Media and device management processes
Table Table: Starting services and processes shows the NetBackup services and processes that control storage devices with removable media. NetBackup starts the processes as needed, but you can start some of them manually. The table also shows the commands that start each one.
These commands are located in the following directories:
For detailed information about the commands, see the NetBackup Commands Reference Guide, available at the following URL:
Table: Starting services and processes
The Automated Cartridge System robotic process. The Device Manager ltid starts this process.
The Automatic Volume Recognition process. The Device Manager ltid starts this process.
Starts the NetBackup Device Manager service. Starting the Device Manager also starts the robotic, robotic control, Media Manager volume, and automatic volume recognition daemons.
To stop the device, robotic, and robotic-control services, use the stopltid command.
Starts the tape library DLT robotic-control process. The Device Manager ltid starts this process.
To stop the tape library DLT robotic-control process, use tldcd -t.
The tape library DLT robotic process. The Device Manager ltid starts this process.
The NetBackup Volume Manager service. The Device Manager ltid starts this process.
On UNIX, you can use the kill pid command to stop the process for the daemon with the specified pid (process ID).
On Windows, you can start and stop services by using thetool available in in the Microsoft Windows Control Panel. If they are started from the command line, some services occupy that NetBackup Console session until they are stopped.
