Quick and Dirty NetBackup Reporting

I needed a quick way to get the statuses of my NetBackup runs on a daily basis. This works for me, but maybe because there aren't that many servers (~30) that we are backing up. I'm sure there's nicer ways to do this, but if you want something quick and dirty, I have this line in my crontab.

/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/bperror -U -backstat -s info -hoursago 24 | mail -s "Netbackup Report for `date +%D`"
