    savegrp is the command which works on networker server only..to start the backup from client you should be using save command..

    hi Guna, Savegrp command is not valid on the Networker client end. You can only use Save command

    save -b "Pool Name" <saveset>

    Ex: if you want to backup specific drive ( D:\) and use the pool "LTO4FULL" then the command should be

    save -b "LTO4FULL" D:\

    Note:- If more than one Networker servers listed in the \nsr\res\servers file of the client, then you should specify this in save command with -s flag " save -s <Networker Server> -b "Pool Name" <saveset>

    All client initiated backup will be of level: manual. So no level(incr/full) has to to specified while using save command.
