Problem

The Client Risk Analysis report shows clients as having a status of 'Online' even though they no longer exist and are no longer being backed up in NetBackup.  

Cause

If clients are listed in policies within NetBackup, OpsCenter will treat them as active clients.  This includes both backup policies and deployment policies.

Solution

Remove any clients that are no longer being backed up from backup and deployment policies.
 

To obtain a list of what clients are in policies the following command can be used on the master server:
    bpplclients -allunique -U

To obtain a list of what policies contain what clients the following command can be used on the master server:
    bppllist -L -allpolicies

Both commands are located in the following location:
Unix/Linux:
    /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd
Windows:
    <install_path>\Veritas\netbackup\bin\admincmd
