The client will run the 'bpmount' command at the beginning of the backup to determine local filesystems to be backed up.

You can run this command on the client:

/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bpmount

Thanks Nagalla, bpcoverage works fine for me.

Hi Marianne, please confirm what exactly bpmount will work. If possible plz share any example.

Why not issue bpmount on one of your clients?

I do not have access to any Unix clients right now.

On my Windows 7 laptop, this is what the command reports:

C:\Program Files\Veritas\NetBackup\bin>bpmount
local: Shadow Copy Components:\ on Shadow Copy Components:\
local: C:\ on C:\
CDROM: D:\ on D:\

Correct. 

The same will happen when the command is issued on a Linux or Unix client.

All mount points will be listed with indication of which filesystems are 'Local'.
