Managing your policies is important, but also being able to quickly communicate the policy schedules to customers is just as important.  At our site, we use OpsCenter to send reports to the customers, but I wanted a way to show the customers what their backup windows were.  The NetBackup Admin Console allows you to view them, but you can't export it.  OpsCenter also lets you view them, but you can't email or export them.  Luckily, NetBackup has a few command-line tools that allow you to view policy schedules: bppllist and bpplsched.  I mostly use bppllist, but you can examine the output and see what works best for you.

 #!/bin/ksh

BASENAME=$(basename $0);
DIRNAME=$(dirname $0);
CMD_ECHO="/usr/bin/echo";
CMD_EGREP="/usr/bin/egrep";
CMD_BPPLSCHED="/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/bpplsched";
CMD_BPPLLIST="/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/bppllist";
CMD_BPGETCONFIG="/usr/openv/...

Lauren Whitehouse at ESG had an interesting blog post a couple of weeks ago about the battle between two vendors in the virtual backup space and their childish twittering about who ruled more. It got me thinking about the mad rush by all vendors to capitalize on the virtualization movement. Somehow in the race to rule VMworld someone forgot to inform the real world that there can't be 4 #1 vendors in the same space. Unpossible! 

So Lauren, thank you for bringing a reasoned voice to the conversation. It is Twitter wars like the one that triggered your blog that have created a need for organizations to investigate social media archiving, something we added to the new release of Enterprise Vault 10 and covered in a recent survey. Putting all of...

Hi All

 

It would be helpful for those who are frustated with updating number of clients with exclusion and exceptions to exclusion in Netbackup (7.x Onwards).

Here i would demonstrate how you can achive this by making use of Hidden Option of Global Exclude / Exception Lists.

 

Open Netbackup Administratration Console

Browse Hosts Properties  - Clients

Select all the clients where Exclusion and Exceptions to Exclude lists needs to apply.

Right click on selection and select Properties.

Navigate to Windows Client - Exclude Lists

Now on under Exclude Lists

Click on Add

Specify the Policy(ies), Schedules and the path (File / Folder /Drive) to be excluded

Now after you added the exclusion it should be highlighted with Golden Color.

Today we will discuss how to generate an email for status if our Tape Drive may down. We may have seen that we can get the status via email regarding our Backups of Veritas Netbackup but what if our Tape Drive may down. 

Through getting the status email for our Tape Drive we can save our down time. So today we will see how can we decrease the down time of Backups as much as we can. 

Environment

OS of Netbackup Server = Win2008

Procedure

There may be many ways of doing this but through the below step by step procedure we will configure the Event Viewer so that we can get the Email regarding the Tape Drive errors which are being printed in it(Event Viewer)
