My Image Cleanup job getting “partially successful” and sometime “invalid command parameter(20)”

Posted on July 14, 2011


I faced below errors on two NBU master servers on different locations while running the Image Cleanup job

1.) Partially successful [  the requested operation was partially successful(1)  ]
2.) invalid command parameter(20)”

NBU 6.5.5 on Win2003 OS

Install_path\veritas\netbackup\bin\admincmd\nbdelete -allvolumes -force 
Install_path\veritas\netbackup\bin\admincmd\bpimage -cleanup -allclients  


What does “nbdelete -allvolumes -force”….

actually do and is there any risk?

This command just delete the bad headers (which stopped been deleted) of database images which are aleady expired.
