Introduction

During installation, the NetBackup Browser is configured to work with a specific
NetBackup client. When a user starts an operation using the NetBackup Browser,
the browser software sends the appropriate messages to its designated
NetBackup client. The software on the NetBackup client then communicates with
the server and handles the client side of the operation.
NetBackup client software enables server directed backup, archive, and restore
operations on entire folders or individual files that reside on your NetBackup
client. This software also allows you to perform user directed backup, archive,
and restore operations on your NetBackup client, without logging into the
NetBackup master server. Once you start a user directed operation, the
NetBackup process runs under the control of the NetBackup master server. You
request the service and the NetBackup master server manages the rest, including
storage and retrieval of data.
In NetBackup terminology, the system that requires the backup or archive is the
NetBackup client. The system that manages the storage and retrieval of the
backup data is called the NetBackup master server.

Backup and Archive Operations
A backup saves copies of selected files and folders from a NetBackup client to a
storage device on a NetBackup master server or NetBackup slave server.
An archive saves copies of selected files and folders to a storage device on a
NetBackup master server or NetBackup slave server, then deletes the original
files from the NetBackup client.
User Directed Backups and Archives
You can perform a user directed backup during the time period scheduled by the
NetBackup system administrator. NetBackup allows you to select a combination
of files, folders with files, or entire drives to back up.
Server Directed Backups and Archives
The NetBackup administrator can schedule full backups and incremental
backups that occur automatically and unattended, under control of the
NetBackup master server. Full, incremental and true image backups can only be
performed by the NetBackup master server. When properly scheduled, the
server directed backups will meet most of your backup requirements.
Note: In previous versions of NetBackup for Windows, server directed
backups could be only partially successful since some applications retain locks
on files when left open. This version of the software is packaged with an OTM
(Open File Manager), which resolves this problem. If the OTM is disabled, be
sure to shut down all applications on the NetBackup client before proceeding
with server directed backups.
Full Backup
When the NetBackup master server is configured to perform a full backup,
NetBackup backs up all files in a specified folder or drive to a storage unit. The
archive bit is cleared as each file is backed up. If the full backup fails, NetBackup
will attempt another full backup at the same time each day until successfully
completed. A successfully completed backup will include all files.
2
NetBackup User’s Guide - Microsoft Windows
1
Cumulative-Incremental Backup
When the NetBackup master server is configured to perform a cumulativeincremental backup, NetBackup backs up all files that have changed since the
last successful full backup.
Cumulative incremental backups can be configured to use either the datetime
stamp or the archive bit. If the datetime stamp is used, the cumulativeincremental backup includes all files with a datetime stamp that are more recent
than the last full backup. If the archive bit is used, the cumulative-incremental
backup includes all files that have their archive bit set. Archive bits are not
cleared on cumulative-incrementals. Refer to "General Property Sheet" on
page 67 for more details on performing incremental backups with archive bits.
Differential-Incremental Backup
When the NetBackup master server is configured to perform a differentialincremental backup, NetBackup backs up all files that have changed since the
last successful backup.
Differential incremental backups can be configured to use either the datetime
stamp or the archive bit. If the datetime stamp is used, the differentialincremental backup includes all files with a datetime stamp that are more recent
than the last backup, full or incremental. If the archive bit is used, the
differential-incremental backup includes all files that have their archive bit set.
Archive bits are cleared on differential-incrementals if the file is successfully
backed up. Refer to "General Property Sheet" on page 67 for more details on
performing incremental backups with archive bits.
True Image Backup
A True Image Backup takes place when the True Image Restore Information
attribute has been set on the NetBackup master server. When this attribute is set,
NetBackup collects additional information necessary to restore a folder to exactly
what it was at the time of the full backup or incremental backup.
Only those backups, performed with the True Image Recovery Information
attribute set on the NetBackup master server, can be used for the true image
restore. For complete details, refer to the NetBackup System Administrator’s Guide
- UNIX or the NetBackup System Administrator’s Guide - Windows NT Server.
Introduction

Restore Operations
A restore reads backups from the storage device on the NetBackup master server
or the NetBackup slave server and restores them to the NetBackup client.
NetBackup allows you to select a combination of files, folders with files, or entire
drives to restore.
File Permissions and Open Files
File permissions require write permission on the destination folder in order to
restore a file. A file will not be restored when a file with the identical name is
open on the NetBackup client.
Access Control Lists
If the access control list to a file on a Windows NT system has changed since the
file was backed up, the file will be restored by NetBackup as follows:
• A user that has been granted access to the file since the backup will not
have access to the file after the restore
• A user that has had access to the file removed since the backup will again
have access after the file is restored
If the access control list has changed since the backup, it will be restored to what
it was at the time of the backup.
Server Directed Restore
The administrator on the NetBackup master server can direct restores to any
NetBackup client (regardless of which NetBackup client the files came from).
Refer to the NetBackup System Administrator’s Guide - UNIX or the NetBackup
System Administrator’s Guide - Windows NT Server for details.
A client can prohibit server directed restores by clearing the Allow Server-Directed
Restores: option on the General property sheet.

NetBackup User’s Guide - Microsoft Windows

User Directed Restores
You can start a restore operation at any time. Restored folders and drives include
all files that were backed up or archived during a range of backups. NetBackup
is also able to perform an alternate-client restore and a true image restore.
Alternate Client Restore
Files or folders, that were backed up or archived from one NetBackup client, can
be restored to a different NetBackup client. This is possible only if the
NetBackup administrator has configured the NetBackup master server to allow
alternate client restores. Refer to the NetBackup System Administrator’s Guide UNIX or the NetBackup System Administrator’s Guide - Windows NT Server for
details. Also refer to "NetBackup Restore Options for System Administrators"
on page 109 for details on using the NetBackup Browser on the NetBackup
server for alternate client restores.
Restore from True Image Backup
A Restore from True Image Backup can be performed only on server directed
backups and archives in which the True Image Restore Information attribute has
been set. Refer to the NetBackup System Administrator’s Guide - UNIX or the
NetBackup System Administrator’s Guide - Windows NT Server for details.
A true image restore of a folder, by default, restores the folder so its contents are
exactly what they were at the time of the most recent server directed full backup
or incremental backup. Files deleted prior to the specified backup are not
restored.
During a true image restore of a folder, NetBackup determines which files
belong in the folder and then reconstructs it by using the most recent backup of
these files.
NetBackup does not allow a true image restore that is based on the time of a user
operation. However, NetBackup does use the backups from a user directed
operation if they are more recent than the latest server directed full backup or
incremental backup.
A true image restore is the best choice if, for example, you have recently cleaned
up a folder by deleting unwanted files and now want to restore the latest version
without having to repeat your cleanup. It is also possible to restore the true
image of an earlier version of a folder.

Advanced Restore Procedures
The following is a detailed explanation of how to perform advanced restores.
Selecting Specific Backup Dates to Restore
By default, the NetBackup Restore window shows the files and folders that were
backed up from the time of the last full backup to the most-recent backup. If the
client belongs to more than one 1class, the default display starts with the last full
backup that occurred first. For example, assume that the client belongs to
ClassW1 and ClassW2. Full backups occur for both of them-- ClassW1’s most
recent full backup occurred on Feb. 2 and ClassW2’s most recent full occurred on
Feb. 10. The display shows files ranging from the time of the ClassW1 full
backup on Feb. 2.
The default range will satisfy the majority of your needs to restore files. There
will be times, however, when you must restore a file that was not backed up
during the default time period. For example, a file that was deleted prior to the
last full backup does not appear in the default display. In this case, you must use
the NetBackup History pane to select a backup that contains the file.
1. A NetBackup class defines the backup policies for a specific group of one or more clients that have similar
backup requirements. The NetBackup system administrator configures the class for your PC.

Search Procedure
1. Open the NetBackup Restore window.
2. Click Show All Backups on the View menu to display all copies of files and
folders from all of the backups. Show Most Recent Backup will display the
most recent copy of the file or folder.
3. Select the images, from the NetBackup History pane, that you believe
contain the files and folders you want to restore.
4. Narrow the search range as much as possible to speed up your search.
• Select a specific backup image in the NetBackup History pane. Initiate the
search by clicking the item.
• To select a range of backup images, select the first one in the range and
then, while holding the Shift key, select the last one in the range. In this
case, NetBackup searches all the backup images in the selected range.
The range search will start after the second image is selected.
• Cancel previous selections by selecting another backup.
5. Click Search Backups... from the Restore menu to open the Search Backups
dialog box.

6. Enter the search path that you want NetBackup to use in its search for files
and folders.
The number of files you can list during a search is limited by the amount of
free memory you have on your computer. If you reach the limit, modify the
date or file path parameters to narrow the scope of the search.
By default, the search dialog box shows the information for the folder that
is currently selected in the All Folders pane of the NetBackup Restore
window.
7. Click Search to start the search. When the search is complete, NetBackup
updates the NetBackup Restore window.

Restore an Earlier Version of a Folder
Note: This procedure will restore all files that were backed up during the
range of backup dates. This includes files that were deleted from your on-line
folder after they were backed up. If you do not want the deleted files, refer to
"Restoring a True Image of a Folder" on page 34.
1. Open the NetBackup Restore window.
2. Open the backup NetBackup History pane.
If the NetBackup History pane is not open, click and drag the horizontal
splitter bar down.
3. Select backup images from the NetBackup History pane for the dates of the
backed up files or folders you want to restore.
NetBackup will search the backup images, and display the contents of the
backup images in the All Folders and Contents of ’<folder>’ panes.
To restore a version of a folder that existed prior to the last full backup,
select only the backups that include the desired version of the folder.
To further narrow your search for a specific folder, file or keyword, go to
Step a.
a. Click Search Backups... from the Restore menu to open the Search Backups

Restoring a True Image of a Folder
You can restore a true image of a folder only if the NetBackup class that is
backing up your files and folders is configured to collect true image restore
information prior to backup. If in doubt, ask your NetBackup administrator.
1. Open the NetBackup Restore window.
If you get a No Entity Found message at this point, notify the
administrator. The TIR option on the NetBackup server must be set before
you can perform a true image restore. A backup with the TIR option set
needs to exist before a TIR restore can happen.
2. Make sure the root folder is selected.
3. In the All Folders pane of the NetBackup Restore (True Image) window,
double-click the parent of the folder you want to restore.
The double-click updates the NetBackup Restore (True Image) window to
show the folders that are available for true image restores. Notice that the
lists show only folders. Individual files do not appear because true image
restores are intended only for restoring entire folders. To list or select
individual files, use Restore from Backup.
If NetBackup cannot find any folders, check the Search Folder: setting in the
Search Backups dialog box. Also check the range of backups that you are
searching (backup history pane). If all of these settings are correct and no
folders are found, ask the administrator to see if the NetBackup class that is
backing up your files and folders is configured to collect true image restore
information.
4. Select the date range of backups that NetBackup will search in order to find
the desired folder.
It is best to leave the backup selection at the default date range unless you
are restoring a version of the folder that existed before the last full backup
or incremental backup.
5. Select the folder you want to restore by marking it in the Contents of
’<folder>’ pane of the NetBackup Restore (True Image) window (you must
select from this side of the window). By default, NetBackup restores the
folder to its original location.
34
NetBackup User’s Guide - Microsoft Windows

Note: When a file in the folder has the same filename as a file in the true
image backup, NetBackup will delete the file from the folder and replace, or
restore, the file from the true image backup. NetBackup will not delete files
from the folder that are not in the true image restore.

NetBackup Client Job Tracker Dialog Box
To open the NetBackup Client Job Tracker dialog right click on the NetBackup
Client icon in the system tray and select Details. If Details is disabled, there have
not been any backups or restores since the NetBackup Client Job Tracker was
started. If the NetBackup Client icon is not in the system tray, see "Start the
Browser" on page 8 for information on starting the Job Tracker.
NetBackup Client Job Tracker’s purpose is to inform the user that a backup or
restore is being done on the client machine. The NetBackup Client Job Tracker
gives an estimate of the size of the job. It is not intended to replace the View
Status dialog box available through the NetBackup Browser or the Activity
Monitor available through the NetBackup Server.
Once the NetBackup Client Job Tracker is started, it reports on server directed
operations, scheduled operations, and user operations. When the NetBackup
Client Job Tracker is shut down, it "forgets" about the jobs it has been tracking
(this includes logging off the system).
102
NetBackup User’s Guide - Microsoft Windows

Job Tracker only reports on the status of a backup as it is running on the client.
Once a backup is sent to the NetBackup Server, it will not update the status of
that job. Example: the client sends all of the data to be backed up to the server
successfully. It reports the backup status as successful. Later an error occurs on
the server which causes the backup to fail, the status shown by the Job Tracker is
not updated.

Free Browse
The Free Browse feature allows users without restore privileges to restore from
scheduled backups. In previous versions of NetBackup, when a scheduled
backup was performed by a system administrator using a root user id, the client
user was not able to restore from that backup. The Free Browse feature allows
the user to use a scheduled backup to restore files. The user will be able to
restore only those files to which they have write access.
There are three different settings - Use, Deny, and Allow.
• When the client is set to Use, the user will be allowed to browse scheduled
backups if the NetBackup server is set to Allow or Use.
• When the client is set to Deny, the user will not be allowed to browse
backups no matter how the NetBackup server is configured.
• If the client is set to Allow, the user will be able to browse scheduled
backups if the NetBackup server is set to Use.
The NetBackup master server setting is configured using the bpclient
command.
Note: By default, the NetBackup master server setting is set to Allow.
To set Use:
# bpclient <clientname> -free_browse 2
To set Deny:
# bpclient <clientname> -free_browse 1
To set Allow:
# bpclient <clientname> -free_browse 0
To verify the configuration:
# bpclient <clientname> -L

The Free Browse feature will only be used when either the NetBackup client or

Deny it. By default, all users get the Allow privilege.
In order to make use of the feature on the client, two registry keys need to be
created using the NT regedt32.exe utility.
1. Use the registry editor to create the following two keys.
’HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\
SOFTWARE\
VERITAS\
NetBackup\
CurrentVersion\
Security\
FreeBrowse\
Use’
and
’HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\

2. Set the user share permissions on each key.
3. Enter a data value for each key with the name of Flag (type = DWORD).
Only when a key has a non-zero Flag value will that privilege be turned on.
If both of the Flag values are zero, then all users will get the Allow
privilege.
For example:
• If USERA has read access to the Deny key and the Flag value is non-zero,
then USERA will get the Deny privilege.
• If USERA has read access to the Use key and the Flag value is non-zero,
then USERA will get the Use privilege.
• If USERA has read access to both the Use and Deny keys and they both
have Flag values of non-zero, then USERA will get the Use privilege.
• If USERA has read access to both the Use and Deny keys and the Use key
has a Flag value of zero and the Deny key has a Flag value of non-zero,
then USERA will get the Deny privilege.
• If USERA does not have any access to either the Use and Deny keys, then
USERA will get the Allow privilege no matter what the values of Flag.

Perform Incrementals This parameter should be changed only by a system administrator.
Based on Archive Bit: Select this check box to have NetBackup include files in an
incremental backup only if their archive bit is set. The system sets
this bit whenever a file is changed and it will remain set until
NetBackup clears it. A full backup always clears the archive bit. A
differential-incremental backup clears the archive bit if the file is
successfully backed up within the number of seconds indicated by
Clear_Archive_Bit_Incr_Wait. A cumulative-incremental
backup or user backup has no effect on the archive bit.
Clear this checkbox to have NetBackup include a file in an
incremental backup only if the file’s datetime stamp has been
changed since the last backup. For a differential-incremental
backup, NetBackup compares the file’s timestamp against the last
full backup. For a cumulative-incremental backup, NetBackup
compares the timestamp against the last full backup or
incremental backup.
If you install or copy files from another computer, the new files
retain the datetime stamp of the originals. If the original date is
before the last backup date on this computer, then the new files
will not be backed up until the next full backup.
Windows 95/98 and Windows NT clients use the create and
modify datetime stamp.

Syntax Rules for Exclude Lists and Include Lists
Syntax Rules
The following syntax rules apply to exclude lists and include lists.
• Only one pattern per line is allowed.
• The following meta or wildcard characters are recognized:
[]
?
*
• To use the wildcard characters literally (that is, as non wildcard characters),
precede them with a backslash (\). For example, assume that the brackets in
the following example are not being used as wildcards:
\home\abc\fun[ny[name
In your exclude list, precede the brackets with a backslash as in
\home\abc\fun\[ny\[name
to have NetBackup interpret the brackets literally.
Note: Note that a backslash (\) acts as an escape character only when it
precedes a wildcard as in the above example. This means that NetBackup
normally interprets a backslash literally and it is a legal character to use in
pathnames.
• Spaces are considered legal characters. Be careful to omit extra spaces
unless they are part of the file name.
For example, if you want to exclude a file named
C:\home\testfile (with no extra space character at the end)
and your exclude list entry is
C:\home\testfile (with an extra space character at the end)
NetBackup will not be able to find the file until you delete the extra space
from the end of the file name.
128
NetBackup User’s Guide - Microsoft Windows
A
• End a file path with \ to exclude only folders with that path name (for
example, C:\home\test\). If the pattern does not end in \ (for example,
C:\usr\test) NetBackup excludes both files and folders with that path
name.
• To exclude all files with a given name, regardless of their folder path, just
enter the name without a preceding slash. For example:
test
rather than
C:\test
This is equivalent to prefixing the file pattern with
C:\
C:\*\
C:\*\*\
C:\*\*\*\
and so on.
System Administrator
129
A
Example of an Exclude List
If an exclude list has the following entries:
C:\home\doe\john
C:\home\doe\abc\
C:\home\*\test
C:\*\temp
temp
the following are excluded from server directed backups:
• The file or folder named C:\home\doe\john.
• The folder C:\home\doe\abc (because the exclude entry ends with \).
• All files or folders named test that are two levels below home.
• All files or folders named temp that are two levels below the root.
• All files or folders named temp at any level.

NetBackup Commands
B
This section describes commands specific to the NetBackup product. Execute
these commands in an MS-DOS window so you can see the results.
The following are special conventions used in the command descriptions.
• Brackets [ ] mean that the enclosed command line component is optional.
• A vertical bar (or pipe) symbol | separates optional arguments from which
the user can choose. For example, assume that a command has the
following format:
command [arg1 | arg2]
Here, the user can choose either arg1 or arg2 (but not both).
• Italics indicate that the information is user supplied. For example, the user
supplies class, schedule, and filename in the following command:
bpbackup -c class -s schedule filename
• An ellipses (...) means that you can repeat the previous parameter. For
example, consider the following command:
bpbackup [-S master_server [,master_server,...]] filename
Here, the -S option requires the first master server name. Additional names
can be added, separated by commas and followed by a file name as in:
bpbackup -S mars,coyote,shark,minnow memofile.doc

bparchive
NAME
bparchive - archive files to the NetBackup server
SYNOPSIS
install_path\NetBackup\bin\bparchive [-c class] [-s schedule] [-S
master_server [,master_server,...]] [-t class_type] [-L progress_log] [w [hh:mm:ss]] [-help] [-k "keyword_phrase"] -f listfile |
filenames
DESCRIPTION
bparchive processes files that you list on the command line or in the file you
specify with the -f listfile option. Any file path entered can be a file or
directory name. If the list of files includes a directory, bparchive archives all
files and subdirectories of that directory starting at the directory itself.
By default, you are returned to the system prompt after bparchive is
successfully submitted. The command works in the background and does not
return completion status directly to you. The -w option lets you change this
behavior so bparchive works in the foreground and returns completion
status after a specified time period.
bparchive writes its informative and error messages to a progress-log file.
You must create this file prior to the execution of the bparchive command
and then specify it with the -L progress_log option. If bparchive cannot
archive any of the requested files or directories, you can use the progress log to
determine the reason for the failure.
If you create an install_path\NetBackup\logs\bparchive\ directory with
write access, bparchive creates an activity log file in this directory that you
can use for troubleshooting.
The following restrictions apply to this command:
• To archive files with the bparchive command, you must have permission
to delete the file and the file must not be read-only. Otherwise, NetBackup
saves the files but does not delete them from the disk.
• bparchive does not archive the "." or ".." directory entries, and does not
archive disk-image backups.

You can optionally specify a wait time in hours, minutes, and
seconds. The maximum wait time you can specify is 23:59:59. If the
wait time expires before the archive is complete, the command exits
with a timeout status. The archive, however, still completes on the
server.
If you use -w without specifying the wait time or if you specify a
value of 0, NetBackup waits indefinitely for the completion status.
-help
Displays a synopsis of command usage when it is the only option
on the command line.
-k keyword_phrase
Specifies a keyword phrase that NetBackup associates with the
image created by this archive operation. You can then restore the
image by specifying the keyword phrase with the -k option on the
bprestore command.
The keyword phrase is a textual description of the archive that is a
maximum of 128 characters in length. All printable characters are
permitted including space (" ") and period ("."). Enclose the phrase
in double quotes ("...") or single quotes (‘...’).
134

B
The default keyword phrase is the null (empty) string.
-f listfile
Specifies a file (listfile) containing a list of files to be archived and
can be used instead of the filenames option. In listfile, place each file
path on a separate line.
The format required for the file list depends on whether the files
have spaces or returns in the names.
To archive files that do not have spaces or returns in the names, use
this format:
filepath
Where filepath is the path to the file you are archiving. For example:
c:\Programs
c:\winnt
c:\documents\old_memos
To archive files that have spaces or returns in the names, use this
format:
filepathlen filepath
Where filepath is the path to the file you are archiving and filepathlen
is the number of characters in the file path.
For example:
11 c:\Programs
8 c:\winnt
22 c:\documents\old memos
filenames
Names one or more files to be archived and can be used instead of
the -f option.
Any files that you specify must be listed at the end, after all other

NAME
bpbackup - back up files to the NetBackup server
SYNOPSIS
install_path\NetBackup\bin\bpbackup [-c class] [-s schedule] [-S
master_server [,master_server,...]] [-t class_type] [-L progress_log] [w [hh:mm:ss]] [-help] [-k "keyword_phrase"] -f listfile |

install_path\NetBackup\bin\bpbackup -i [-c class] [-h hostname] [-s
schedule] [-S master_server [,master_server,...]] [-t class_type] [-w
[hh:mm:ss]] [-k "keyword_phrase"]
DESCRIPTION
bpbackup starts either of the following:
• A user backup that is the equivalent to what is performed by using the
interface on the client (see the first form of the command shown above).
This type of backup can be started from any NetBackup client in order to
back up files from that client.
The bpbackup command processes the files that you list on the command
line or in the file that you specify with the -f listfile option. A file path can
be a file or directory name. If the named files include a directory, bpbackup
backs up all files and subdirectories of that directory starting at the
directory itself.
• An immediate-manual backup of a client (see the second form of the
command shown above). This variation requires the -i option on the
bpbackup command and is available only to the administrator on the
master server. It is the equivalent starting a manual backup from the
NetBackup administrator’s interface. Use the -h option to specify the host.
The following restrictions apply to this command:
• You must be the owner of the file or an administrator to back up a file with
bpbackup.
• You can back up files and directories owned by other users if you have the
necessary permissions.
NetBackup Commands
137
B
• bpbackup does not back up the "." or ".." directory entries.
By default, you are returned to the system prompt after bpbackup is
successfully submitted. The command works in the background and does not
return completion status directly to you. The -w option lets you change this
behavior so the command works in the foreground and returns completion
status after a specified time period.
bpbackup writes informative and error messages to a progress-log file if you
create the file prior to the execution of the bpbackup command and then
specify the file with the -L progress_log option. If bpbackup cannot back up
the requested files or directories, use the progress log to determine the reason
for the failure.
If you create a directory named install_path\NetBackup\logs\bpbackup
with write access, bpbackup creates an activity log file in this directory that
can be used for troubleshooting.
OPTIONS
-c class
Names the class to use for the backup.
If this option is not specified, the action depends on the type of
backup as follows:
For a user backup, NetBackup uses the first class it finds that
includes the client and a user backup schedule.
For an immediate-manual backup (-i option), NetBackup attempts
to back up the specified files in all classes.
-i
Starts an immediate-manual backup. This is the equivalent of
starting a manual backup from the NetBackup administrator
interface. You must be the administrator on a NetBackup server to
use the -i option.
-h hostname
Use this option only in conjunction with the -i option. It names the
client host on which to run the backup. If it is not specified,
NetBackup runs the backup on all clients in the class.
-s schedule
138
NetBackup User’s Guide - Microsoft Windows
B
Names the schedule to use for the backup. If it is not specified, the
NetBackup server uses the first user backup schedule it finds for
the client in the class it is using (see the -c option).
-S master_server [,master_server,...]
Specifies the name(s) of the NetBackup master server(s). The
default is the server designated as current on the Servers tab of the
NetBackup Configuration dialog box. To display this dialog box,
start the user interface on the client and click Configure on the
Actions menu.
-t class_type
Specifies the class type as follows:
0 = Standard
3 = Apollo-wbak
4 = Oracle
6 = Informix-On-BAR
7 = Sybase
10 = NetWare
11 = DataTools-SQL-BackTrack

-L progress_log
Specifies the name of an existing file in which to write progress
information.
For example: c:\proglog
The default is to not use a progress log.
-w [hh:mm:ss]
Causes NetBackup to wait for a completion status from the server
before returning you to the system prompt.
You can optionally specify a wait time in hours, minutes, and
seconds. The maximum wait time you can specify is 23:59:59. If the
wait time expires before the backup is complete, the command exits
with a timeout status. The backup, however, still completes on the
server.
If you use -w without specifying a wait time or if you specify a
value of 0, NetBackup waits indefinitely for the completion status.
-help
Displays a synopsis of command usage when it is the only option
on the command line.
-k keyword_phrase
Specifies a keyword phrase that NetBackup associates with the
image being created by this backup operation. You can then restore
the image by specifying the keyword phrase with the -k option on
the bprestore command.
If you use the -i option with -k, NetBackup establishes an
association between the keyword phrase and the backup class and
image.
The keyword phrase is a textual description of the backup that is a
maximum of 128 characters in length. All printable characters are
permitted including space (" ") and period ("."). Enclose the phrase
in double quotes ("...") or single quotes ( ‘...’).
The default keyword phrase is the null (empty) string.

NetBackup User’s Guide - Microsoft Windows
B
-f listfile
Specifies a file (listfile) containing a list of files to be backed up. This
option can be used instead of the filenames option, but cannot be
used with the -i option. List each file on a separate line.
The format required for the file list depends on whether the files
have spaces or returns in the names.
To back up files that do not have spaces or returns in the names, use
this format:
filepath
Where filepath is the path to the file you are backing up. For
example:
c:\Programs
c:\winnt
c:\documents\old_memos
To back up files that have spaces or returns in the names, use this
format:
filepathlen filepath
Where filepath is the path to the file you are backing up and
filepathlen is the number of characters in the file path.
For example:
11 c:\Programs
8 c:\winnt
22 c:\documents\old memos
filenames
Names one or more files to be backed up. This option can be used
instead of the -f option, but cannot be used with the -i option.
Any files that you specify must be listed at the end, following all
other options.

DESCRIPTION
bplist shows a list of previously archived or backed up files according to the
options that you specify. You can choose the file or directory and the time
period that you want the listing to cover. Directories can be recursively
displayed to a specified depth.
The list shows only the files that you have read access to. You also must own or
have read access to all directories in the file paths. You can list files that were
backed up or archived by another client only if you are validated to do so by
the NetBackup administrator.
If you create directory install_path\NetBackup\logs\bplist\ with write
access, bplist creates an activity log file in this directory that you can use for
troubleshooting.
The output of bplist goes to standard output.

bprestore
NAME
bprestore - restores files from the NetBackup server
SYNOPSIS
install_path\NetBackup\bin\bprestore [-A | -B] [-K] [-l | -H | -y]
[-r] [-T] [-L progress_log] [-R rename_file] [-C client] [-D client] [S master_server] [-t class_type] [-s mm/dd/yy [hh:mm:ss]] [-e
mm/dd/yy [hh:mm:ss]] [-w [hh:mm:ss]] [-k "keyword_phrase"] -f
listfile | filenames
DESCRIPTION
bprestore lets users restore a backed up or archived file or list of files. You
can also name directories to restore. If you include a directory name,
bprestore restores all files and subdirectories of that directory.
By default, you are returned to the system prompt after bprestore is
successfully submitted. The command works in the background and does not
return completion status directly to you. The -w option lets you change this
behavior so bprestore works in the foreground and returns completion
status after a specified time period.
The bprestore command restores the file from the most recent backups
within the time period you specify. bprestore overwrites any file of the same
name that already exists on the local client disk, unless you include the -K
option. It is also possible to restore files that were backed up or archived on
another client (-C option). You must be validated by the NetBackup
administrator to restore from other clients.
Use the bplist command to display information on the files and directories
that were backed up or archived.
bprestore writes informative and error messages to a progress-log file if you
create the file prior to the execution of the bprestore command and then
specify the file with the -L progress_log option. If bprestore cannot restore
the requested files or directories, you can use the progress log to find the
reason for the failure.
150
NetBackup User’s Guide - Microsoft Windows
B
For detailed troubleshooting information, create a directory named
install_path\NetBackup\logs\bprestore with write access. bprestore
then creates an activity log file in this directory.
The following restrictions apply to bprestore:
• You can restore files and directories that you own and those owned by other
users if you have read access. You need write access to another user’s
directories and files to restore that user’s files to their original location.
• The operating system restricts the number of files and directories that you
can specify on a single bprestore command line. If this is a problem, use
the -f option to restore the files.
OPTIONS
-A | -B
Specifies whether to restore from archives (-A) or backups (-B). The
default is -B.
-K
Specifying this option causes bprestore to keep existing files
rather than writing over them when restoring files with the same
name. The default is to overwrite existing files.
Note: The -l | -H | -y options apply only when restoring UNIX files to a
UNIX system.
-l | -H | -y
Specifying -l renames the targets of UNIX links by using the -R
rename_file option in the same way as when renaming files.
Specifying -H renames UNIX hard links by using the -R rename_file
option in the same way as when renaming files. Soft links are
unchanged.
Specifying -y renames UNIX soft links by using the -R rename_file
option in the same way as when renaming files. Hard links are
unchanged.
See Example 5 in the EXAMPLES section.
-r
Specifying this option restores disk images instead of file systems.
-L progress_log
NetBackup Commands
151
B
Specifies the name of an existing file in which to write progress
information.
For example: c:\proglog
The default is to not use a progress log.
-R rename_file
Specifies the name of a file with name changes for alternate-path
restores.
For example: bprestore -F c:\renamef C:\testfile
Use the following form for entries within the file:
change backup_filepath to restore_filepath
The file paths must start with / (slash) and the first backup_filepath
that is matched is replaced with the restore_filepath string. The
default is to restore using the original path.
For example, the following entry renames C:\users\fred to
C:\usr\fred2:
change /C/users/fred to /C/users/fred2
-C client
Specifies a client name to use for finding backups or archives from
which to restore files. This name must be as it appears in the
NetBackup database. The default is the current client name.
-D client
Specifies a destination client. This can be done by an administrator
on the master server in order to direct the restored files to a
machine other than the client specified with the -C option.
-S master_server
Specifies the name of the NetBackup server. The default is the
server designated as current on the Servers tab of the NetBackup
Configuration dialog box. To display this dialog box, start the user
interface on the client and click Configure on the Actions menu.
-t class_type
Specifies the class type as follows:
0 = Standard

Specifies the start and end date range for the listing. The
bprestore command restores only files from backups or archives
that occurred within the specified start and end date range.
-s specifies a start date and time for the restore window.
bprestore restores files only from backups or archives that
occurred at or after the specified date and time. Use the following
format:
NetBackup Commands
153
B
mm/dd/yy [hh[:mm[:ss]]]
The valid range of dates are from 01/01/70 00:00:00 to 01/19/2038
03:14:07. The default start date is 01/01/70 00:00:00.
-e specifies an end date and time for the restore window.
bprestore restores only files in backups or archives that occurred
at or before the specified date and time. Use the same format as for
the start date and time.
The end backup date and time do not need to be exact. The
bprestore command restores the file that has the specified
backup date and time or the file that is the most recent backup
preceding the end date and time. The default is the current date
and time.
If you do not specify either -s or -e, bprestore restores the most
recently backed up version of the file.
-T
Specifies a true-image restore, where only files and directories that
existed in the last true-image backup are restored. This option is
useful only if true-image backups were performed. If this option is
not specified, all files and directories meeting the specified criteria
are restored, even if they were deleted.
-w [hh:mm:ss]
Causes NetBackup to wait for a completion status from the server
before returning you to the system prompt.
You can optionally specify a wait time in hours, minutes, and
seconds. The maximum wait time you can specify is 23:59:59. If the
wait time expires before the restore is complete, the command exits
with a timeout status. The restore, however, still completes on the
server.
Specifying 0 or not specifying a time, means wait indefinitely for
the completion status.
-k "keyword_phrase"
Specifies a keyword phrase for NetBackup to use when searching
for backups or archives from which to restore files. The phrase must
match the one that was previously associated with backup or
archive by the -k option of the bpbackup or bparchive
command.
154

quotes (‘...’).
The default keyword phrase is the null (empty) string.
-f listfile
Specifies a file (listfile) containing a list of files to be restored and
can be used instead of the filenames option. In listfile, list each file
path on a separate line.
The format required for the file list depends on whether the files
have spaces or newlines in the names.
To restore files that do not have spaces or newlines in the names,
use this format:
filepath
Where filepath is the path to the file that you are restoring. For
example:
Note: Use upper case for the drive letter. For example, C:\NetBackup\Log1.
C:\programs
C:\winnt
C:\documents\old_memos
NetBackup Commands
155
B
To restore files that have spaces or newlines in the names, use one
of the following formats:
filepathlen filepath
filepathlen filepath start_date_time end_date_time
filepathlen filepath -s datetime -e datetime
Where:
filepath is the path to the file you are restoring.
filepathlen is the total number of characters in the file path.
start_date_time and end_date_time are the decimal number of
seconds since 01/01/70 00:00:00.
datetime is the same as the command line (mm/dd/yy [hh[:mm[:ss]]]).
The start and end date and time specified on the command line is
used unless a line in listfile overrides it. The dates may change from
line to line.
The following is an example that uses filepathlen filepath:
11 C:\programs
8 C:\winnt
22 C:\documents\old memos
filenames
Names one or more files to be restored and can be used instead of
the -f option.
Any files that you specify must be listed at the end, following all
other options. You must also specify absolute file paths.
Use upper case for the drive letter. For example,
C:\NetBackup\log1.
