Hello

Is looking for documenation of the -resync_host_cache option of bpclntcmd.

Have tried Netbackup7.6_Commands.pdf and searching symantec sites and the web, without luck

Regards

Michael

Hi Michael 
I have learned to remove the '-' when I search Google for command options. The '-' is saying to Google to exclude/omit the word.
So, my search criteria in Google was:
site:symantec.com bpclntcmd resync_host_cache

My 1st NetBackup trainer taught me that if a command is not documented in the Commands manual, it is not supported and should not be used unless instructed by Support engineer.

I found these:

http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH214830 
bpclntcmd -resync_host_cache process is started by bpcd -standalone every 15 minutes ....

https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/forums/disable-or-shorten-lifespan-dns-host-cache 

So, not a user command and this is why it is not documented in Commands guide.

There is some documentation on 'When and how to clear the host cache' here: http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH136792
As advised earlier we do not have it listed under the commands guide, thus we do not have any technical articles for it.

Thanks Marianne, wonder why I did not find that technote

 

Ananya, think the option should be descibed as it shows up when doing bpclntcmd -help, could be described with a caution that only Symantec is allowed to use this option.
