the settings on the configuration files, if so please mention the file too.

 

Thanks in advance

Prab

hi,

  • To check netbackup services stats you can run "bpps -a" command on client. I am not sure if there we can check remotly but you can check "tpclinetcmd -ip <ip address>" command to check clients connectivity with netbackup server, if this command fails its mean NB services are down. I know this is not the solution but shortcut.

 

  •  I am looking answer for your second question. will get back to you soon.

#  bpconfig -U

Admin Mail Address:
Job Retry Delay:              12 minutes
Max Simultaneous Jobs/Client: 50
Backup Tries:                 4 time(s) in 12 hour(s)
 

# bpconfig -tries 3 -period 11

#  bpconfig -U

Admin Mail Address:
Job Retry Delay:              12 minutes
Max Simultaneous Jobs/Client: 50
Backup Tries:                 3 time(s) in 11 hour(s)
 

      -tries times
                 The  number of retries for a backup, during the configured time period
                 (see -period). NetBackup tries  to  run  a  backup  job  for  a  given
                 client/policy/schedule  combination  this many times in the configured
                 period. This allows you to limit the number of backup attempts  should
                 repeated failures occur.
 

       -period hours 1...24
                 The time interval associated with the configured number of tries for a
                 backup  (see  -tries). This is the period, in hours, during which Net-
                 Backup will attempt a backup job for a client/policy/schedule combina-
                 tion  for  as many tries as configured. hours must be a positive inte-
                 ger. The default is 12 hours.
 

VERITAS ain't it the truth?
