About backint command line interface for SAP
Veritas recommends that you use the backint command only with guidance from a technical support staff member.
The backint interface performs the following functions:
The backup function. The backup function of the backint interface supports and defines the SAP brbackup and brarchive tools to NetBackup. brbackup and brarchive communicate with the backint interface through an in_file and an out_file parameter. The in_file parameter includes a list of files to be backed up or archived. The out_file parameter reports the status for each file and assigns a backup ID (BID) to each file. In the event of a partial backup, this function can identify successfully backed up files to the user.
The restore function. The restore function of the backint interface supports and defines the brrestore tool to NetBackup. It communicates with the backint interface through the in_file parameter and out_file parameter. The in_file parameter includes a list of files to be restored through NetBackup. It also includes the BID assigned during the backup function. The out_file parameter contains the status of the restore for each file. When the NetBackup restore operation is complete, the restore function lists successfully restored files. It also lists BIDs used during the operation.
During the backup function, NetBackup assigns the BID. It can identify one or more backup runs, a single file backup, or a group of files. During a backup function, the BID is submitted to the out_file parameter. During the restore and the inquiry functions, the BID can only be set in the in_file parameter.
If the BID is not set, the restore function uses the BID of the last backup. As an option, this function can also include a list of directories into which files are restored.
The inquiry function. The inquiry function supports and defines the sapdba tool to NetBackup. sapdba uses the in_file parameter and the out_file parameter to collect backup information. The in_file parameter contains optional BIDs and file names.
If only a #NULL is received on the in_file parameter, a list of BIDs is generated to the out_file parameter. If a BID is received, a list of files belonging to the BID is generated. If a file name is entered along with the #NULL, a list of BIDs containing that file is listed.
backint -u user_id -f function [-t type] -p par_file [-i in_file] [-o out_file]
