Deleting backup information from the NetBackup catalog

The nbmysql delete command, removes the backup information from the catalog files but retains the backup files on the NetBackup media server.

The parameter -S is the required parameter. Alternatively you can use the -i option to delete a backup using its backup image name.

By default, NetBackup uses the values that you have defined in the nbmysql.conf file.

To delete the MySQL backup information

  1. Configure the parameters, in the nbmysql.conffile or set them on the command line.
  2. Run the following command:

    nbmysql -o delete -S master_server_name [-i copy_id].
