bpinetd is the process that initiates the comms service. This is needed for connectivity between the client and server.

Extract from Backup and restore startup process section in NBU Logging Guide:

A daemon that executes on all servers and clients is the NetBackup client daemon (service),
bpcd. On UNIX clients, inetd starts bpcd automatically so no special actions are
required. On Windows clients, bpinetd performs the same functions as inetd.

So, IMHO, perfectly normal.

We have not see this abnormality before. Almost 150 GB of my C drive occupied by the security event logs every time exchange backup runs. Even we have not done any changes at OS and security level.

I doubt Netbackup is to blame. I would start asking around if someones has set increased logging level.
