Use nbdb_ping and nbemmcmd -listhost in combination. nbdb_ping check the underlying processes and nbemmcmd actually fire off a query towards the EMM database.  If both command return successfully you are 100% sure EMM is up and working.

Is there NO way we can convince you to actually run these commands and figure it out for yourself?

Please show us output on your server.
When you do, we will help to understand the output (in case you battle to understand the output).

To understand the different parts of the catalog, please read through these posts again:

Please check NetBackup 7.5 Administrator's Guide for UNIX and Linux Volume I, page 784. Sybase ASA(Adaptive Server Anywhere) is former name of Sybase SQL Anywhere. As written in Commands Reference, nbdb_ping displays status of NBDB and BMRDB. Once try it yourself, NetBackup 7.5 Administrator's Guide for UNIX and Linux, Volume I http://www.symantec.com/docs/DOC5157 About the NetBackup relational database NetBackup installs Sybase SQL Anywhere during the master server installation as a private, non-shared server for the NetBackup database. The NetBackup database (NBDB) is also known as the Enterprise Media Manager (EMM) database. It contains information about volumes, and the robots and drives that are in NetBackup storage units.
