Usage specifics of the bpbkar_path_tr touch file to enable enhanced debug logging of the bpbkar process

Solution

On Windows clients, the following steps are used:

1. Create the \\<install_path>\NetBackup\logs\bpbkar directory. Generated log information will be placed in this directory in a file named mmddyy.log (where mm = month, dd = date, yy = year).
2. Create an empty file called \\<install_path>\NetBackup\bpbkar_path_tr (ensure that the file has no extension and is named as defined)
3. Enable logging for the desired system by setting the 'Global logging level' to 5(maximum). This can be found in the Logging tab of the Host Properties  >  Clients  >  Properties section of the NetBackup Administration Console.
4. Run a backup to generate the log information
 

On UNIX clients, the following steps are used:

1. Create the bpbkar debug log directory by running mkdir /<install_path>/netbackup/logs/bpbkar. Generated log information will be placed in this directory in a file named log.mmddyy (where mm = month, dd = date, yy = year).
2. Create a file named bpbkar_path_tr to enable extended bpbkar debug logging:

> touch /<install_path>/netbackup/bpbkar_path_tr

3. Enable logging for the desired system by setting the Global logging level to 5(maximum). This can be found in the 'Logging' tab of the Host Properties  >  Clients   >  Properties section of the NetBackup Administration Console.
4. Run a backup to generate the log information

Note: The use of this touch file will cause large amount of logging in the bpbkar logs, so ensure this is turned off by removing this touch file once the troubleshooting process is finished.
 

Restart of NetBackup daemons/services is not required.
