NetVault 11.4.5 - CLI Reference Guide

Introduction Getting started Using the command-line utilities Using the nvreport utility


Changes NetVault Backup password for server or client on which this utility is run. This utility is available in the <NetVault Backup home>\bin directory.

\ and spaces
On Linux shell: \<\>\&#\|/\"\':\*.-\`\(\)[]{}\$@?
On Windows command prompt: "<>&#|/""':*.-`()[]{}$@?".


Enables CLI backups and generation of CLI-based reports for plug-ins that require the use of database-related utility (for example, “onbar” for Informix database users and “rman” for Oracle). For more information, see the relevant plug-in user’s guide.

Table 81. nvpluginaccess


Specifies the name of the NetVault Backup Client.


Specifies the name of the NetVault Backup user account that you want to use with this command.

The specified user account must be granted all privileges in NetVault Backup.


Specifies the password for the user account.


Use this utility to change the password for the PostgreSQL database superuser.

(The password is initially set when you install or upgrade the NetVault Backup Server software.)

Table 82. nvpgdbpasswd

store <password>

Updates the PostgreSQL database superuser password in the pgdb.cfg file (NetVault Backup configuration file). It does not change the superuser password in the PostgreSQL Database itself; it just updates the pgdb.cfg file.

You can use this option to update the password in the configuration file after the password is changed in the database using any PostgreSQL native tool (for example, the psql utility).

change <current password> <new password>

Changes the database superuser password both in the PostgreSQL DB and in the pgdb.cfg file.

You must specify both the current password and the new password with this option.

\ and spaces
On Linux shell: \<\>\&#\|/\"\':\*.-\`\(\)[]{}\$@?
On Windows command prompt: "<>&#|/""':*.-`()[]{}$@?".


Allows you to generate and view canned reports from the command-line interface. For more information about using the reporting functionality, see Using the nvreport utility.
