Usefull things to know:

Start the unix Java gui:

carbon# jnbSA

Explicitly expiring by media id:

carbon# pwd
carbon# ./bpexpdate -m 000174 -d 0
Are you SURE you want to delete 000174 y/n (n)? y

Listing the media details for a tape:

/usr/openv/volmgr/bin/vmquery -a -bx | grep $i

Listing images which have a segment on a given tape:

/usr/openv/volmgr/bin/bpimmedia -mediaid $ID -L | less

Looking back through the history:

$ bpimagelist –U –hoursago <hours> -client <backup-client>

Or you can use a date range:

$ bpimagelist –d mm/dd/yyyy 00:00:00 –e mm/dd/yyyy 00:00:00 –U –st full –client <client-name>

-d – starting date -e –ending date -st – backup type. If you exclude, all backup types are displayed.

Comparing the real robot inventory to NetBackup's inventory:

# /usr2/openv/volmgr/bin/vmcheckxxx -rt tl8 -rn 0
This command also has a -recommendcmd option which will list the explicit operations necessary to get the Netbackup inventory to match the robot's inventory. Or you could use:

Updating the Netbackup inventory from the Robot's inventory:

# /usr2/openv/volmgr/bin/vmupdate -rt tl8 -rn 2
# /usr2/openv/volmgr/bin/vmupdate -rt tld -rn 1

Checking the Catalog (DB BACKUP) configuration:

# /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/bpsyncinfo -U

Changing the Catalog (DB BACKUP) tape target:

# /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/bpsyncinfo -server komodo -id1 001689 -d1 8mm

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
