nsrlic - NetWorker license reporting command


nsrlic [ -vi ] [ -s server ]


The nsrlic command generates reports about all license information currently active on a NetWorker server. This command queries the NetWorker resource database, and formats and displays the results to standard output.

The nsrlic program reports the following information:

- The number of standard client licenses

- The number of standard client licenses used

- The number of standard client licenses borrowed by virtual client physical nodes

- The number of remaining standard client licenses

- The list of standard clients connected to the named NetWorker server

- The list of standard clients defined in the specified NetWorker server

- The number of clients, listed by platform

The nsrlic program reports the following information for virtual client physical hosts and for NDMP clients:

- The number of licenses

- The number of licenses used

- The number of remaining licenses

- The list of clients connected to the specified NetWorker server

When applications exist which require licensing, nsrlic also reports them in the same manner. In this case, however, the output will not contain any references unless there are either licenses available, or a connected client is utilizing a license count for such applications.



Selects interactive mode. In this mode, you can request different reports, refresh the information, or switch to a different server. The information is requested once, and then cached until another connect command is issued.

-s server

Selects which NetWorker server to query. By default, the server on the local system is queried.


Selects verbose mode. In addition to the number of licenses (or clients), a list of connected and defined clients is gathered and displayed.


The following commands are supported in the interactive mode:


[ server ]

Connects to the named server. By default, this is the server on the local system.


Produces a detailed report. Displays a list of connected clients (clients that have saved to NetWorker) and a list of defined clients (clients that are defined in the NetWorker server, abut not yet saved).


Displays a list of available commands.


Displays a summary report.


Is the same as online help.


Performs an immediate exit from nsrlic.


nsrlic displays a "usage" message describing the available options when characters are used that are not valid for this command.

command not found

Indicates that the attempted command is not supported.

RPC error: Remote system error

RPC error: Program not registered

Indicates that some problems were encountered while connecting to the NetWorker server on the specified system. The nsrlic command requires that the NetWorker daemons be running. Start your NetWorker daemons (nsrd) and rerun nsrlic. If nsrd is already running, you have probably reached a resource limit on the server (for example, not enough memory or no more processes).
