Check license details:
 /opt/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/get_license_key

the problem is I have to type in  
L
for licence
Enter
to say "yes this server:

Lastly I need to push the information to a file so I can copy it down.

this is just standard veritas.

So what you are saying is that the license is not a text file and you can only get it interactively.

Try finding an option or switch that would just dump the text without expecting any further keystrokes -- non-interactive. This way you can dump the file content and redirect to any file.  Try doing man on it.

If that doesn't work, you may use "expect".  It scripts interactive terminals or utilities.

Hi,

there should be a file called "/usr/openv/var/license.txt"

Besides that, there should be a command "bpminlicense" which has a "-list_keys" option.
Here's the manpage of bpminlicense:
