The bpclimagelist command generates status reports on client NetBackup images or removable media.
For the NetBackup Accelerator feature, bpclimagelist can report the amount of data that was transferred over the network for each backup. You must configure the command to show the transferred data in the field that normally shows the Accelerator backup image size. For details, see the Accelerator topics in the NetBackup Administrator's Guide Volume I, the NetBackup for VMware Administrator's Guide, and the NetBackup for NDMP Administrator's Guide.

- -e mm/dd/yyyy hh:mm:ss
Specifies an end date and time for the listing. See the description of the -s option that follows.
- -keyword keyword_phrase
Specifies a keyword phrase for NetBackup to use when it searches. The phrase must match the phrase that was previously associated with the image.
Searches for a useful timestamp that marks the start of backup images to use for a restore. Usually, this timestamp is the time of the last full backup image. With no other arguments, this option returns the decimal number of seconds since January 1, 1970.
Specifies that the timestamp is shown in seconds granularity.
- -policy policy_name
Reports on the backup images that use the specified policy. The default is any policy.
- -s mm/dd/yyyy hh:mm:ss, -e mm/dd/yyyy hh:mm:ss
Specifies the start date (-s) and end date (-e) for the listing.
The -s option specifies a start date and time for the listing. The resulting list shows only files in backups or the archives that occurred at or after the specified date and time.
The required date and time values format in NetBackup commands varies according to your locale. The
/usr/openv/msg/.conffile (UNIX) and the
install_path\VERITAS\msg\LC.CONFfile (Windows) contain information such as the date-time formats for each supported locale. The files contain specific instructions on how to add or modify the list of supported locales and formats.
For more information about the locale of your system, see "About specifying the locale of the NetBackup installation" in the NetBackup Administrator's Guide, Volume II.
The valid range of dates is from 01/01/1970 00:00:00 to 01/19/2038 03:14:07. The default is the current date minus 6 months.
The -e option specifies an end date and time for the listing. The resulting list shows only files from the backups or the archives that occurred at or before the specified date and time. Use the same format for start date and time. The default is the current date and time.
- -server server_name
Indicates the name of the NetBackup server. The default value is the first server name listed in the bp.conf file.
Specifies a schedule type for the image selection. The default is any schedule type. Valid values, in either uppercase or lowercase, are as follows:
FULL (full backup)
INCR (differential-incremental backup)
CINC (cumulative-incremental backup)
UBAK (user backup)
UARC (user archive)
NOT_ARCHIVE (all backups except user archive)
User display format.
