How do I find out which tapes were used for a NetBackup backup?

If you would like to find out which tape(s) were used for a specific backup, you can use the bpimagelist command.

bpimagelist -U -client -d -e -media

For example, if your client was named and you wanted to search for backups from January 1, 2011 at 12:00 PM and January 2, 2011 at 12:00 PM, you would run the command as follows:

bpimagelist -U -client -d 01/01/2011 12:00:00 -e 01/02/2011 12:00:00 -media

The resulting output will be:

Media ID Last Written Server
