HI, Tpautoconf The Device

HI,

Tpautoconf

The Device Configuration Wizard normally uses tpautoconf to discover devices. This wizard calls tpautoconf with a different set of options.

Tpconfig configures robots ,drives, drivearrays, drivepaths, and hostsforus With NetBackup.

Robtest  The robotic test utility.

Use them in your environment

Use them in your environment to see the difference.

Use the commands with list/display options:

tpconfig -l

tpautoconf -t

scan will do exactly that - scan for devices at OS level and display a list.

For detailed explanation of each command, see NetBackup Commands Reference Guide  http://www.symantec.com/docs/DOC3684  

robtest is explained in this TN: http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH83129

Re: I somehow have a feeling that

I wonder if the scan cmd should be necessary before running tpautoconf,  because most times we do not run scan and directly run tpautoconf -a successfully!
