Veritas recommends that users do not modify or delete automanaged policies.
If the user modifies the policy, they must make sure that the policy continues to meet the service level objective as defined by the protection plan.
If the user deletes the policy, they must make sure that the asset is added to another protection plan that meets the service level objective.
- -generation generation
Ensures that the command acts on a specific generation or version of a policy. The generation value increments each time a policy is saved. Use bpplinfo or bppllist to list the current generation value. If no generation is indicated, the command acts on the current version.
- -M master_server,...
Deletes the policy information for a specific master server(s). For example, to delete policy MWF_PM from master server Saturn, enter the following:
bppldelete MWF_PM -M Saturn
Specifies the policy to remove from the NetBackup database.
- -reason "string"
Indicates the reason why you choose this command action. The reason text string that you enter is captured and appears in the audit report. Enclose this string with double quotes ("..."). The string must not exceed 512 characters. It cannot begin with a dash character (-) nor contain a single quotation mark (').
Selects verbose mode for logging.
