I made changes to a policy (changed the backup time) and issued "./nbpemreq -updatepolicies" from master/media server. did a " ./nbpemreq -predict -date 10/13/2016" to make sure it's not listed. ok. then did a " ./nbpemreq -predict -date 10/14/2016" because this is when i want the backup to start. guess what. it's listed there.
so i did a "./nbpemreq -updatepolicies" again. no luck.
why isn't the new schedule being acknowledged?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I don't know if things have changed in NBU 7.7 (I don't have much hands-on these days), but my experience with 'nbpemreq -updatepolicies' up to 7.6.x has not been good.
I have personally never had success with the command directly after a policy/schedule change and had to wait out the built-in 10-minute NBU policy re-read.
What happened in your case? Did you try again a bit later to list schedules?
Or perhaps a mis-config where NBU's interpretation of schedule is different to yours?
