veritas NETbackup command

i am using veritas admenistration console to control all backup operations of our servers .
we use SUN LT25 LTO library connected to a backupserver running solaris 8 .
i was wondering if there is a command that i can use from solaris so that i can activate and deactivate some policeis , rather than to always use the GUI .

there are more than a few Netbackup commands that you can use on the command line to do whatever you need or for your scripting needs ... check the Netbackup manuals ...

You can also suspend and resume scheduling jobs with the following:
nbpemreq –suspend_scheduling
nbpemreq -resume_scheduling

I deactivate and activate the policies via cron

# crontab -l | grep -i activate

0 5 * * 1-5 /usr/local/scripts/
0 14 * * 1-5 /usr/local/scripts/

# cat /usr/local/scripts/
#! /bin/sh
for i in `/usr/bin/cat /usr/local/scripts/policylist`
/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/bpplinfo $i -modify -inactive

# cat /usr/local/scripts/
#! /bin/sh
for i in `/usr/bin/cat /usr/local/scripts/policylist`
/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/bpplinfo $i -modify -active
