my media server(5230 appliance) dedupe disk is full. i believe it is due to some backup images retention period have been set for more than 5 months.
is there a command that i could use to list all the backup images in a specific dedupe disk along with their retention period?
Master server is a Linux.
thanks in advance.
You can run 'Images on media' report for the particular retention level, e.g:
bpimmedia -dp <disk_pool_name> -rl <retlevel>
Please note that exipring old images may not give you the result that you are hoping for - only unique blocks that are no longer referenced by newer backups will be cleaned up.
I am using bpimagelist command to check the same. you can the command as below:
/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/bpimagelist -U -d MM/DD/YYYY -e MM/DD/YYYY
where -d is start date and -e is end date. It will display all the images available between mention date. You can also use policy and client options as :
/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/bpimagelist -U -d MM/DD/YYYY -e MM/DD/YYYY -policy <Policy-Name>
and for client name as:
/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/bpimagelist -U -d MM/DD/YYYY -e MM/DD/YYYY -client <Client-Name>
For more details you can check the NetBackup reference guide for commands in page number 168. Download the guide http://www.veritas.com/docs/000108088.
You can also use bpimmedia as described by Marianne. You can get the details from page 177 in the same guide.
