    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.
