    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

    thank you

    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?


    Accepted Solution

    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
