This is not always true. For any processes that are always up (bpdbm, etc.), you’ll need to restart NBU. For other processes that are started per job (bptm, bpdm), then it is correct that they will re-read the bp.conf file and pick up the changed verbosity.
You can have NBU reread the bp.conf file by issuing this command: bprdreq -rereadconfig A side note – bp.conf only applies to legacy processes (bpxxxxx) and that log to /usr/openv/netbackup/logs. You also should check the new vxlog command to make sure it is logging at a low level. These are all the new processes (nbxxxx) and log into /usr/openv/logs. I don’t have the full syntax handy, sorry :D, but it’s vxlogcfg that you’ll need to look for. -Rusty *From:* veritas-bu-boun...@mailman.eng.auburn.edu [mailto: veritas-bu-boun...@mailman.eng.auburn.edu] *On Behalf Of *nbuser *Sent:* Wednesday, August 24, 2011 9:57 PM *To:* Lightner, Jeff *Cc:* VERITAS-BU@MAILMAN.ENG.AUBURN.EDU *Subject:* Re: [Veritas-bu] Netbackup VERBOSE in bp.conf Verbose =5 is highest and you dont have to restart the services.
