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.
Flex Appliance does not support adding local directories or manually editing any of the files on application instances. If you create a local directory or manually edit a file and the instance is relocated or stopped for any reason, the changes are not maintained when the instance restarts.
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 -s
You can run commands for the following directories and executables on master and media server instances:
/opt/veritas/vxapp-manage/cp-nbu-notify (Not supported in NetBackup 8.2)
You can run commands for the following directories and executables on media server instances only:
This command should only be used during instance creation. If you want to resize the storage on an existing instance, use the Flex Appliance Console.
The df command may show incorrect usage information for application instances. However, the total storage and the available storage are correct. To determine the correct usage information, subtract the available storage from the total storage.
