Backup and restore startup process
When the NetBackup master server starts up, a script automatically starts all of the services, daemons, and programs that NetBackup requires. (The startup commands that the script uses vary according to the platform.)

For more information about SAN client and Fibre Transport startup processes, see the NetBackup SAN Client and Fibre Transport Guide.
No daemons or programs need to be explicitly started. The necessary programs are started automatically during the backup or restore operation.

All NetBackup processes on UNIX can be started manually by running the following:
