Hello Experts,

Pls help with the below queries when ops center is not available.

1:- where could we find the changes that were made in the netbackup policy if we dont have Ops center alerts configured?

2:- file location where we could find the backup error logs daily.

3:- if netbackup policy is deleted. where can i get the policy?

Thanks,

1/ If EMM auditing is turned on, its logged in there  - run nbauditreport command

2/ Run bperror command - there no file that contains the NBU errors daily, there are many logs that you could look in to build up a picture - I think bperror is the best option.

3/  If the policy is deleted, it's gone.

You could recover it from the catalog backup, by chasing, in the BAR gui the policy type to nbu_catalog.  this allows the catalog backups to be browsed like normal backups, and the policies are found in /usr/openv/netbackup/db/class  - the individual polcies could be restored from there.

Auditing is enabled by default on NBU 7.6 master server. 

See: About NetBackup auditing

Have a look at all the links in above HOWTO.

If u want to check when policy was last modified...

cd /usr/openv/netbackup/db/class ....ls -lrt |grep <policy name>...it ll give last modify time

and if u want to see policy fields (Attributes, Backup Selection, Schedule and Client) last modified cd /usr/openv/netbackup/db/class/<policy  name>....ls -lrt
