nbdeployutil utility options
The nbdeployutil utility is used to gather data and analyze licensing data, and then present the results in a spreadsheet as a report. The utility can be used to report on both the traditional or the capacity licensing model. The utility can be run automatically according to a customizable incremental schedule (for capacity reports only) or manually (for traditional and capacity reports).
Incremental capacity licensing reports run automatically.
The nbdeployutil utility supports incremental reporting. NetBackup triggers nbdeployutil to run based on a specified schedule, incrementally gather data, and generate capacity based licensing reports for the past 90 days. There are no scheduled reports in traditional licensing. Reports for traditional licensing must be run manually.
If you upgrade from an older version of nbdeployutil with incremental reporting to NetBackup 8.0 or later version, the operating system-based scheduler or Cron job is removed. NetBackup triggers nbdeployutil to run at a specified schedule, incrementally gather data, and generate capacity based licensing reports for the past 90 days.
The nbdeployutil utility can be scheduled to run capacity licensing reports, but not traditional licensing reports.
Traditional or capacity licensing reports run manually.
