Not all commands are documented because they are not designed to be used by end users. Some binaries are called by Netbackup as part of normal operation. bpplvalid may very well be one of them.

If you want to do some "spying" you can alwas do a "strings bpplvalid" to see what text or error messages enclosed in the binary.

yes only used internally by NBU

This is one of the things that makes me crazy about NetBackup, and it demonstrates that NBU is a Linux application minimally ported to Windows.  If it were written by someone who knew anything about developing for windows, the bpvalid function would be compiled in a DLL, and not an exe, making it transparent to the end user.

Same is true for many products.
