Commands used in VxUpdate
NetBackup uses two commands to let you modify the NetBackup package repository as well as initiate policies from the command line. Command-line policy initiation is useful in environments where scripting is in use. The commands are:
Use the nbrepo command to manage the NetBackup package repository. You can add, validate, and delete packages, as well as obtain package identifier and other information on packages in the repository. This command is only located on the master server.
Use the nbinstallcmd command to initiate the deployment policies from the command line. You can also use the command to initiate on-demand deployment jobs. This command is located on all hosts in the NetBackup environment.
More information about these and other related commands is available.
