    My personal preference is to take the master down last, and bring it up first.  Since the master is usually the EMM server as well.  All the systems communicate via EMM.  I just think it's cleaner this way.

  • Below are the commands to stop the services:-

    For Windows:-

    To start the services:-

    <install path>\netbackup\bin\bpup -v -f

    To stop the services:-

    <install path>\netbackup\bin\bpdown -v -f

    For unix/linux:-

    To start the services:-

    /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/goodies/netbackup start

    Or

    /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bp.start_all

    To stop the services:-

    /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/goodies/netbackup stop

    /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bp.kill_all

  • You can use the bpdown / bpup scripts on Windows and for Linux / Unix you can use bp.kill_all / bp.start_all 

  • You may need to stop the pbx exchange service.

    /opt/VRTSpbx/bin/vxpbx_exchanged stop
    /opt/VRTSpbx/bin/vxpbx_exchanged start

    It does not matter which will be first master or media.

  • Hello,

    There are some NBU services are inter dependent and also some services get start  based on license installed.

    Maunally starting and stopping services may take lots of time so better use the bpup/bpdown (windows) & bp.start_all/bp.kill_all  (Unix) to start/stop the NBU services. This are commands to force start/stop the service.

    #/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/goodies/netbackup start

    #/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/goodies/netbackup stop

    <installpath>\netbackp\bin\goodies\netbackup start

    <installpath>\netbackp\bin\goodies\netbackup stop

    The above is generic command to start/stop the service.

    I recommend to refer the NBU admin guide for more information.

     

    Thanks & Regards,
