I have a NetBackup 8.1 environment running on Linux with a single master media server at one site and a Linux media server at a second site.
All backups first go to the master\media server's MSDP and then duplicated to the MSDP on the media server at site 2.
For some time now, the duplicates to site2 have been very erratic dues to hardware and inter-site link problems on the media server and most of the duplicate jobs have failed, they then re-attempt and may be successful but will often fail again - I believe the nature of SLPs will mean they keep trying - which is fine as I need the data duplicated somehow.
So I now want to add a tape library to the master\media server at site 1 and duplicate the data to this rather than the over the link to site 2.
I need to get the backup images that are re-attmepting to duplicate to site 2 to now duplicate to the tape library - can this be done?
I know I can reconfigure the SLP for any new backup images , but it's the ones that are still trying to go to site 2 I want to make to the tape library. I'd rather not have to manually duplicate all the images from copy 1 unless this can be scripted somehow.
hope that makes sense
Can you clarify if the command suggested is done at an SLP level or will need to be done for each image that uses the SLP?
I have over 100,000 slp images that I will need to divert the duplication fora and just want to clarify if I just need to run the modify command for the single SLP they are using or if I need to run the command for each of the 100,000 images?
If it's not the first one then this would be an impractable solution unless there's a script I can use and run it against the total number of images.
OK great - we only have 3 SLPs but, as you say, there may be several versions. There should be too many versions and I can manage that. I'm just thankful I don't need to modify each individual SLP job with the new destination.
When I list the SLP versions I can see the 'operations' included within each SLP version. Is there an nbstl command that will allow me to delete one of the operations within an SLP?
The SLP currently has 4 operations:
Operation 1 - backup
Operation 2 - replicate to different Master server
Operation 3 - MSDP duplication to different media server
Operation 4 - duplicate to tape
I would like to delete operation 4 entirely and modify operation 3 to duplicate to Tape rather than MSDP. I can't find the command that will allow me to delete operation 4.
