bppficorr — list the persistent snapshot information in the NetBackup catalog for a specified client and delete catalog entries for the snapshots that no longer exist
[-media] [-hoursago hours] [-policy policy_name] -client client_name
-rotation -policy policy_name -client client_name -fim fim_args
-delete_snapshot -fragment_id fragment_id -client client_name [-cnum copy_number] [-ctype MIRROR | NON_MIRROR]
-report -clientlist snapshot_client_list_file
On UNIX systems, the directory path to this command is /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/
On Windows systems, the directory path to this command is <install_path>\NetBackup\bin\admincmd\
For the specified client, bppficorr lists the persistent snapshots currently found in the NetBackup catalog. Without the -media option, bppficorr compares the catalog information to the actual information on the client. It removes any entries in the catalog that do not have corresponding snapshots on the client. This option is useful if a snapshot on the client is renamed or removed.
NetBackup manages persistent snapshots. Do not rename or remove a persistent snapshot; otherwise, the data cannot be restored.
The output of bppficorr goes to standard output.
You must have adminis
trator privileges to initiate this command.
- -client client_name
A required option. NetBackup lists the persistent snapshot information in the NetBackup catalog for this client. This name must be as it appears in the NetBackup catalog. By default, bppficorr searches for all clients.
- -clientlist snapshot_client_list_file
- -cnum copy_number
- -ctype MIRROR | NON-MIRROR
- -fim fim_args
- -fragment_id fragment_id
- -hoursago hours
Includes the images that were written up to n hours ago (1 or greater). The default is all images.
Lists all persistent snapshot entries in the NetBackup catalog for the client that is specified on the -client option. The list includes the backup IDs and the media descriptions for each backup ID.
For more about the media description, See the NetBackup Administrator's Guide, Volume II.
- -policy policy_name
NetBackup lists the persistent snapshot information in the NetBackup catalog for this policy for the specified client. The default is all policies that include the client that is specified on the -client option.
bppficorr writes activity log information to the
/usr/openv/netbackup/logs/admin directory (UNIX systems) or the
<install_path>\NetBackup\logs\admin directory (Windows systems). You can use the information in the directory for troubleshooting.
Example 1 - Resynchronize the NetBackup catalog with a client's actual snapshots:
# bppficorr -client lupine
Example 2 - Display the snapshots that are currently in the catalog for client lupine:
# bppficorr -media -client lupine
