Deleting backup information from the NetBackup catalog files

The nbmariadb command for delete, removes the backup information from the catalog files but retains the backup files on the NetBackup media server. The parameter -S and -id are required parameters.

Before you delete the backups, you must set the following parameter in the nbmariadb.conf file or provide them on the command line:

  • DB_BACKUP_ID

  • MASTER_SERVER_NAME

To delete a backup

  1. Configure the parameters, in the nbmariadb.conf file or the nbmariadb command line.
  2. Run the following command:

    nbmariadb -o delete -S master_server_name -id db_backup_image_name.
