Difference

Can anybody tell me the basic difference between

 

 

Windows: %INSTALL_PATH%\NetBackup\bin\admincmd\nbpemreq -suspend_scheduling
Unix: /usr/netbackup/bin/admincmd/nbpemreq -suspend_scheduling


Windows: %INSTALL_PATH%\NetBackup\bin\admincmd\nbpemreq -resume_scheduling
Unix: /usr/netbackup/bin/admincmd/nbpemreq -resume_scheduling

AND

 

From the command line, run:

/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/bprdreq -terminate

 

NBU 7.1.0.2

I have read the documents but not clear.

One thing many folks haven't mentioned here: running nbpemreq -suspend_scheduling, also terminates bprd.

So to summarize:

nbpemreq -suspend_scheduling:

  • No scheduled jobs
  • No manual jobs, restores, etc.

bprdreq -terminate:

  • Scheduled jobs still run
  • No manual jobs, restores, etc.

nbpemreq -suspend_scheduling will susped all scheduling.. so that  there will not be new jobs comming and submitting to the nbjm...all active and queued jobs will run.. but no new scheduled jobs..

 

nbpemreq -resume_scheduling will bring nbpem to regural work after suspending... so that it can submit the jobs to nbjm....new jobs will comming in as per the schedule.. 

 

bprdreq -terminate .. will terminate the bprd process.. so that you can not start any restore , manual backups and user /client iniciated  jobs.. ..because bprd is the one who recives all this requests..

 

hope this helps..

What do you think/ or know this does:

nbpemreq -suspend_scheduling

From the command you see it works on nbpem

What do you think this does ...

bprdreq -terminate

I'll give you a clue ...

BPRDreq -terminate

So ... you should be able from this to work out the difference ... not that there really is one as these commands work on totally differencies ...

So taking what the two commands do, if you run them, what do you think NetBackup is not going to be able to do ?

No, see, THAT thread was by Andy2345. 

THIS thread is by Arun K! 

Totally different... because they're totally different people!

@Martin:

 

With bprd terminate command ,Netbackup will not send the request to nbpem.so no manual backup will run.

nbpem -suspend/resume will stop and schedule backup to run.

 

Correct?

Close enough - bprd will not acept any manual requests for backups (bprd doesn't send them to pem, goes straight to nbjm).

pem won't run any scheduled backups ....

So - the end result is that NBU willl not be able to run any backups, thus allowing maintainance tasks to be carried out, for example.

BPRD terminate will allow schedule backup to run?

yes.. becuase schedule backup will iniciated form NBPEM.

 

you need to understand about the different daemons and process in Netbackup and their roles.., then you will identifiy these as a cake walk..

 

hope this helps..

BPRD is only for manual initiated and user initiated backup restores?

"BPRD terminate will allow schedule backup to run?"

I confirmed this was correct in my previous answer.

bprd will only affect scheduled backups ...

yes.. when you talk about jobs..

@Naga:Bprd terminate is for manual initiated backup jobs and restore jobs and user initiated jobs/restores.

And Nbpem -resume/suspend is for scheduled jobs.

 

This is the final answer?

I have read that.

 

bprd also prompts NetBackup to perform automatically scheduled backups. bprd must be running on the NetBackup master server in order to perform any backups or restores.

Bprd talks to nbjm or to nbpem in a backup process flow?

bprd -> nbjm  (for manual backups / restores)

nbpem -> nbjm (for scheduled backups)

bprd does NOT talk to nbpem. nbpem (policy execution manager - for Scheduled backups only - NOT for manual backups OR restores!)

I disagree.

Before I posted previously, I stopped bprd and made sure the scheduled backup ran.  It did, and completed successfully.

However, with bprd running a few lines are put in the bprd log, but for the basic disk type backup I ran, clearly they aren't that important as the backup still completed.
