Hi, I need to find a quick and efficient way of check if BPSTART / BPEND scripts are being utilized on any of our clients without logging onto every server and checking the Netbackup\bin directory. Hope you can help. Thanks Nick

If you're backing up ALL_LOCAL_DRIVES you can query filelist

 

bplist -C clientname -R /  | grep -i bpstart

You might want to post this in a NetBackup forum instead of the Backup Exec one as they are completely separate products

What OS are the clients? Unix/Linux then you could script it using rsh?

A mixture of Unix / Windows. My unix scripting skills are not that great. I was hoping Netbackup had something similar to the bpgetconfig -e command used to collect exclude list information ?

Hi, you can add to script one line to create log file and save this log in a shared folder where all server's (clients) will save this log files.

There is no tools in Netbackup to tell you if a bpnotify script exist or not. I think the only option is to check the presence of these file via a surveillance tool like SCCM/Patrol/UniCenter/OpenView

Brilliant suggestion wr

I made to script to search  for SQL Database files, but it can easily be changed to search for bpnotify files.
