Running NetBackup commands on an application instance

Flex Appliance provides the capability for the appadmin user to run NetBackup commands on all NetBackup master and media server instances.

To run NetBackup commands on an instance, open an SSH session to the instance and log in as the appadmin user. For each command that you want to run, specify sudo and enter the absolute or the relative path. For example:

sudo /opt/veritas/vxapp-manage/tune -t

You can run commands for the following directories and executables:

  • /opt/veritas/vxapp-manage/cp-nbu-config

  • /opt/veritas/vxapp-manage/cp-nbu-notify

  • /opt/veritas/vxapp-manage/resize

  • /opt/veritas/vxapp-manage/tune

  • /usr/openv/netbackup/bin

  • /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd

  • /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/goodies

  • /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/support

  • /usr/openv/volmgr/bin

  • /usr/openv/volmgr/bin/goodies

  • /usr/openv/pdde/pdag/bin/mtstrmd

  • /usr/openv/pdde/pdag/bin/pdcfg

  • /usr/openv/pdde/pdag/bin/pdusercfg

  • /usr/openv/pdde/pdconfigure/pdde

  • /usr/openv/pdde/pdcr/bin

  • /usr/sbin/mount.nfs
