"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

As you know there is no self management in lower solaris version than 10
As Workaround:
you can use <install_path>\VERITAS\NetBackup\bin\admincmd\nbrbutil

Restart NetBackup services and demons With no active jobs, issue the following command:
<install_path>\VERITAS\NetBackup\bin\admincmd\nbrbutil -resetAll
Verify allocations:
<install_path>\VERITAS\NetBackup\bin\admincmd\nbrbutil -dump

What is the command to check for services running in solaris 9.  For example, svcs ntp in solaris 10 checks the status of the Network Time Protocol - what is used for Solaris 9?

there is no services check utility in solaris9 and lower versions
if you need to check ntp  is running or not , we used to query ntp demon process using
ps -ef|grep -i xntpd
or just ps -ef|grep -i ntp
then ptree for the proccess
most of demon start script where located at /etc/init.d
to start demon
/etc/init.d/<demon> start
to stop demon
/etc/init.d/<demon> stop

thank you
