Delete records from catalog

Hello.

I'm new with NetBackup and i've got difficult situation.

There were some images, that were manually deleted from hard disk. But the catalog still has records of those images, so NetBackup is trying to Duplicate them consistenly, but there is nothing to 'duplicate'.

I cannot expire them either, because they have not been duplicated.

So, how can I tell NetBackup not to perfom Duplication of those images? It won't succeed anyway...

Re: Delete records from catalog

A simpler way is to add the "-force_not_complete" option to bpexpdate to expire the image(s).
So the command would be:
bpexpdate -d 0 -backupid <backup_id> -force_not_complete -nodelete"

That way you don't have to worry about cancelling SLP operations.

Re: Delete records from catalog

you can cancel SLP operations by individual backup ID - see here :

Once they cancelled you can use the nodelete option bpexdate ao that it doesn’t try to delete the file
