Re: bpstart command giving "newtask" command not found message

Could you please open the file and post line 21 here? 
Or else, copy entire file to bp.start_all.txt and upload the file.

Hi Mariane,

Apologies for delayed response:
Below is the snippet you requested for 

17 # Set umask to 022 to make sure files and directories
18 # are not created with world writable permissions.
19
20 # Added below command during NBU configuration
21 MYPID=$$; newtask -p NetBackup -c $MYPID
22
23 umask 022

Do you have a 'newtask' command on your system ?

I checked on a Linux box I had to hand, but this was 7.5 and there was no newtask binary.

7.6 may be different, or it may be available from a package.

@MG11 

Could you please post the entire file?

Curious to see if any PATH variable is defined.

We also see that this is only related to NBU configuration
If we can see the rest of the file, it might be possible to comment out this line. 

The only other Veritas URL that I can find is for Solaris Performance Tuning:  https://www.veritas.com/content/support/en_US/article.100002746.html
