Thread: End of job batch file?

  1. End of job batch file?


    I want to run a batch file before and after a backup on a single client.
    I've figured out how to do it before, but can't get the after to work. What
    is the exact file I need to modify and what would be the correct syntax to
    say start C:\posttest.bat at the end of the backup? Thank you.

  2. Re: End of job batch file?

    You would use the bpstart_notify and bp_endnotify files. Here is a
    technote on their usage:

    Keith,

    NetBackup looks for the existence of bpstart_notify.bat and bpend_notify.bat
    and will run them at the start and end respectively of the backup job. We
    use this construct to shut down Oracle DBs [we haven't implemented hot backup
    yet], run the backup job, and bring up the DB when done.

    Look in the manual for the exact location on the client.
