Easy question - Exporting configuration

If I am running NB 5.1 MP4, how do I export the current settings for the server, so they can be placed in a file (for documentation purposes)?

Thanks!

What kind of configurations? There are many command line operations that you can do to get output in plain text. I suggest refering to:

VERITAS NetBackup (tm) 5.1 Command Reference for UNIX
http://seer.support.veritas.com/docs/268116.htm
or
VERITAS NetBackup (tm) 5.1 Commands for Windows
http://seer.support.veritas.com/docs/268194.htm

Patrick,

You can use the basic following commands ...

bpplclients - to collect the info of which client is configured in which policy.
bpplinfo - to collect the policy attributes.
bppllist - to collect the list of policies and their info

Patrick,
You can also run the support script located under netbackup/bin/goodies/support

This is what VERITAS help desk requests sometimes as it gives them a view into the configuration of the NetBackup environment. This is perhaps the easiest method to take a "snapshot" of your environment.

Patrick,
Thank you for the points. The points that you awarded me in this thread pushed me over the threshold so that I could be elevated to master status. Thank you!
