Hi Experts,

 

Backups are getting failed to the Storage Appliance if it is gets down. So need to plan the alternate solution/automation of manual steps to avoid the manual change of storage unit in the policy. And delay in firing the Backups.

Create a Storage Unit Group and change SLP to use STUG instead of STU.

Choose appropriate failover criteria.
Extract from NBU Admin Guide I:

■ Prioritized. Choose the first storage unit in the list that is not busy, down, or out of media.
■ Failover. Choose the first storage unit in the list that is not down or out of media.
■ Round Robin. Choose the least recently selected storage unit in the list.
■ Media server load balancing. Choose a storage unit based on a capacity-managed approach.

What is the command to change a storage unit in SLP so that i can put in a batch file script that checks if one storage A is down it should switch to B or if B is down it should switch to A.

Just take note not to use STUG if you're running AIR

 

'Note: If creating an SLP for Auto Image Replication, do not select a storage unit group. Auto Image Replication does not support replicating from a storage unit group. That is, the source copy cannot be in a storage unit group.'
