You will have to write a

You will have to write a customized script to run bplist command for the client to extract Exchange File List info, e.g:

/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bplist -t 16 -C <client> -s <mm/dd/yyyy> -R 3 /

(-s is start date; you can also add -e for end date. 'Play' with the value after -R to give you enough levels to list Storage Groups)

Save output to file and use mailx to email it.

hi, see the below tech note

hi,

see the below tech note for how to set up the mail notifications for specific client  backup. and test it once if it is giving all required info that you need.

in addition to the below one.. you can also use the Opscenter to send out the mail notification in customised way with the details what ever your required...

5. CLIENT SETTINGS

The applicable settings on the Client are the following
 
· Universal Settings
o Client administrator's e-mail
o Client sends mail
o Server sends mail

The purpose of the Client administrator's e-mail setting is to allow a NetBackup administrator to be set in the Master Host Properties > Universal Settings in addition to each client's administrator so they can be notified on the backup statuses for their clients. This will send emails for all status codes for this client to the client 's administrator.

Client sends mail and Server sends mail indicate whether the client that's being backed up will send the e-mail or the master server will. It's important to ensure that clients and server have same settings.

I have seperate set

I have seperate set notification for backup status for all clients, however I am looking for the MS exchange storage group detail backup status for narrow troubleshoot for particular stg grp as we have many numbers to verify if backup got failed (actually from netbackup console we will get partial success if any one stg grp failed)
