Symantec NetBackup product is a backup and recovery product designed for enterprise users. Symantec NetBackup tool can be used to perform backups of SQL Server databases, Oracle, MySQL, Sybase, PostGres Databases, flat file backups, etc, and provides various other features. Device configuration status codes appear in exit status and command output for the tpconfig and the tpautoconf commands, and in system or debug logs. Programs that call tpconfig and tpautoconf, such as media and device management user interfaces and the vmoprcmd command, also present these codes.
