  • page number 569 in netbackup 7.5 command guide will help you understand the use and usage of nbpemreq command.

    -due
    Provides data about the clients or policies that are scheduled to run by the
    time specified. The data that is displayed is based on the current time and a
    future date. Time is indicated bymm/dd/yyyy HH:MM:SS or by a UNIX
    timestamp.

    predict | -predict_all
    Helps determine when a policy is to be run. The displayed information is
    based on the current time and a future

    more info

    nbpemreq can only predict or show what is due according to "last backup" data.  At the completion of a schedule, NBPEM will perform the calculation to determine which schedule is next due to run.  This could include retrying a failed job to re-run the currently due schedule, if the job is able to be automatically retried.  Retry Delay and Schedule Backup Attempts are set in the Master Server's Host Properties > Global Attributes.

    nbpemreq -due -date mm/dd/yy can only return the next calculatedschedule.   It will not return the value of the schedule to be run on a specific day.  It will return the next schedule to run between now and the specified date to run.

  • Thanks RamNagalla,

    some queries and as have some confusion

    1:- If I need to check which policies are going to run between 2/8/2015 MM/DD/YY  3:00:00 am  till 2/8/2015 11:00:00 am. Which option should I choose?

    2:- Is this predict option correct and would show correct backup schedules as you had said it depends on last backup?

    3:- If last backup got skipped and its schedule is today does it mean persist switch. wont show the policy in schedule? 

  • The best way to understand commands and the difference between options is to actually start using them in your environment... No explanation beats own experience where you can see the results. As per the manual, you cannot specify a period between 2 timestamps - it can only take one value to 'return the next schedule to run between NOW and the specified date.'
