On Windows systems, bpcd is a communications daemon that the NetBackup
Client Service bpinetd(1M) activates. Typically, on UNIX systems
inetd(1M) activates bpcd.
The bpcd daemon accepts requests from NetBackup servers. Requests
include the following:
· Initiate backup and restore jobs
· Get NetBackup configuration parameters
· Set NetBackup configuration parameters
When you install NetBackup on a UNIX client, the installation process
typically adds entries for bpcd to /etc/services and /etc/inetd.conf.
The services entry looks like the following:
bpcd 13782/tcp bpcd
The inetd.conf entry on UNIX looks like the following:
bpcd stream tcp nowait root /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bpcd bpcd
Available only on UNIX clients. Instructs bpcd to run contin-
uously rather than started by inetd.
Available only on UNIX clients and implies -standalone. This
option prevents bpcd from forking and does not disconnect it
from standard input, output, and error.
Available only on UNIX clients and implies -standalone. Spec-
ifies the port number where bpcd listens for requests. The
default is the bpcd entry in: /etc/services.
Available only on UNIX clients and implies -standalone.
Specifies the local network interface that bpcd accepts con-
nections from. Default is to accept connections from all
