Viewing hold details
You can view the list of holds by using the nbholdutil -list command.
On a command prompt on the NetBackup master server, enter the nbholdutil -list command with appropriate options and elements. For example:
When you upgrade NetBackup to version 7.7, the legal holds are converted to user holds, which can be managed by using the nbholdutil command.
In versions earlier than 7.7, OpsCenter allowed creating holds on backup images. Such holds are known as legal holds.
If the hold name of a legal hold is same as a user hold, all the hold names are renamed as follows:
The legal hold names are suffixed with _1. For example, hold_1. The number 1 in the hold name denotes that it was a legal hold before conversion.
The user hold names are suffixed with _3. For example, hold_3. The number 3 in the hold name denotes that it is a user hold.
For more information about related command options, see the Veritas NetBackup Commands Reference Guide.
To display help information about the command and its options, enter nbholdutil -help [-option]
