I am supposed to be seeing a backup report yet I am getting all this screen noise.......

Here is my code that I hacked..
#!/usr/bin/perl bpstart_notify.loc1_server1_nt.bat @REM this script is called by NetBackup when a backup is initiated @REM this script: @REM receives 4 parameters, clientname, classname, schedname and sc +hedtype @REM must be executable by a user with Administrator rights @REM should exit with 0 upon successful completion @REM @REM If this script will not complete within a few seconds, you should + set @REM the BPSTART_TIMEOUT in the NetBackup configuration gui on the ser +ver. @REM You should also be aware that the time taken by this script will +delay @REM the initiation of other client's backups. @REM @REM - This script only runs on NT 4.0 and succeeding versions of NT. + You must @REM - have command extensions enabled. Check the following registry +entry: @REM - HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Command Processor\EnableEx +tensions @REM - @REM - It should be set to 0x1 or you may have problems running this s +cript. @setlocal ENABLEEXTENSIONS @set LISTPATHS="%~dp0\goodies\listpaths" @for /F "delims=|" %%p in ('%LISTPATHS% /s NB_MAIL_SCRIPT') do @set NB +_MAIL_SCRIPT="%%p" @set OUTF="d:\srvapps\veritas\backupresults\bpstart_notify.loc1_server +1_nt.txt" @REM - Get date and time. @REM @for /F "tokens=1*" %%p in ('date /T') do @set DATE=%%p %%q @for /F %%p in ('time /T') do @set DATE=%DATE% %%p @REM @echo "This is a start_notify script" > %OUTF% @REM @REM Unremark the following line and add you batch file, command file + etc. net stop "nai epolicy orchestrator agent" >> %OUTF% net stop "network associates mcshield" >> %OUTF% net stop "network associates alert manager" >> %OUTF% ~

Here is the screen noise...

I have 22 years experience and have never seen anything like this! I am beginning to wonder if PERL even works!
