[Veritas-bu] Backup Audit script...

So you want a script that says on what day a backup runs?
It's no so easy to generate. It's really a function of when the window is
open AND the frequency of the backup. My archived-redo backups are 7x24
windows (with a few 1x168's I think) and a two-hour frequency. It runs 12
times a day based on this window. Still others have two open windows per
week but the frequency keeps it to running only once per week (unless
there's a backup failure the first attempt). I call these "second chance"
You might just print the policy for them:
bppllist <policy_name> -U
... or, perhaps, all policies for a given client:
bppllist -byclient <clientname> -U
and the schedule windows & frequency are there:
Type: Differential Incremental Backup
Frequency: every 1 day
Maximum MPX: 4
PFI Recovery: 0
Retention Level: 4 (2 months)
Number Copies: 1
Fail on Error: 0
Residence: (specific storage unit not required)
Volume Pool: (same as policy volume pool)
Sunday 04:00:00 --> Sunday 16:00:00
Monday 04:00:00 --> Monday 16:00:00
Tuesday 04:00:00 --> Tuesday 16:00:00
Wednesday 04:00:00 --> Wednesday 16:00:00
Thursday 04:00:00 --> Thursday 16:00:00
Saturday 04:00:00 --> Saturday 16:00:00
...It's a start. Other than that, if you've got different ideas, lots of
things are possible but you'll have to detail your question a little more.

Subject: [Veritas-bu] Backup Audit script...
Has anyone written a script to do a backup audit? We have something in
place to get information about our backups but the hardest thing to get is
the days of the week the backup runs. The user comes back and says I see my
backup is active but when does it run? Can anybody help on this?
