version 1.0.1, 2014-06-23 : Adding official documentation & jnbSA reference.
List the backup of a file done with NetbackupCommand line to list backuped files on a netbackup server.
The user that does the bplist must have rights to list the files of the target server!
When the file is backed up using the default netbackup policy, use
the following command line on the master server. (Use the
-S master_server switch if you want to query another master server)
-b switch is for displaying the date of the backup rather than the date of the file modification.
bplist -b -l -R /path/to/the/file.extension
You also can filter by netbackup client:
bplist -C netbackup_client_used_for_backup -b -l -R /path/to/the/file.extension
If you want to filter by start date, use the
-s mm/dd/yyyy [HH:MM:SS] switch:
bplist -C netbackup_client_used_for_backup -s 06/20/2014 -b -l -R /path/to/the/file.extension
To filter by policy, use:
bplist -C netbackup_client_used_for_backup -t netbackup_policy -b -l -R /path/to/the/file.extension
to have the graphical version, use the
/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/jnbSAapplication from the netbackup server.
