I've been searchign around for information on a web services API into OpsCenter, but so far have drawn a blank. Is there a web services API that can be used to integrate into other applications? If so can you point towards further information.
Specifically I want to be able to perform some actions like collected detailed job information or re-run failed jobs based on events coming into an event management system.
WebServices can be consumed by orchestration tools to automate some procedures.
I dont think there is any such service avaiable. On the other hand, NetBackup has built in features that rerun backups that failed. If the errors are transient then the rerun would work, if they're not, then you really need and admin to be looking at what the issue is. Having some third party app rerun it wont achieve much.
There used to be SCOM packs for opscenter, not sure if they're still available. But that was only for event reporting.
That may be so, but the automation is also to initiate things like incident management etc, which I don't think can be done directly from Netbackup either. Re-running a backup job is only one of several posibilities for a failed job; collecting diagnostics for analysis and placing into an automatically opened incident directly from an event management system would add a lot of efficiency to the process.
