  • How was this pull request tested?
    Not yet tested by me in any way and
    I cannot test all those affected code parts,
    in particulart not the changes for TSM and NBU.

  • Brief description of the changes in this pull request:
    Some general cleanup for ReaR 2.6. in all scripts
    by removing '2>/dev/null' where it makes sense
    and replacing '&>/dev/null' by '1>/dev/null' where it makes sense
    or also removing '&>/dev/null' where that seems to be better, see

could you please - if time permits - have a look at my changes in
and ideally verify that TSM still works for you with my changes?

could you please have a look at my changes in
and ideally verify that NBM NetBackup still works for you with my changes?

Hi jsmeix.

Where is your "usr/share/rear/verify/NBU/default/390_request_point_in_time_restore_parameters.sh"? I do not know how I can see it.

I "just merged" it so that things can be tested right now
as long as ReaR 2.6 is still under development.

Please report if there are regressions so that I can fix them,
ideally each one as a new and separated GitHub issue.

Hi jsmeix.

I checked the script https://raw.githubusercontent.com/rear/rear/bd51a4c001dfa1b9934c1e15c3716056fdf8d6cc/usr/share/rear/verify/NBU/default/390_request_point_in_time_restore_parameters.sh but it is very different to my script. Sorry, but I cannot help much in this topic...

Best regards.
