How to view and add NetBackup License keys using the command line and GUI ??

The "bpminlicense" utility manages a NetBackup license file. The preferred method to manage NetBackup licenses is to use the Help > License Keys panel in the NetBackup Administration Console.

Windows command location: %install_path%\VERITAS\NetBackup\bin\admincmd
UNIX command location: /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd

Options:
bpminlicense -add_keys
bpminlicense -delete_keys
bpminlicense -find_keys -verbose
bpminlicense -list_keys -verbose

-list_keys - Lists the keys in the NetBackup license file.

-verbose - Displays additional information to standard output.

-add_keys | -delete_keys | -find_keys keystring1 .. keystringn - Respectively, these options find and list, add, or delete one or more specified keystrings in the NetBackup license file.

GUI MODE:-

Go to Help in the Netbackup Administration Console and select option 




Add License Keys 




Note:- After applying the license key start and stop the Netbackup services and also stop the NETBACKUP DATABASE ( dbsrv11.exe)

C:\> programfiles\Veritas\Netbackup\bin> bpdown ----->  To stop the NBU services

Now go to TASK MANAGER√† Process√† find “dbsrv11.exe “ √† End process
After this now again start the services

C:\> programfiles\Veritas\Netbackup\bin> bpup  ----->  To start the Netbackup services
