    Just create the dir under netbackup/logs for the process you want to get the logs for.

    eg.  /usr/openv/netbackup/logs/bpbkar

    YOu'll need to restart the NBU processes for the change to be picked up, but also first add VERBOSE = 5 into bp.conf to increase the verbose level.

    Apart from PBX, which is a unified log.

    Debug/ Diag 6 is wrong for PBX, it has a max log level of 10 which is the default

    The level set can be checked with /opt/VRTSpbx/bin/pbxcfg -p

    It can be changed with /opt/VRTSpbx/bin/pbxcfg -s -l <level>

    It can be viewed with 

    /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/vxlogview -p 50936 -o 103 -t 1:00:00

    (this wouold display the last 1 hour, relative to when the command is run)
