After making any changes to the bp.conf file on a VERITAS NetBackup (tm) server, this command can be used to reread the configuration without having to stop and restart the NetBackup daemons. This command located in:

/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/bprdreq --
bprdreq: unrecognized option --
bprdreq: [-alive] [-logstatus] [-terminate] [-setverbose]
     [-M ]
     [-rereadconfig] [-master] [-startsched]
     [-recyclelogs ] [-wakeup ]
     [-recyclejobs] [-verbose] [-suspend_cancel_all]
How to use it to reload the bp.conf configurations file:

/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/bprdreq -rereadconfig

Note: This command will only detect and incorporate some bp.conf configuration changes. Many NetBackup configuration changes, such as adding or changing a SERVER entries, MEDIA SERVER entries, require a complete stop and start of the NetBackup daemons. If the bp.conf configuration change does not take effect, then the NetBackup daemons must be restarted. But usually this command works if you change the VERBOSE setting in bp.conf in troubleshooting process.
