Back up specific files from NetBackup master command-line

I would like to start a backup of specific files only.

With bpbackup I can do this using the -f flag or a files list, but only when running bpbackup on the client. When running from the master with the -i flag, this feature is not supported.

So is there any way the master can be told to back up specific files on a client?

  • bppolicynew <new_policy_name> -sameas <existing_policy_name>

    Then you can manipulate the new_policy_name with the previous commands I posted

    To remove:

    bppldelete <new_policy_name>
